ASP’s involvement at the 3 training camps leading up to the (Commonwealth) Games was critical to our success -Patrick Fick - Head Coach
“On behalf of Basketball South Africa, I would like to congratulate Sean Van Staden on his comprehensive contribution to the recent performance of the SA Men’s National Team at the 2006 Commonwealth Games held in Melbourne Australia.
ASP’s involvement at the 3 training camps leading up to the Games was critical to our success. He interacts very well with the players, and they embraced his strength training programmes, and his warm-up and stretching exercises helped ensure no serious injuries were experienced, despite the intensity of our practice sessions.
Sean’s guidance regarding recovery and his fitness and mental testing gave our coaches valuable insight into our athletes’ physical and mental preparedness leading up to this competition.
As Head Coach, I strongly recommend other sporting codes adopt his input and contribution on a regular basis.”
Coach Patrick Fick, S.A Men’s National Head Coach, May 2006
