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
that ASP were not around when I was playing"
I would like to say thank you to Sean and Luke for bringing ASP to RAFC. I have seen the difference in a number of junior players and a major difference in our senior players, with regards to fitness, speed and sharpness. The entire programme that ASP gives and stands for, is really up there amongst the best this country has to offer in terms of Sports Science. ASP have assisted in taking RAFC to a complete new level of professionalism in their approach to football and their overall wellness. I can speak about what you have done for RAFC as I am an ex professional footballer and know what it takes to get to the top. I have only one regret and that is that ASP were not around when I was playing. However, we at RAFC are very excited about the future with ASP not only for what it does for the players but your entire professional approach to detail on individuals and groups.
We at RAFC hope that we continue to have a long and healthy relationship with ASP and ensure we at RAFC go from strength to strength - Kevin Mudie, Ex Pro
Dear Sean and ASP staff members
A short note to let you know about my progress since we last spoke. As you know, since you have been involved with me on an on-going basis, after the Engen cup where I received “Defender of the Tournament” I signed a pro contract with Bid Boys where I played for two seasons. Subsequent to that I played for Atromitos Football Club in Cyprus then came back to South Africa and spent one season with Mpumalanga Black Aces in the PSL. I am now back in Cyprus with Atromitos Football Club.
The good news is that I have just received my third international cap playing for the Cyprus Under 21 National Team. The three caps were awarded to me in the games against Bosnia, Germany and San Marino.
Finally I would like to say a big thank you to ASP and its staff for assisting me with my speed, strength and agility which has ultimately helped me get where I am today.
