Female Development

Team Coaching


Holiday Camps



SIDA offers a team of professional, strategic, energetic and inspirational coaches. The coach we were provided was super organised and planned drills week in and week out. They all respond very well to her coaching. My son keeps telling me how strategic she is too, on top of all the skill work they do. He has never learnt so much, from on court strategies to the finessing of individual shooting techniques etc.  She also has a delightful bright manner!  I would highly recommend the tuition of SIDA coaches.


Our son Hamish has been training with Sara for around a year now.  She has been incredibly helpful and enthusiastic, and he has just achieved his aim of joining a rep team largely due to her skill development and encouragement.  I would highly recommend her and her coaching team if you have a child who wants to take the next step in their basketball career.


My son’s school basketball team has been lucky to be coached by SIDA for the past couple of years.  The boys have benefited from the passion, dedication, motivation and mentoring shown. The coaches passion for the game holds no bounds. I noticed that the SIDA coach was very demonstrative and got on to the court with the boys to show exactly what needed to be done. The boys learned so fast as well as many laughs shared along the way. SIDA has given them a host of skills set, plays and ways to drive the ball with the aim of dominating their games. They were encouraged to be level headed, well mannered and respectful for themselves, each other, their opponents as well as the referees.  SIDA’s approach is firm but fair, positive and constructive. My son has also been fortunate to have taken several holiday programs with SIDA … these have been intensive and detailed, as well as physically demanding but age & skill appropriate – tailored for the attendees. I would not hesitate in recommending SIDA to any team, individual, school or social club for basketball coaching.
