On Tuesday 4 August- the pupil free day, the Athlete Development Academy for years 7 and 8 had a chance to have a google meet with the Head Coach of Melbourne United Basketball Club, Dean Vickerman.
Thirty-seven students joined in their own time, and he talked to us all about what it takes to play or coach at a high level, how to stay motivated during the lockdown, and how his schedule with his team looks.
Dean also talked about his journey and how he got to where he is now and how he was successful.
Overall, this was a great experience for everyone, and I’m sure everyone was able to take something out of it.
