Justin Schueller will be back to lead the Kilsyth Cobra Men for the 2018 SEABL season following a solid solid first year campaign as Head Coach.
Schueller led the Cobras to an 11-13 record, tied for the fourth best record in the East Conference, with his team proving that they could match it with the league’s best teams regardless of who was available to play.
Schueller also found success away from the Cobras in 2017, as he was named the Under 17 Australian Men’s Head Coach and a Development Coach with the NBL’s Melbourne United. With a year of impressive coaching development, Schueller is set to lead the Cobras back to postseason contention, with his style of play promising to turn the Cobras into one of the SEABL’s toughest and most electrifying teams.
Kilsyth Basketball Manager of Basketball Operations, Mark Watkins, is excited to have Schueller and Lady Cobras Coach Sam Woosnam back on board for 2018, and is optimistic that both teams will be positioned to contend for a championship.
“Both Sam and Justin will return in 2018, giving us two high quality, well respected coaches to lead our SEABL teams,” Watkins said.
“The club has worked hard to get both teams in a position to put exciting teams together which have a good shot at winning a Championship, and we’re confident that both Sam and Justin give us the best chance of achieving that.”
