Peter has the honour of being an undefeated SEABL Head Coach at present after taking the reins for five games for five wins throughout the 2011 SEABL season while Cheryl Chambers was absent on Australian Gems commitments.
Before coming across to Kilsyth in 2011 Peter was Head Coach of the Senior Women at Diamond Valley for seven seasons, taking them from Division Two, to Championship in the Big V, as well as winning two championships in 2005 and 2008.
Director of Basketball Operations, Rod Popp believes Peter was the right fit to take over the reins from Cheryl Chambers having already developed great relationships with all the girls.
“The Club is very pleased to have Peter Gay coach our Lady Cobras in Season 2012. Peter did an outstanding job in the assistant’s role this past season and filled in as Head Coach on several occasions when Cheryl was absent due to Gems commitments. Peter has been a very successful coach in his own right and will be a fine addition and contributor to the Club.” Popp said.
Peter is excited and nervous about the prospect of leading the Swinburne Lady Cobras in Season 2012 and is looking forward to the challenge of coaching in the SEABL.
“I’m really excited about the challenges that lie ahead; I look forward to being able to repay the faith that the Club has put in me as such an inexperienced coach at the SEABL level”.
“Kilsyth Basketball is a great Club to be a part of, the support that they supply all their coaches with is outstanding and everything going forward is looking really positive” Gay said.
The first task for the new coach will be preparing a roster which can compete for the 2012 SEABL Championship.
When asked about his outlook for the way he would go about leading the Swinburne Kilsyth Lady Cobras in 2012 Peter said he was looking forward to the opportunity.
“In season 2012 my vision for leading the team is that we will be tough, competitive and we will play hard” concluded Gay.
