American, Alex Starling is coming to Whyalla to run a 2 day basketball clinic on the 14th and 15th of December at our stadium.
Alex is a basketball superstar in our state who's athleticism is off the scale. His story is an interesting one. Born and raised in Miami Florida, where he played Div 1 NCAA with Bethune Cookman University, he came to Australia in 2012 originally via an AFL scholarship program with the Sydney Swans, but his first love was and is basketball.
Alex ended up in SA’s Premier League (now NBL1) where he has dominated the competition, leading his teams to many Championships and winning several awards including the highest individual honor, the Woolacott Medal multiple times and been named in All Star teams every year.
He moved to the Rockets in 2017 where he became the junior Development Officer, spending his time visiting schools, coaching kids and generally improving skill levels across the NABC Junior program.
Alex has built up his own business (Sleed Basketball - ) which sees him look to make any basketballer better. He deals with all levels from beginners to elite.
Alex is a “pied piper” with kids, they just love him and many go to every clinic he runs. He builds relationships very easily and I am sure if you take the time to say hello you won’t regret it.
Alex’s contact details are on the flyer if you need to know any more information about this clinic.
