Technology to the rescue

April 7 1906 – Mount Vesuvius erupts and devastates Naples. 1964 - Oscar winner Russell Crowe was born on this day. Australia has always claimed the New Zealand born entertainment heavyweight, whose career took off in the 1992 Aussie flick Romper Stomper. 1984 - The Kenny Loggins hit song Footloose, from the movie (pictured) of the same name, was number one in the charts.

WINDING DOWN THE OLD FASHIONED WAY There are few things more relaxing than dipping into a hot bath after a long day and it does signal to your brain that it’s time to shut down. Incorporating aromatherapy oils, bath salts and your favourite chill music certainly helps.

MICROWAVE CLEANING HACK Place large microwave-safe bowl with 1 cup of water and a chopped-up lemon, lime, or orange or several tablespoons of vinegar inside. Turn the appliance on high for several minutes or until the solution boils and the window is steamy, then let it sit to cool for 15 minutes before opening the door. Remove and wipe out the inside and outside with a sponge.

It is the new normal as sporting groups, dance classes and music lessons have all swapped face to face class time with online learning opportunities with both live stream and video options to keep the community engaged. The challenges have been many but the ability to stay in touch with students and members has been invaluable as the community uses technology to stay in touch. Sam Dwyer, from Mount Gambier’s Dwyer’s Boxing Club, said the transition to remote training had been made easier because of technology the club was already using.

“…we can really only focus on the fitness side of the sport online…” Sam Dwyer (Dwyer’s Boxing Club) “We already had a very robust app available,” Sam said. “A local app developer created a very versatile app called AxipApp which we were already utilising, and we were able to offer the online classes directly through our existing app.” With boxing being such a technical sport, there has been a focus on fitness from Sam (pictured inset) and the team. “We can really only focus on the fitness side of the sport online,” Sam said. “We have been providing technical lessons for the competitive boxers and we are able to monitor their form via webcam. For our members who were coming for fitness in the first place it has been a much easier transition.” And Dwyer’s Boxing Club’s online work has actually attracted new members for the club. “We have seen amazing support from our existing members and many of them have continued to support us if they have the means to do so,” Sam said. “We have also picked up some additional members for our club, from as far away as Adelaide and Melbourne. It is immensely important for us to be able to provide value to our members who are supporting us, and to keep our staff employed in this difficult time.”

“…. It is important for their mental health as much as anything else….” Maria Slape (MJ Dance Studio) The region’s dance studios were also quick on the uptake, with Maryke Dance Academy sharing Ballet Australia online workshops through their social media and local calisthenics clubs doing something similar with their disciplines. MJ Dance Studio director Maria Slape (pictured above) said even before the studio was closed, her staff had moved to online classes. “My staff have been brilliant,” she said. “They are younger and have been able to really work well with the technology to provide the best experience for our students. We spent a whole day together learning how best to deliver our classes online. We are just so lucky we have this technology.” The studio’s parents have loved the smooth transition to online classes although Maria admits it has been a challenge for her to modify her teaching methods. “After 32 years of teaching one way that has been challenging,” she said. “It is definitely harder work but we just wanted to keep the kids engaged. It is important for their mental health as much as anything else. This is what they love and they are still able to see their teachers, see their friends from class and keep dancing.” Moving online has also enabled Maria to tap into using guest teachers more regularly as the expense of bringing them to Mount Gambier has been eradicated. “The network of dance teachers is really supportive of each other,” Maria said. “Being able to use guest lifestyle1.net | 04

“…our number one priority was to keep people active and to give people something that will keep their minds busy…” Kim Cella (Hype Dance Studio) teachers more often will definitely be one of the positives to come out of this.” And while the online learning was initially about keeping the student engaged, Maria admits it has also been a godsend for her and her staff. “For me, being able to see the kids faces has been important mentally,” Maria said. “That’s why I have always loved teaching – it’s the kids.” Kim Cella, from Hype Dance Studio, agreed moving classes online had been both challenging and rewarding and like MJ Dance Studio, they pre-empted the closures and got on the front foot with developing online learning. “Our number one priority was to keep people active and to give people something that will keep their minds busy throughout the tough times ahead,” Kim said. “We basically had 24 hours to implement our online class plan and while there were some teething issues but we have overcome those now and are still running our 42 class schedule at the moment. Both students and their parents have been very grateful that they can continue to enjoy dancing even though we can’t physically dance together in the same space.” Hype Dance is also streaming their adult hip hop class for free and open to everyone every Tuesday night at 6.30pm.

“…the kids are taking any challenges in their stride and continuing to practice their love for music and most importantly still having fun…” Faith Monger (Phoenix Music Studio) Phoenix Music Studio has also taken up the challenge of continuing instrumental and vocal lessons with the help of technology, with director Jodi Swiggs working overtime to ensure lessons can still be delivered. Piano teacher faith Monger said it had certainly been a different experience for teachers and students alike. “But is has also been a rewarding one nonetheless as it’s still allowing the students to learn,” Faith said. “The most challenging thing I am finding at the moment is teaching

rhythmical elements in songs because of the slight delay using video streaming services. In a face to face lesson, I would clap out rhythms and the students would join in getting to practice new note values and accents, however clapping is not an easy way to communicate on zoom.” The main thing, is, though, the lessons are continuing and the students are still thriving. “My students are enjoying the online lessons and it is giving each of them a sense of routine and normality at the moment,” Faith said. “Our lessons are scheduled for the exact same time as our face to face lessons were and for some of them, their night plays out exactly the same with dancing, piano and singing lessons all going ahead, but from their own home. Most of the students are also using online platforms to do schoolwork from home so this is just another level of their learning. It’s still a different environment to be learning in but all the kids are taking any challenges in their stride and continuing to practice their love for music and most importantly still having fun.”

“…I thought I was going to lose my mind with no basketball so this has been great…” Matt Sutton (Basketball Mount Gambier) Basketball Mount Gambier’s Matt Sutton has also embraced the use of technology to keep the hundreds of kids in the region who love basketball connected to the sport. “I had been setting up videos and challenges and now I am working through Interact Limestone Coast facebook page,” Matt said. “I just want to keep coming up with different things to keep the kids involved.” There are two sessions a week, with Matt taking the Tuesday 4.15pm session and guest presenters, including Kyle Tipene, running the Thursday 4.15pm session. Matt sets up the sessions to work for kids with a home court area and realises once winter hits and the weather turns, there will be no more shooting drills but other skills to focus on. “We are just making sure what we are offering are things people can do effectively at home,” Matt said. And he agrees it has been as much about keeping him engaged as the kids. “I thought I was going to lose my mind with no basketball so this has been great,” he said.


THERE ARE STILL STORIES TO TELL Libraries across the region are embracing ways of still delivering services remotely with their communities, with click and collect services in place as well as a raft of online programs, including story telling. Libraries are also reminding customers to access the raft of e-resources available. The Mount Gambier Library continues to offer modified services to the community electronically and via a ‘click and collect’ arrangement. Mount Gambier Library manager Georgina Davison said customers can reserve their items including DVDs, CDs, books, magazines, jigsaws and other items online or over the phone with library staff available Monday to Friday. “We do appreciate that books can be a welcome respite from the current state of affairs and can provide comfort for those in social isolation as well as educational resources for home schooling,” Mrs Davison said. With strict hygiene procedures in place, items are being quarantined prior to becoming available for customers. Library staff have also been busy creating innovative programs online. “The team have really embraced the online delivery of services and our most recent ‘Storytime’ recording on our Facebook page had an impressive 9000 views,” Mrs Davison said. “We will continue to deliver our under five program every Tuesday and Thursday at 10.30am via our Facebook page and we hope this will go a little way to keeping children entertained and smiling during this difficult time.”

Facebook page, visit the website www. mountgambier.com.au/library or phone and speak to one of the staff. Millicent Library has also instigated a Call, Click and Collect service so that community members still have access to the physical collections from the Millicent Library. At the front door of the Millicent Library is an intercom system: call us on it and we will select some books, magazines or DVDs for you or you can collect your hold. Alternatively email them at library@wattlerange.sa.gov. au, message on facebook, phone on (08)87330903 or SMS 0417 842 875. The Naracoorte Library has stopped all borrowing of in-library items but staff are able to help you access the online resources on offer through South Australian Libraries and register you as a member over the phone on (08)8762 2338 or via an email at LibraryMail@nlc. sa.gov.au

“…we do appreciate that books can be a welcome respite…as well as educational resources for home schooling…” Georgina Davison (Mount Gambier Library) A number of other library resources can also be accessed online including eBooks, eAudio books and e-magazines, Storybox for children, Cultural Atlas and Lynda.com that contains thousands of video training courses for design, IT, photography, web, music, animation and more. The Library has also welcomed an initiative from history research program Ancestry Library Edition enabling remote access to this resource. “Until now access to Ancestry Library Edition for USA, UK and Australian history research was only available from library computers however with libraries closed to the public the vendor has provided remote access via our website for people to use from their home computers,” Mrs Davison said. To keep up-to-date on how the Library can continue to assist you during the closure follow Mount Gambier Library’s

health and safety measures, offering digital solutions for families. Library branches across the shire have closed their doors to the public as per State Government advice, however the service is adapting to the restrictions. The popular weekly children’s Storytime program, previously offered within the Library every Friday morning, will now be rolled out in a new virtual format. Library and information services manager Yvette Parker said the concept was simple, Storytime will remain at the same day and time, however families would now be able to tune in to watch the session from the comfort of their home. “We want to make sure that while the library doors are closed, we can still offer lifelong learning opportunities for families,” she said. “Regular reading is critical to children’s’ development, and with so much going on right now, it’s vital they keep up their learning skills and regular routines. The familiar Storytime concept will remain the same. Rather than families coming into our Library space, they can instead tune in to watch the session from 11am via the Glenelg Libraries Facebook page.” For further information on the virtual storytime sessions, please visit the Glenelg Libraries Facebook page.

The 2020 Natural Resources South East Photographic Competition is now open. This year’s theme is Life in our Landscape, celebrating the connectivity of each element of our local landscape, and why our region is an amazing place to work, live and explore. Although diverse, the

South East landscape is intrinsically connected - from the soil that forms a base for produce and habitat, and our precious water resources that nourish ecosystems and the food we eat - to the native plants and wildlife that call our region home, and our local communities that rely on healthy landscapes for thriving production. Your entry should showcase something about what it’s like to live where you are, and do what you do. Seeing the South East landscape from your perspective is what the competition is all about. For entry forms, rules, terms and conditions go to the Natural Resources South East Facebook page or follow the links on the NRM website.

Environmental warriors Student leaders from across the region met for the first instalment of the Young Environmental Leaders Program (YELP) in Naracoorte earlier this term. The program, facilitated by the South East NRM Board, has seen a significant increase in school participation with 90 students from 23 schools participating this year, compared with 62 students and 15 schools last year. Environmental education coordinator Vanessa Freebairn said students were keen to learn and build on their knowledge of environmental issues. “The big increase in numbers this year is really encouraging,” Vanessa said. “We’re excited about

It was then the students’ turn to put their brains well and truly into gear, workshopping ideas for projects they will work on with their schools during the year.

Taylor, from Naracoorte South Primary School, was excited to be involved and learn more about local environmental issues. “I nominated to be in YELP because I thought it would be cool and interesting,” Taylor said. “I want to help the environment as much as I can. I also hope to learn more about the Red-tail Black-Cockatoo and how my school can help them.”

The next meeting of the YELP group will be at the Earthkeepers Camp, scheduled for later in the year. “This year we’re focussing on local landscape topics - pests, biodiversity, water, and soils,” Vanessa said. “We’re really looking forward to seeing the creative projects the YELP students will lead.”

Are you up for the challenge? Classic board games

Everything old is new again at the moment, with board games being dragged out from the back of the cupboard, as families find new ways to stay entertained and that could see books coming back in style as well. Books and reading have been at the centre of the Premier’s Reading Challenge, a literacy engagement program, initiated in 2004, and 2020 is a great time to get involved. The challenge focuses on encouraging students to read more books and to improve literacy levels, with students set the task of reading 12 books from the beginning of the school year through to the beginning of September. And it is certainly not too late to get involved. Just ask your teacher who your school’s Premier’s Reading Challenge coordinator is and hit them up for a student reading record or you can go direct to the Premier’s Reading Challenge website. The idea of the challenge is to read a selection of books from the recommended reading list provided for your age group or Year level by the Premier’s Reading Challenge and also a selection of books of your own choosing – the breakdown for each Year level is on the Premier’s Reading Challenge website. eBooks and audio books can be included in the challenge, as well as books you read with your family at home and books you might have been asked to read for school. Simply record your reading on your student reading record as you go, and get an adult, including a parent/carer, librarian or teacher, to sign off and verify that you read the book. Your school will have set a due date for completing the challenge and handing in your form. Lifestyle1 is going to showcase some of the listed books in the coming weeks.

SAVED

Cluedo Cluedo is a murder mystery game for three to six players that was devised in 1943 by Anthony E. Pratt from Birmingham, England. Mr Pratt said he was inspired to come up with the concept by a murder mystery parlour game he used to play with his friends when he was younger. Mr Pratt and his wife Elva, who had helped in designing the game, presented it to Waddingtons’ executive Norman Watson, who immediately purchased it and provided its trademark name of Cluedo. The game was first manufactured by Waddingtons in the UK in 1949. Although the patent was granted in 1947, due to postwar shortages in the UK the game was not officially launched for two years. Since then, it has been relaunched and updated several times, and it is currently owned and published by the American game and toy company Hasbro. The object of the game is to determine who murdered the game’s victim, where the crime took place, and which weapon was used. Each player assumes the role of one of the six suspects and attempts to deduce the correct answer by strategically moving around a game board representing the rooms of a mansion and collecting clues about the circumstances of the murder from the other players. Traditionally the characters/suspects are Miss Scarlett, Reverend Green, Colonel Mustard, Mrs White, Professor Plum and Mrs Peacock, while the murder weapons are candelstick, dagger, lead pipe, revolver, robe and wrench.

Lydia Williams & Lucinda Gifford Little Lydia learns to be the best that she can be as she competes in a variety of sports against very unusual competitors. An inspiring celebration of self-belief, the joy to be had in sport, and the importance of persistence. Little Lydia loves sport. She lives in the outback and is friends with all the animals. When she asks Emu, Kangaroo and Koala to play sport with her, she soon discovers that each of them has a special talent. But does Lydia have a gift for sport too? And if she does, how will she discover it? A funny and triumphant picture book by Lydia Williams, goalkeeper for the Matildas. Lydia Williams is an Indigenous Australian soccer player. She grew up on the red dirt of Western Australia. During her childhood she travelled with her family to many Aboriginal communities where she learnt how to play sport with bare feet. Her family taught her how to live off the land and the values of Indigenous culture; they even had two pet kangaroos. When her family moved to Canberra, Lydia started playing soccer competitively as a way to make friends. Having played soccer for nearly twenty years, she currently plays for Melbourne City in the W-League. Lydia is the first-choice goalkeeper for the Australian Matildas and is also signed to the Seattle Reign FC in the United States. Lucinda Gifford is the author and illustrator of many well-loved books for kids. Many years ago, Lucinda studied architecture in Scotland, where she learned to draw fancy buildings and moody scenery.

STUCK IN THE MUD

IMPOSSIBLE MUSIC

R.A. Spratt Things are about to get messy for the Peski Kids as mud-run madness descends on Currawong! Chaos parachutes into Currawong when the annual Mud Run hits town. The Peski kids are soon swept up in the festivities. Or in April’s case, strapped to a vision-impaired competitor in the race. Can Joe beat the fierce opposition? Can Fin hit Joe with a giant mud ball? Can April make it through a school day without getting expelled? Who knows? But when the prize money goes missing someone has to figure out what really happened under all that mud! R.A. Spratt is the author of The Peski Kids, Friday Barnes and The Adventures of Nanny Piggins. In her previous life she was a television writer. Unlike the Peski kids, R.A. Spratt never fights with her brother, but only because he moved to Hong Kong to get away from her. R.A. lives in Bowral, NSW, where she has three chickens, two goldfish and a dog. She also has a husband and two daughters.

Sean Williams When the song is over, what remains? A novel about rediscovering yourself when everything you once took for granted is gone. Music is Simon’s life - which is why he is devastated when a ministroke obliterates his hearing. He resists attempts to help him adjust to his new state, refusing to be counselled, refusing to learn sign language, refusing to have anything to do with Deaf culture. Refusing, that is, until he meets G, a tough-as-nails girl dealing with her own newly experienced hearing loss. In an emotionally compelling tale crackling with originality, Simon’s quest to create an entirely new form of music forces him into a deeper understanding of his relationship to the hearing world, of himself, and of the girl he meets along the way. Sean Williams was born in the dry, flat lands of South Australia, where he still lives with his wife and family. He is the author of more than 40 novels and 120 published short stories.

Get an early start on your spring cleaning Nothing feels quite as satisfying as coming home to a clean house. Since cleaning your house from top to bottom can be overwhelming — not to mention, time-consuming — take it room by room or appliance by appliance with these tried-and-tested spring cleaning tips. No matter if you have five minutes to freshen up or an entire weekend to spare, give all your home’s trouble spots a refresh with these cleaning howtos And while you might not think about cleaning your reusable shopping bags or vacuum on a regular basis, spring cleaning season is the perfect time to spruce up your daily go-tos, especially since they collect dirt and grime just like everything else.

Choc peppermint slice 1 3/4 cups plain flour 1/3 cup Cocoa 2 3/4 cups icing sugar mixture 200g butter, melted, cooled 2 tablespoons milk Doormats Trap more dirt by using two mats, one outside the door and one inside. To refresh, hose off and air-dry mats. Vacuum indoor ones on both sides — going over the back will push trapped dirt out onto the floor where it will be easier to pick up. Grocery Bags Reusable grocery bags cut down on wasteful plastic, but they can get grimy with time. Run your reusable bags through the washer regularly to remove any lingering food bacteria, turning them inside out before you toss them in. Pay attention to the bag’s fabric when selecting a dryer setting. Cutting Boards If you think that nasty mark is permanent, you’re wrong. Run the cut side of a lemon over the board to remove food stains and smells. Want an extra cleaning oomph? Sprinkle it with salt or baking soda first. Fridge You probably wipe down your fridge’s interior shelving on the regular already, but don’t forget about the rest. Pop out the door shelves and bins, and wash in warm, soapy water to get rid of food bacteria and spillage. Stainless Steel To make this surface sparkle again, mix a solution of 1 teaspoon dish detergent and 1 litre hot tap water. Using a microfiber cloth, rub the detergent solution onto the marks in small sections, going with the grain. Rinse with clean hot water only, and dry immediately with a clean cloth. Junk Drawer Start small and pick your stash spot. Empty it out and suck up dust with your vacuum’s nozzle. Toss or relocate any items you no longer need or that don’t belong there. Everything else goes back, but this time in an organised manner. Repurpose plates and bowls to

store cords, stamps, and other odds and ends. A nonslip liner will keep them in place. Shower Drain To freshen drains and help keep them free-flowing, mix 1/2 cup baking soda with 1/4 cup table salt. Pour the mixture down the drain, followed by 1 cup heated vinegar. It will foam and bubble. Let it stand for 15 minutes — longer does not work any better. Follow by running hot tap water for at least 15 to 30 seconds.

Ceilings Spring cleaning season is all about focusing on the spots you forget about the rest of the year. Grab an extendable duster and attack ceiling fans, hanging and recessed lights, moldings and more. Outdoor Furniture Get your outdoor furniture ready for lounging. To do this, add a squirt of dish detergent to a bowl of warm water, then wipe down tables and chairs. Finish it all off with a spray of water from the garden hose.

160g copha 1 1/2 teaspoons peppermint essence Green food colouring 300g dark chocolate, chopped

Method Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan-forced. Grease a 20cm x 30cm lamington pan. Line base and sides with baking paper, extending paper 2cm above edges of pan. Sift flour, cocoa and 1/2 cup icing sugar into a large bowl. Add butter. Stir to combine. Press into prepared pan. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool completely in pan. Place milk, 1/2 the copha and remaining icing sugar in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 4 minutes or until melted and smooth. Stir in peppermint essence and tint green with colouring. Working quickly, pour over base in pan and spread evenly. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until set. Place chocolate and remaining copha in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes or until smooth. Cool for 10 minutes. Pour evenly over mint layer. Refrigerate for 3 hours or until set. Stand at room temperature for 5 minutes before cutting. Serve.

The future of Penola in the spotlight Wattle Range Council, together with Wax Design, is committed to moving forward with the Penola Main Street Masterplan and Placemaking Strategy. As a result of the cancellation of the drop-in design sessions due to social distancing requirements, an online survey has been developed to continue with the community consultation phase of this project. The survey will support future community consultation on the Penola town centre once the current social distancing restrictions have been lifted. Wax Design was engaged by council after a selective tender process and have an extensive award-winning body of work. In 2017, Wax Design was awarded the Mainstreet SA Public Space and Streetscape Award for the Victor Harbor Mainstreet Precinct project and received the Architecture SA Urban Design Award for the Willunga Main Street project in 2019. The Penola Main Street Masterplan and Placemaking Strategy project aims to enhance and protect the unique character of the town’s main street, encouraging increased activation, storytelling and cultural representation and providing a

“...now more than ever we need to focus on positive building projects for the future...” Des Noll (Wattle Range Mayor) welcoming space for residents, businesses and visitors. The survey will assist the project team to gain a better understanding of what makes Penola a great place and what opportunities exist to enhance the town centre in the future. The results of the survey will be used to prepare a draft design framework and concept plan to reflect the community’s vision for the town centre. The design framework will be made available for public comment. Wattle Range Council Mayor Des Noll encourages all members of the community to complete the survey. “Now more than ever we need to focus on positive building projects for the future, which includes designing

a main street that will ensure Penola remains a must-stop town for visitors and a great place to live and work,” Mayor Noll said. The survey will be available online on council’s Facebook page and website at www.wattlerange.sa.gov. au/haveyoursay from this week. Submissions will close on Wednesday, May 6 at 5pm.

A simple, neighbourly gesture of kindness is about to make its debut in Mount Gambier. The Kindness neighbour card has been introduced by the Mount Gambier & Districts Health Advisory Council (MG&DHAC) with the message “let’s make kindness go viral”. The card initiative, which was developed by a Queensland council, allows people to safely offer services to neighbours in isolation. Mount Gambier and Districts Health Advisory Council presiding member Maureen Klintberg (pictured above left) said she hoped the use of the cards would become widespread.

“…the cards may be a lifeline for someone in need, who may just need a friendly chat….” Maureen Klintberg “The Kindness card is a nice way to show your neighbours you care,” she said. “The cards may be a lifeline for someone in need, who may just need a friendly chat. “You can offer to walk the dog, take the bins out or help out with shopping if someone is in isolation. It is times like this it is essential we support one another and show compassion to those who need it, neighbour to neighbour, street to street. “All you have to do is print the card out, add in your details and then pop the card into the mailbox or slide it under the door of those around you.” “If someone requires help, they can reach out to you on the number provided.”

The card includes safety information, including hand-washing reminders and ways to avoid direct contact. The easily downloadable card is available via a dedicated page named ‘COVID Kindness’ on Member for Mount Gambier Troy Bell’s website, under the community tab. There will also be printed copies available at local venues that are open for business, displaying the Kindness posters. Mrs Klintberg said she was grateful to the Sunshine Coast Council for sharing their resources. “It’s so simple yet priceless to someone in need,” she said. “Self-isolation, loneliness and community disconnection are going to prove a major challenge for many people and we need to move to protect our mental health and wellbeing. “Let’s join together and support each other, showing how our proud Mount Gambier community can connect and build on community spirit and optimism.” “I’d love to see these cards take off across the Limestone Coast and I encourage any interested councils to contact me. Let’s spread this far and wide.” Mr Bell (pictured above right) said he believed the initiative would have major benefits for the local community. “Never has our mental health been more important than at this time,” he said. “Regional communities are famous for their resilience and we need to look out for each other during these unprecedented times. “If this simple gesture can share the load just a little, we’re doing a wonderful service to our community.”

“…if this simple gesture can share the load just a little, we’re doing a wonderful service to our community…” Member for Mount Gambvier Troy Bell

“...the boys kept me sane during a tough period of my life...”

Against the odds Back to back Junior Lakers Coach of the Year Awards, the successful defence of the Under 18 Men’s South Australian Country title and winning the CBL South West Men conference title for the second successive year has capped off a tumultuous few months for Matthew Berkefeld. A quiet achiever who has flown under the radar for most of his sporting career, the gun basketballer and footballer has never faced such adversity as he has in recent months. Matt suffered a serious concussion during the 2019 football season and not only did his condition not improve, it deteriorated, seeing Matt lose the ability to read, write and drive a car and he is very clear that getting through has been a team effort. “I was lucky to have plenty of assistance from family, other coaches, parents and the players themselves who ensured things went smoothly,” Matt said. “Robbie (Young) was on call to take trainings when I was too dizzy to attend and Sonya (Knight) and Bryan (Green) were very helpful in Bendigo.” Despite the challenges, Matt’s love of the game, passion for coaching and desire to continue to work with his talented group of Under 18 players saw him soldier on when possible. “Coaching the boys was a great escape from my own problems,” Matt said. “Luckily, I am close to recovered with my doctor thinking I will be completely normal within a few months.”

“...coaching the boys was a great escape from my own problems...” His support staff, which included assistant coach Mitch Hunter, team manager Brad Norman and long time Lakers coach Robbie Young, all stepped up, from getting Matt to training, to taking the sessions when Matt’s health would not allow him to head out to the basketball stadium. And whether it was Matt or one of his support staff running training, the sessions had the same focus – fun and competitiveness. “From a weekly point of view Mitch and I made an effort to make trainings as fun as possible,” Matt said. “We never want the

“...we wanted to give all players the opportunity to grow and gain direct feedback...” season to feel like a grind. To do this we tried to make everything competitive and to also mix in various fun games to work on finishing, shooting and decision making.” Small group sessions and the chance to work one on one with the players was also a critical part of the team’s preparation for each tournament. “We wanted to give all players the opportunity to grow and gain direct feedback,” Matt said. The support for Matt, during what was such a difficult time, not only came from his coaching and team management staff but also his players and the wider basketball community. “I was grateful to the boys who were understanding of my situation and also to the many other Lakers coaches and former players who reached out to me during this time,” Matt said. “The boys kept me sane during a tough period of my life as trainings and games were the only times I left the house for three months.”

Going back to back at the State championships was the clear highlight of the representative season for the dual Junior Coach of the Year.

“...we never want the season to feel like a grind...”

“It sounds obvious but winning the State title was a fitting way for the senior guys to finish their junior Lakers careers,” Matt said. “Over the weekend we were able to play some golf together, catch up with the families and finish the season on a positive note on and off the court.” Matt was also the architect of the Lakers Men’s successful title defence in the Country Basketball League in Victoria, in the South West conference. “Both the Under 18 guys and the men’s team really got along which I feel is very important,” Matt said. “We spent a lot of time together off the court and enjoyed our work on the court. There was plenty of laughter and banter during trainings but the guys were also good in knowing when to knuckle down and get to work too. Having an understanding and positive group of parents was also very helpful to our teams.” Above - The 2020 Under 18 Lakers Men (Matt Berkefeld pictured front row far left) Below - Lakers 2018/19 CBL winning men’s team with Matt Berkefeld front right.

It was a tough week for Lower South East SAPSASA tennis last month when they were graded into Division One for their Statewide tournament, taking on some of South Australia's best rising talent. Despite not recording a win, the mixed tennis competition provided a highlight for the players, winning the vast majority of the matches, which unfortauntely did not count towards the final standings. The team was coached by Duncan Savage and he was proud of the efforts of the group. Another positive was the new friendships forged across the net, in what was the last tennis played for players from iths region for the season, with junior finals cancelled.
