There's a special family connection among the 2019-2020 Horsham Lady Hornets.
Tony Sleep took on the head coaching role this season, which was the same role his father John once had.
In Tony's side are the daughters of three basketballers John used to coach.
Imogen Worthy, Molly Lakin and Rebecca McIntyre will all be in action for the Lady Hornets this season, while their parents Amanda Worthy, Nicole Lakin and Karen Bird also previously played for the Hornets.
Amanda Worthy said she was proud to see her daughter playing just like she did.
"When Imogen came down to try out, my husband said to me, 'I think you're more keen for her to be in the team than she is'," Worthy said. "I just want her to have what I had with basketball.
"I remember playing junior squad basketball and I just have the best memories, and I'm still really good friends with a lot of those girls. Those experiences are with you forever."
McIntyre said she was proud to be a part of a long lineage of families giving back to basketball in Horsham.
"It's interesting how it all turns around and the cycle of generations," McIntyre said.
"My whole junior life was spent in this stadium and it molded me into who I am today.
"That's a really special thing about here, there are so many generations that have been touched by the association and continue to give back. And you can see it growing with the next generation again today."
John Sleep said, when he coached, he focused just as much on helping the players grow as he did basketball.
"That was the one thing I put my mind to - I wanted the kids to hold onto what they learnt for years to come, even as they finished basketball," John said.
One particular moment of John's teaching stood out to Karen Bird.
"I remember playing Broadmeadows, who had a bit of a reputation," Bird said.
"There was a girl out there who kept pinching me. I ran up to the bench and said to John, 'if she keeps pinching me, I'm going to hit her'.
"And John said, 'God no! Get out there and don't hit her. Please don't hit her!' I think it held me back."
Tony proudly carries on John's coaching philosophy.
"My Mum and Dad were on the first Hornets' committee, and they taught my brothers and I about how to love the game and how to give back," Tony said.
"One of the first things we do this season with the Lady Hornets is to shake hands with the opposition at the start of games, acknowledge the scorers and the people who are volunteering."
It's something that fills John with pride.
"I'm proud of the way Tony has been going about his coaching," John said.
