About this site

Milestones & misses is a site that publishes feature articles celebrating sportsmen and sportswomen achieving milestones such as:

  • Playing 100 games in the AFL (Australian Football League) or WNBL (Women’s National Basketball League)
  •  Winning a club or league best & fairest or MVP
  • Representing Australia at a major Championships (Olympic Games or World Championships).

In sport as with life in general it is common that milestones are only achieved after overcoming adversity, so whilst articles on this site celebrate achieving milestones they will also cover the misses along the journey, such as a player not being selected by their club or playing minimal game-time, spending a prolonged period on the sidelines due to injury, or missing a critical shot at goal.

Milestones & misses will focus on three teams in particular, the St Kilda Football Club in the AFL, the Jayco Dandenong Rangers in the WNBL and Australia’s Women’s National Basketball Team, the Opals.

Articles that will be published on Milestones & misses include:
