Cat Sadler

WBBL Player - Assistant Coach & U16 Girls Head Coach

Cat is a former NCAA Division I basketball player who played at Iona College for 4 years. She also competed at the NCAA Division II level, completing her fifth and final year of eligibility at Long Island University – Post. Throughout her career, Cat has played on a nationally ranked AAU programme, won conference all-team accolades in High School, and broken a 3-point shooting record in her freshman year at Iona. ​

After her collegiate career Cat started playing professionally in England, gaining 3 player of the year awards and competing in 4 national finals in the Women’s National Basketball League, in just 4 seasons. Averaging just under 25 points per game throughout those 4 years, Cat made the jump to the WBBL in the Essex Rebel’s inaugural season, earning captain status and making history by capturing the team’s first home and away victories as a newly established professional club. At the University of Essex, Cat became a 1,000 point. scorer in just 40 appearances, and set personal bests in 3-point shooting, hitting 10 3-pointers in a single game three times. She also represented the University of Essex in an international tournament in China, where she led the team in scoring and rebounding, and helped lead the Women’s 1st team to the BUCS semi-finals, the farthest the team has ever gotten in BUCS competitions for women’s basketball. Throughout her time in England, Cat has also coached at numerous competitive levels. She was appointed and served as the South Region’s U13 and U15 girls team and was one of the South’s lead RPC coaches.
