When answering the call from her hometown of Townsville, at the beginning of her most recent recovery from injury, everything Alicia Froling stands for is obvious.
Softly spoken, but determined.
The Froling surname symbolizes a strong pedigree in the game of basketball. Both parents played professionally, and her three siblings are taking the court by storm. Twin sister Keely is a star with the Canberra Capitals in the WNBL and on the 3×3 circuit, her brother Harry a star on a meteoric rise with the Adelaide 36ers, and youngest brother Sam who is embarking on his NBL career with the Illawarra Hawks. The influence that hoops has on and within the family means a lot to this Froling sister.
“It’s very competitive,” Froling explained in discussing the family dynamic and influence. “Since we were little we were always trying to outdo each other but you really cannot help it. We all know and understand the environment that we are in and what we need to do to be the best we can be.
“It kinda sucks getting a lecture from dad on the way home from a game, but it’s valuable knowledge that not everybody would be able to get from a parent.”
The now 23 year old forward began her career as a development player alongside her twin sister Keely with the Townsville Fire for the 2011/12 WNBL season, and would remain as part of her hometown team until 2014.
