Congratulations on putting your hand up to be a coach. This experience can be one of the most rewarding and challenging for you.

Regardless if you are a seasoned coach or a newbie, if you are open to embracing change, you can always learn something new or pick up different coaching methods that you can integrate into your current style to assist your players and take your team to the next level.

When coaching a domestic team, you have limited time with your players each week, sometimes the results might not come straight away. I strongly recommend you develop the fundamentals of each and every player first. Don’t be too concerned with developing an offensive structure, especially for teams competing in Under 12’s or younger. Try to keep things as simple as possible for your players. Don’t over-complicate things.

Basketball is the most over coached sport in the world. So let’s simplify it and make it about your players learning the fundamentals of the game in a good, positive and fun environment.


  • Must hold a current Working with Children check (WWC) for all persons 18 years and over.
  • Must have completed a Basketball Victoria Member Protection Bylaws declaration for all persons 18 years and over.
  • Abide by the Coaches Code of Conduct at all times
  • Take care of stadiums where you train & play
  • Report any seen damage identified at training venues same day to club Secretary or Training Co-ordinator.
  • Safety of children is paramount – do not leave a player unattended at the conclusion of a training session. If the parent often picks the child up late, speak to the family.
  • Advise the Club Secretary or Training Co-ordinator when you are not training, do not assume the other team that shares the court will be there.
  • Make contact with your Age Coordinator when a fill-in player is required
  • Make contact with your Age Coordinator when you are unable to coach and a fill-in coach is required
  • All coaches are entitled to a Club Polo shirt
