Being a part of the Basketball Community is a wonderful way to create relationships, develop life skills, give back to your community and for parents an opportunity to show support for their children. Here is an overview on what is involved in being a coach:
- Anyone can be a basketball coach (for all coaches over the age of 18 they must have a current Working With Children’s Check) with many clubs providing coaches’ courses or mentor programs to assist development.
- Coaches are required to train their team once a week and attend the Saturday game at their fixtured time.
- The EDJBA relies heavily on parents and older siblings to volunteer to be a coach and the general consensus is that it is an extremely rewarding experience.
- For the best interests of the team, it is important that the coach is committed and operates under Basketball Victoria's - Code of Conduct
