2017/2018 Representative Coaching Applications

Gold Coast Basketball are now calling for coach applications for the 2017-2018 representative season.

Due to Queensland hosting the Commonwealth Games, Basketball Queensland have modified the format for their 2018 State Championships, with the U16-U18’s championships to be run in mid January, and the U12-U14 championships to be run in early July. Full dates and venues can be sourced here http://basketballqld.com.au/competitions/junior/state-championships/


It is expected that Gold Coast Basketball will field a number of teams for boys and girls from Under 12's through to Under 21's.

In alignment with these changes, start dates have been provided below.

Please note that coaching applications are due COB Friday 23rd June 2017 Coaches are encouraged to apply for multiple positions. Although the U12-U14’s don’t start their programs until later in the year, our intention is to select all coaches at the same time.
