Coaches Awards

Coaches Awards

City Beach Basketball Club, Coaches Awards

Coaches form a vital part of the basketball experience for our players, often dedicating many hours each week preparing for both training activities and game day.

Often parents double up and volunteer for these roles or our older players gain some early experience and coach a younger team.

We recognise our coaching group in awarding three categories of “Coach Award” each year:

  • Best First Year Coach
  • Junior Coach of the Year
  • Senior Coach of the Year

BEST FIRST YEAR COACH

Presented to the most outstanding coach in their first year with the club. This person may be an experienced coach, or coaching for the first time. The award recognises dedication, organisation and planning, and excellent communication.
