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:
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.
Presented to a coach who has shown great dedication to the task. It may be awarded to recognise excellence in team performance, but has often been awarded to coaches whose team has shown great improvement over the year or who achieve above and beyond their expectations. This coach should demonstrate very good communication, planning and organisation of team activities.
2011 MARK OBERMAN
Presented to a coach under 23 years of age, who takes on the task of coaching with dedication. The award recognises a young person who puts their experience back into the club with effort.
