Become a Coach

Teaching the skills, tactics and strategies of Basketball is a rewarding experience. The quality of coaching is one of the primary reasons why players either continue to participate in Basketball or give up the game. The coach has significantly more influence upon players than any other official or person connected with basketball.

All coaches are required to be registered with Brisbane Basketball Inc it is totally free and takes less than two minutes to do click here to register.

All coaches need to be accredited. The first step is to find out when accreditation courses are taking place in your region and enrol. Typically new coaches start witha junior Club team whilst they continue to develop their coaching philosophy and build on their coaching skills. Senior coaching positions tend to be advertised through local Association websites, newspapers and other media.

Coaches can become accredited by particpating in Courses and also by maintaining their accreditation by completing the Coach’s Updating Verification Form.

It is important that Basketball coaches maintain standards for the integrity of the sport and the general good of coaches. Visit either Basketball Australia Coaches Code of Ethics or Basketball Queensland Coach Code of Behaviour for details on what all Coaches must adhere to.
