As a basketball coach, you will often form the first lasting impression that participants and their families have with our game.
Basketball throughout Australia relies on dedicated volunteers to teach people how to play the game and compete. We recognise there is a need to support these volunteers with high quality, consistent, accessible training. This is fundamental to the development of players, coaches, pathways in sport and of the game in Australia.
Whether you are coaching a team of beginners who are just learning to love the sport or a national team, we hope you enjoy coaching Everyone’s Game.
Basketball Australia (BA) NEW Coaching NCAS
BA and each of the states and territories have been working on the development of a new National Coaching Curriculum.

> Make learning more convenient to access
> Better support volunteers
> Recognise, support and accredit more of the volunteers fulfilling a coaching role within Australia Basketball
> Modernise how we teach – moving to competency-based learning
> Better support volunteers and associations
