Our coaches are the backbone of the Club. All are volunteers but the Club pays an honarrium of $200 at the end of the season to recognise their great work. It's a great way to learn more about basketball and have fun passing on your skills to the next wave of IC champions.
We are always looking for motivated and keen coaches who want to be part of junior basketball. Contact the coaches coordinator [email protected] if you are interested in taking on a team.
All coaches and assistant coaches over the age of 18 years, are required to have a Working With Children check and must provide the reference number to the club. Basketball Victoria also requires all those who need a WWC check to sign a declaration. This is now a mandatory requirement.

The Club pays for the cost of the course ,which is usually over $200, as part of our commitment to improving our basketball skills.
