Werribee Basketball is passionate about supporting developing the coaches of our affiliated domestic clubs and our representative program. We are supportive and committed to seeing coaches at all levels get the best out of themselves and their players.
WBA Coach Education Clinics
Werribee Basketball runs a number of FREE Coach Education sessions open for all coaches to attend. This is an opportunity to expose our coaches to high level, professional coaches. In 2017, Werribee Basketball hosted:
Liam Flynn (current professional basketball coach in Germany, former NBL assistant coach with Townsville & Adelaide). For a copy of Liam’s clinic, contact Player & Coach Development Manager, Reece Potter.
Paul Goriss (current Australian Opals Assistant Coach & Canberra Capitals WNBL Head Coach). Please see below for a copy of Coach Goriss’ clinic:

Currently, the Domestic Coaching Lead roles are being filled by our US Imports (Konor Kulas, Bryan Nagy & Alyssa Bennett). Clubs must book the Domestic Coaching Leads through the Player & Coach Development Manager.
- Coach Education Clinics for Clubs
The WBA also offers clubs the opportunity for our experienced coach educators to run FREE coaching clinics throughout the year. Clubs are welcome to request 1 or 2 free clinics throughout the year from the WBA.
- Resource sharing & development of WBA Resource Library for Coaches
The WBA is committed to providing domestic coaches with easy to access resources that can help them get the best out of their team. For more from the resource library, CLICK HERE
Coach Accreditation for Domestic Clubs
Werribee Basketball is extremely lucky to have a number of qualified & accredited coach educated within the Association. If clubs wish to run their own Club (Level One) coach accreditation courses, the WBA can schedule around what times/venues work best for the club and run the Basketball Victoria Accredited courses specifically for your club. The only stipulation from the WBA & BV is that there must be a minimum of 10 coaches to run a course. If your club does not quite have 10 coaches, you may combine with another club to meet the quota.
