Coach a Team


Did you know that the Lara Giants is one of the biggest basketball clubs in Geelong with over 30 junior teams & over 250 junior players. None of this would be possible without the hard work & dedication of our coaches.

Right now we have more demand for kids wanting to play than we have coaches available. This winter if the team does not have a coach your kids may not have a team,

If you would like to coach a team this winter we would love to have you as part of our team. Whether you are a returning coach or just a parent keen to help we will help you help our kids to play this great game.

Commitments and duties

There is 1 game and 1 training session per week both of which are usually 1 hour duration. There will probably be 1 coaches meeting per season. Work with the club and team coordinators as the primary contact between the club and the team.

Benefits and assistance

Free LBC club membership for your family. Free coaching courses as available. Generally there would be a level 0 and level 1 course each year.  Assistance will be provided to beginner coaches if requested. All you have to do is ask. Phone or text Jason Aherne on 0417 306 327 for more information or email us at president@laragiants.org.au
