2024 QLD State Team Coaching Applications
Basketball Queensland is seeking coaches for the 2024 High Performance Program. They are looking to appoint coaching staff for State Teams (Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches) and Emerging Teams (Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches) based on expressions of interest (EOI) responses.
Being a State Team coach for Queensland offers the opportunity to work with talented young players, fostering their growth on and off the court. It provides networking opportunities with other experienced coaches, contributes to basketball development in the region, and grants access to valuable resources and support. The role can be a steppingstone to higher-level coaching positions, making a meaningful impact on the sport while representing the pride of the state.
To streamline the process, a single EOI will be considered for all age and gender groups. However, if there are specific positions a coach wouldn't accept, they can mention it in their application (e.g. not available for a certain age group or only willing to coach a specific gender).
The exact tournament dates and locations are yet to be confirmed, but as a rough guide:
- Emerging teams will likely compete in late January (approximately 5 days including travel).
- U20's will have three weekend training camps, starting from mid-February.
- U18's will have two weekly trainings during Term 1, starting from mid-April.
- U16's will have two weekly trainings during Term 2, starting in early July.
All Nationals last approximately 10 days, including travel, and the Emerging program lasts about 5 days, including travel. Keep in mind that these dates are subject to change and should only serve as a rough guide.
Applications for all positions close Friday 18th of August 2023.
