Dunkers encourages players who take an interest in coaching to start taking steps towards coaching a team of their own. We have a couple of pathways to help players get to the point where they’re capable of coaching confidently.
JUNIOR COACH – An U18 Coach having completed necessary steps to train a team of their own under the supervision of an adult. Must be 15 and in Year 9 at a minimum.
FUTURE DUNKERS ASSISTANT COACH – An U18 player assisting with a well planned prep – grade 2 beginner program who is perhaps looking to take on a team of their own in the future. Must be in Year 8 at a minimum.
SKILLS TRAINER – Assists a Dunkers Coach in coaching, including session planning, demonstrating skills, encouraging and assisting players in drills. Must be in Year 8 at a minimum.
**All U18 volunteers must get permission from the club before registering as a coach on PlayHQ, or starting to help in any capacity. This will help ensure that we are meeting our legal obligations with our governing bodies.
