Junior District- I believe that Peter Ali is Level 3.
Not too many of these around

Given that he's president of the World Association of Basketball Coaches, you'd have to include Patrick Hunt

Level 3 is the highest unless you are a national senior coach

level 3 is the highest...

but can no longer be achieved within australia...

currently level two is the highest you can currently gain within Australia.

so only those coaches who already attainted their level 3 before these recent changes will be the highest qualified level 3 coaches in Australia.

The way Marty Clarke coaches I would say he is pretty "high"

Will the responses to the OP assist Basketball Australia in the preparation of short list of potential Boomer coaches for Rio 2016?

Or is this for a possible head coaching position of a NBL team?

Anonymous- Dean Kinsman terrible!!
What a " load of crock" have you ever played the game let alone played under DK.
Ask some of the most dedicated and decorated players both Juniors or Seniors in several states and they would argue the opposite!!
His successful coaching career and record at International level remain the facts and counters your ridiculous comment.

i have been coaching a long time - the secret to the well credentialed coaches - is they never take on a bad team.

Will always walk away from a dud group.
