as an outsider these seem to be the only ones that have been released via the clubs social media. Most should filter through over August. Important decisions for a club to get the right people.

what about other grades ? majority of the comp is grades lower than Div 1. Yet that is just shrugged off by clubs and great fanfare with Div 1 coaches - see how they exist without their lower graded teams.

I guess the piont is here that traditionally Division 1 coaches will direct the age group as a squad. The program should filter through to lower grades.

Sorry- but if I wanted to settle for the bad then I would just take my children to the nearest domestic competition/league for less than 10% of the price of district clubs.

It amazes me that clubs still rely on volunteer coaching models.

Pay the coaches and treat the service right, and then we can cut a lot of the bad.

Quality coaching--
Your idea sounds so simple but who pays?
Poor mum and dad already pay heaps for (club)fees which cover rego, noms, court hire etc, plus buy uniforms and associated clothing, then travel between Gawler, Mt Barker and Morphett Vale for the pleasure to pay for the family to watch their child play.

Hanging Around and others - Agree that it's difficult to implement, costs of the sport are huge. But there is some simple low hanging fruit, starting with senior programs.

Good on North + any other clubs for announcing all coaches / assistant coaches or any that are prepared to say - yet to be appointed (not just the emphasis on Div 1, everyone is important. For every Div 1 team there is usually 1-3 full fee paying lower graded teams.

Southern pay something like $100 per season.

Sturt pay $500 for a year.

Good initiative I think! And all coaches of district teams paid equally.

Low Hanging Fruit??
Went to Bunnings Garden area on weekend
and they said that they were out of money trees.
Am aware of some clubs who provide reduced fees for children if a parent coaches at the club, but don't think that too many people who love the game would 'negotiate' with the club, or hold them to ransom over $250 or $500.
If they are in it for the money, priorities are certainly in wrong place

Hanging Around - Seems I won't be changing your opinion, but I will try to explain the context.

Some clubs spend 10s of thousands on dollars on Premier League teams chasing titles, while parents who pay $100s of dollars a year wonder why they have to have a parent coach a team. Meanwhile committed coaches who put in hours upon hours a week quit as they have to look after their career.

Premier League programs make nothing for clubs. They are a drain. Imagine the cost of getting an import, match payments plus car, housing, revenue from camps. It all adds up.

Junior programs are the bread and butter of clubs. Parents pay for a service, and want good coaching.

We aren't talking about people becoming rich, we are talking about keeping good coaches in clubs and providing a service to parents paying a lot of money.

Quality Coaching, I think you've just said what everyone on the outside solely involved in junior basketball thinks. But I don't know that's completely accurate.

PL and Senior competitions are very important to a Club. Home games can become club events for all members, past players and families. They can be used to generate local interest from potential new families, local councils etc.
Secondly what does a junior have to aspire for if not a Senior playing position somewhere. While many will aim much higher, the reality is that Premier League for most is the best level of senior competition they can realistically achieve.

If Clubs invested no money into the PL programs the League would cease to exist. What then for the current juniors? What long term goals can they set for their playing careers?

A good club can fund Senior programs from sponsorship, Senior and YL programs as well as door, canteen, bar and fundraising efforts at Home games. As a result they possibly could draw $0 from their Junior Program.

Maybe you need to check your club's structure to find out where your money is going if you're so concerns your junior fees are paying for 10s of thousands spent on PL players.

Nothing wrong with a senior team playing in their state league. I think what all of these types of leagues need to have a look at is having a zero import rule. This will increase numbers for juniors to come through. Do we really need imports at the state league level?

It's a great conversation
I like premier league and get to a few games with the family - home games only. Whilst we like to watch winners, I would prefer to see locally grown talent -only. Even better if the local has achieved great things with their basketball talent, and so do my kids. They know who theses players are.
Unfortunately, if your club has failed to develop good programs, any talent you think you might have in your junior ranks will go searching for the best coaches. It is happening all the time, and,generally, it's not the successful club chasing the talent, they just have the best environments to attract good coaches. It's a vicious cycle.
Get good coaches, the talent will stay, then you will enjoy these kids / adults playing at the highest level at your club. Don't blame the "big" clubs. They are just doing it better - that's how they got big.

#645401 - I appreciate what you are saying and for context I have been on the inside of basketball clubs, one way or the other for twenty plus years. Variety of positions.

Investing no money would be extreme, and wasn't quite what I suggested.

It's an interesting conversation never the less. I don't think I have more to add.

401, junior success will flow into PL. You will have guys that had such a good junior experience they are willing to put back. Some clubs with phenomenal, world class junior development focus on outcomes for their juniors MUCH, MUCH higher than premier league. This enables them to focus on using junior programs to build future elite professionals on the court, on the sidelines or outside of basketball in other careers.

^ The post above sucks. I have nothing to do with Woodville but i see them offering free registration to encourage young girls to come and join their program, that's just awesome in my opinion so making fun of their efforts to build their program bites.

Plenty of teams haven't announced their coaching lines ups.

anon how is it awesome?

Clubs charge fees to cover costs. Who will pay for these girls to train, nominate, register?

Why Girls and not Boys? Why Under 12s and not all age groups? How is this fair to families that have been at Woodville for a long time?

Once the summer season is over and they all get a bill to play Winter, how many will continue to play?

Short term action that will just make it look like Woodville are better but in the end do more harm.

are Woodville now in a position to fully fund this initiative?

or are BSA once again coming to the rescue?

I agree it's a fantastic short term gesture, but very few Clubs would have the $$ to fund it.

I don't know how they are funding it, and i am sure they will organise a payment plan for winter or the year after for kids who will find it hard, i hope they have thought about it in a long term sense.

Girls not boys as their boys program is strong enough and they do not have enough girls to enter 1 - 2 teams right now i don't think.

Attracting girls to have a go in the first place will in my opinion result in many of those girls falling in love with the game and the parents getting their head around it which is better than doing nothing.

On the weekend I was told Norwood were still looking for a few coaches (not Div 1) and was also told of a Div 3 parent whose team didn't have a coach that they should force the club to forfeit until they had one to punish it financially for not getting coaching staff organised and trying to make parents coach....

Lol, what club isn't looking for coaches at this point? I doubt any club has their coaching line-up completed 100%.

It's a volunteer role people. Not a professional service with KPIs and people knocking down the door to coach.

I guess if someone wants to forfeit Norwood could just kick the kid out and bring in other kids. Tough to punish the kids due to the unrealistic expectations of parents but probably only solution.

Comments above are clumsily worded however not having a coach for the lower DIVs is common across the board of course. The way the flames handle it is the difference.

The CD doesn't directly ask parents to coach or communicate the team may not have one organised yet, just waits for parents to get stressed or worried and a mum or dad to come to the rescue.

other clubs ASK parents who have enough skill or desire to coach - the flames force it by way of offering nothing else including offering up zero communication.
