Great pick ups in 16 Boys.

Will the last one at North please turn out the lights?

don't think too many coaches have been announced yet - be better left until after the current season - although it would be nice to know before trials - but I'm sure the club would tell you at trials

Not many female coaches in that lineup.
Guess that makes 16boys coach rumours true and official.

What happened to SA Country coach Hayden Sewell @ Mavs? He was boys coach of the year?

761 he's on Facebook, send him a message and ask him if you’re that concerned.

sixties 3 of the 10 Div 1 ooaches are female at Forestville. I'd suggest not many clubs if any will beat that. Eastern have 2. 30/70 is a good result and actually what the ASC says clubs should be aiming for in regards to participation numbers by sex.

Who cares if it's 100% male or female, put the best candidate in the position.

^^ funny how when you do it like that, the 'best candidate' is almost always male

In no way do I believe either Forestville or Eastern did anything but appoint the best coaches it could.

In no way do I believe either club (in the words of Ronda Rousey) "do something nice for the ladies"

Both #789 & #823 are nothing but sexist trolls and should be ignored in this thread. As too should sixtiesrockstar's baseless dig.

^^ how are either of the posts you mention sexist? Your RR quote makes no sense btw

Unless we know the participation rates of females in coaching, and then further look into if they actually want to progress to higher grades, then it's hard. Of course there is definitely sexism if similar qualified candidates apply, the male would normally get it, I'm male btw.
But it's nearly similar to actual player participants in basketball, males significantly outnumber females. Club's would have to be proactive in getting females to coach and also give them more skills, such as maybe opening up more assistant roles in higher divisions.
I'm sure the same thing occurs in netball where male coaches are in the minority.

^^ in Vic female participation is 32%, this is not reflected in leadership roles, eg coaching.

You might be surprised at the amount of men coaching netball considering it's a mostly female sport

I swear we have this every year!
In terms of female coaching participation BSA recently held a club coaching course 11 men and 1 woman attended!
When they did the community coaching course 13 men and 3 women.
In terms of "credited" coaches, men probably outweighs women.
I'm also sure the last year Ingham was in charge he ran a couple women only coaching clinics and they didn’t get more than 5-6 people rock up

^^ Think about when those clinics are run. Do one on a weekday during the day, or via zoom and see if the turnout changes

To the issue of women coaching.
Personally I believe it would be beneficial to have more women coaching.

Unfortunately in most circumstances they just do not put themselves forward.

Clubs are always looking for good coaches.

So ladies be the agent of change. Volunteer, do a coaches course, get involved, start by being an assistant coach, apply for the positions.

Stop thinking the problem is a guy who put his hand up and helped out, the problem is you didn't.

The Tucker Centre is a great place to find quality (well researched) information on this topic, if you are actually interested in gender equality. This is a link to a PDF titled 'Shifting the Narrative about Women Sport Coaches'. Hope it helps

"Clubs, Basketball SA and indeed most of the junior coaches are readily accessible to voice complaints or issues in a more professional, private and appropriate manner than publicly on this forum."

No they are not. If they were this forum wouldn't have 2/3 of its posts. The fact this forum still is up is proof this claim is rubbish.

Reply #874233 | Report this post

Yes they are.

Ring up or email Basketball SA. Contact club JDO's or Presidents via mobile or email.

Email the coaches or private message the coach via social media direct.

The fact 2/3s of these complaints occur anonymously on this forum is because people are too gutless to put their names to complaints and enjoy being negative without consequence.

2/3s of such complaints are by people with an agenda and/or personal grudge. If their name was attached then comments could be appropriately analysed.

Think about who are most likely to complain about a junior volunteer coach (apart from the obvious sad individual) - someone at the coach’s club (ie didn’t get picked for div 1) or someone at another club who wouldn’t know first thing about the particular coach and either has a personal grudge or just trying to discredit them for competitive advantage.

If you are using this forum for a proper check and balance then put full name and email address to the complaint.

Mass thread pruning has taken place. If you want to get yourself in legal hot water, do it somewhere else where the risk doesn't end up with me.
