Volunteer to

become a coach

We have a wide range of coaching opportunities from our junior programs through to our senior programs.

If you love basketball and love to coach, you can start by coaching your child’s club team then progress on to coaching at junior representative level, state level and even further.

Volunteering as a coach is an extremely rewarding experience, building and shaping our young players and watching them grow into successful and well rounded players and team mates. Our volunteer coaching staff are an integral part of our junior and senior development process.

We are always looking for the best people to coach our teams. Being a coach is an extremely rewarding experience helping to shape young lives. You don’t need experience as our ‘coach the coach’ program will ensure you know what you’re doing. RipCity Basketball has a wide variety of coaching opportunities from junior club through to our senior programs. ​

Coaching at UniSC RipCity Basketball is a vital aspect of our junior development which we rely on a large group of volunteer coaches throughout our club system. Want to become a coach and be a positive impact for our junior athletes? Mums and Dads of our players are most welcome.
