ALL E.Bees coaches are volunteers, usually parents, sometimes older siblings, occasionally players from older E.Bees age groups and sometimes friends of players. All our Coaches deserve your support for reasonable decisions and actions and should be respected for their basketball expertise and dedication.
The club is always looking for coaches. Parents, siblings, grand parents or friends are most welcome to apply for coaching positions. Even if you have not
coached before please reach out to a Age Group coordinator and let them know that you would be available to coach a team.
The club can not exist without coaches - why not give it a try.
