For Coaches

Session Cards

At the end of this guide you will find an additional coaching resource: session cards for each stage of the program. These session cards have been developed by Basketball Australia and are aligned to the national coaching curriculum. In addition to their inclusion in this guide, each local centre also receives these session cards in a digital format so that coaches can print and utilise them on court.

While not entirely prescriptive, it is expected that all Vicinity Centres Aussie Hoops Coaches will deliver their sessions with these session cards in mind to ensure national coaching and delivery consistency.

Regardless of the staged program an Vicinity Centres Aussie Hoops session is delivered for between 45 and 75 minutes and has four fundamental components. How those 45-75 minutes are structured is dependent on the staged program and this can be seen below.

These resources have been designed to assist coaches and primary school teachers with little or no basketball experience as well as instilling a sense of confidence in program delivery across the country. Additionally, it allows parents to train and play with their children and focus on relevant skills outside of the program.
