We deeply value and recognise the significant time and effort invested by our volunteer coaches in ensuring the successful delivery of our program. The Ford Aussie Hoops Coach of the Year award aims to acknowledge those coaches who are committed to developing basketball skills and instilling enthusiasm in young hoopers who are engaged in the program.

The winning coach will receive a Ford Aussie Hoops Coaching Prize Pack valued at $500 and a Coaching Development opportunity in their home state with a Basketball Australia Coach Mentor.
