Coaches Selection Policy and Process

The Wantirna Wasps Basketball Club adheres to any local laws which include that Coaches have current Working With Children Checks.

Each season, any person wanting to coach a Wasps Basketball team must complete the Coaches Application form for consideration by the Boys and Girls Coordinators.

This form is made available at each season registration session as well as on-line.  Where forms are printed from the website they must be completed and provided to the Boys or Girls Coordinators prior to the end of the player registration week for the season the coaching appointment is sought.
