Under-18 State Team Staff Announced

BASKETBALL Victoria is proud to announce the 2019 Under-18 and Kevin Coombs Cup State Team Staff.

Basketball Victoria’s Under-18 State Team Staff will feature one new head coach in Sharon Denham for 2019. Joining her in the Under-18 Coaching Staff will be returning coaches Darren Perry, Lucas Allen and Reece Potter.

Perry’s coaching resume is exceptional, due to winning a number of Australian Junior Championships and guided elite athletes through to the international ranks. He is also the current Australian Emus head coach, taking a monumental victory in Bangkok to claim the Under-18 Asia Cup in August.

Allen and Potter started their time as Under-18 head coaches in 2018, as Potter’s Under-18 Victoria Metro Women claimed the championship in Geelong.

Denham takes the next step in the Under-18 Victoria Country Women’s program having previously served as an assistant coach including the 2017 championship winning campaign.

“Sharon Denham has showcased her skills as a under-18 women’s assistant coach and previously as under-16 women’s head coach,” Basketball Victoria Basketball Operations Manager Grant Wallace said. “We’re looking forward to her taking the step up next year to the head coaching ranks.

“With Denham returning to the ranks alongside Perry, Potter and Allen, we have some very talented coaches guiding our sides in Townsville next year.”
