GB Basketball appointing assistant coaches, physios, S&C coaches for Youth Euros

The British Basketball Federation (BBF) is recruiting assistant coaches, physiotherapists and strength and conditioning coaches for its Great Britain teams ahead of the 2023 FIBA European Youth Championships.  

GB male and female U16, U18 and U20 teams will take part in the tournaments next summer. 

As part of plans for improved support standards and governance for the teams, a prospectus has been drawn up to illustrate the BBF’s ambitions and approach to delivering the programmes.  

It outlines roles, standards, values and behaviours for the BBF and the Home Country Associations and players, coaches and staff, as well as programme delivery objectives and milestones. 

It can be read HERE. 

The recruitment of coaches and staff and the running of the programmes will be undertaken by the HCAs - Basketball England, Basketball Scotland and Basketball Wales – on behalf of the BBF. The application process for head coaches and team managers has already taken place. 

Chris Grant, chair of the BBF, said: 

“We see the 2023 European Youth Championships as a key stepping stone as we seek to elevate the performance of GB Basketball, both on and off the court.  

“We are very clear that we want to ensure the highest standards in terms of the experience that the young athletes will have, and are taking into account the learning from the Anne Whyte review and other sources in setting out our arrangements. 

“Also, very importantly, we are working to ensure that the families of selected players are not put in the position of being asked to make a financial contribution towards the players’ participation.” 

How to apply 

Applicants should apply for the role (assistant coach, physio, S&C coach) rather than for placement with a specific team and have the right to work in the UK. 

Applicants who held positions for the 2022 tournaments will be considered. 

The deadline for all applications is 17 March. Apply to [email protected] with a covering note and CV.
