Learn from the Boomers’ Brains Trust

Ever wondered what Vickerman, McKinlay and Pearlman preach to their players? Well, there’s no need to wonder anymore!

Coinciding with the ‘Boomers in the Burbs’ matches, Basketball Australia is giving coaches the chance to hear from inside the Boomers’ coaching ranks and see them in action in the midst of the FIBA Basketball World Cup qualifiers.

This exclusive experience will allow those who register the opportunity to watch the last 30 minutes of a Boomers training session, before hearing directly from the coaches about the team’s preparation and program.

Melbourne United Head Coach, Dean Vickerman, will lead the Boomers for these two qualifiers, so those who register will hear advice and wisdom from one of Australia’s leading coaches.

With a decorated coaching career spanning more than two decades across three countries, Vickerman has won three NBL Championships as head coach (2015, 2018, 2021), four championships as an assistant coach (2006, 2011, 2012, 2013) and has twice been awarded the Lindsay Gaze Trophy for NBL Coach of The Year.

In addition, participants will also hear from Basketball Australia Centre of Excellence head coach, Robbie McKinlay and Jamie Pearlman of the Adelaide 36ers.

The masterclass session - which has been broken down into four parts - will run from 11:30am – 1:00pm on Saturday 25 February at the State Basketball Centre in Wantirna South in Melbourne.
