Basketball Victoria would like to welcome Adam Tarr and David Peters as our latest High-Performance Hub Lead Coaches.
A familiar face within Bendigo’s basketball community and country Victorian basketball, Adam Tarr will lead the High-Performance Hub based at Bendigo Stadium. Adam joins Basketball Victoria with considerable experience in coaching across various programs within the Victorian pathway and state representative teams. He has held several management positions in associations in regional Victoria and has commenced work to prepare for our High–Performance program in 2021.
David Peters will lead our High-Performance Program based out of Casey Stadium. Previously the Director of Academies for Chase Basketball, lead Assistant Coach for the Melbourne Tigers NBL1 Men’s team and Head Coach of the Melbourne Tigers Under-18 Boys team, as well as assisting coaches at Melbourne United, David will work across Basketball Victoria and Casey Basketball Association in an exciting dual role between the two organisations. David has commenced work with Casey Basketball Association and will be ready to prepare for BVs High Performance program from mid-January.
Basketball Victoria’s General Manager – High Performance and Pathways Grant Wallace said Tarr and Peters’ joining the organisation will be a great addition to the Hubs program.
“We had a number of great candidates for these roles and feel fortunate to have such an elite pool of coaches wanting to join our High-Performance Hubs,” Wallace said. “David and Adam are experienced coaches and mentors – their efforts will ensure our Hubs at Casey and Bendigo continue to excel as part of this program.
“We are excited to see our Hubs and all High-Performance pathway programs recommence now and into 2021 after the challenging year we’ve all just had.”
Basketball Victoria’s 10 High Performance Hubs – located at Ballarat, Bendigo, Broadmeadows, Casey, Geelong, MSAC, State Basketball Centre, Shepparton, Traralgon and Wyndham – are part of a $5m investment into the Victorian high-performance basketball pathways and infrastructure by the Victorian Government as part of the 2019/20 Victorian State Budget.
