Horsham Hornets are still searching for a senior men’s head coach ahead of the 2019-20 Country Basketball League season after locking in junior and women’s coaches.
Tony Sleep will take charge of the Lady Hornets this year after previously coaching Horsham Amateur Basketball Association junior squads. Sleep is highly credentialed, with years of experience coaching at junior level, and serves as the association’s director of coaching.
In 2018 he was named Basketball Victoria Country’s male volunteer of the year for his roles as a coach of Horsham’s under-18 and under-12 boys squads, junior director and media liaison.
Coaching junior sides this season will be Jon Fitzgerald and Nicole Lakin for the under-18 boys and girls squads respectively.
Fitzgerald will also serve as an assistant coach for the under-16 boys squad under head coach Scott Benbow, while Lakin will coach the girls under-16 squad.
Owen Hughan and Rebecca McIntyre will coach the under-14 boys and girls squads, while Josh Friend and Cassandra Haskett take over as respective coaches of the under-12 boys and girls squads.
Applications for the men’s head coach position, which has been filled by playing coach Cam Bruce for the past three seasons, will close on Friday.
On its website the association said applicants should have at least a club coaching level accreditation and have a current Working With Children Check.
Application forms are available on the association’s website,, or at the Horsham Basketball Stadium office.
