Cara Jeffers fired up for new challenge

Camberwell District Basketball Association announced today that Cara Jeffers will coach the Camberwell Dragons Big V Championship Women’s team in 2024.

“It is great for our women’s program to have Cara Jeffers return as a senior Dragons coach,” Camberwell Basketball chief executive Ross Wignell said.

“Working in an NBL1 system as an assistant coach for the past two seasons has provided further education and growth, preparing Cara for the challenge ahead in 2024.

“Being entrenched in the Dragons junior program and continuing as the 16.1 Girls head coach, she has first-hand knowledge of the importance we place on player development and pathway opportunity.”

Cara, pictured leading the Under 14.1 Girls last season, said she was “very excited and grateful” to return to the Camberwell senior program as coach of the Champ Women’s team.

“I’m excited to challenge myself in this space after a couple of years assisting in NBL1 and to implement what I’ve learnt to lead the group to a successful year,” she said. “The goal will be to build a group that competes hard, shows pride on court and plays an exciting brand of basketball to inspire our junior athletes.

“To coach at this level with the calibre of players both at Camberwell and across the league is something I’m excited for and I cannot wait to start on court.”
