Why I Coach #4 Why I Coach #4 Why I Coach #4

They work the sidelines on a Friday night and put in the hours to develop our junior Camberwell Dragons teams, but what inspires our coaches to do what they do?

We've put that question to them and the responses are rolling in. In this, the fourth instalment of our Why I Coach series, we caught up with Duncan Palmer, head coach of Camberwell Dragons 14.4 Girls. This is his story:

"I coach for several reasons. I love watching players improve. Seeing them apply skills from training in a game and the smiles on their faces when it works is probably the number one reason I coach.

"I also like seeing players grow both as basketballers and as people. Seeing players who I have coached continue in Big V, coaching, committee and as parents at Dragons is awesome, but even meeting them in the community or on social media and seeing where their life takes them is a great experience.

"I love being part of the community that is Camberwell Dragons; from parents, to committee, fellow coaches, and referees, it is fantastic to be part of an amazing club.

"Last but not at all least, I am lucky enough for the past few seasons to have coached my daughter. She and a few of her teammates probably need a break from me now, but I count myself fortunate to have had that experience."

• Duncan Palmer is head coach of Camberwell Dragons 14.4 Girls.
