Australian Basketball Legend CJ Bruton will run the first ever Jarvis Ford Coach the Coaches clinics on behalf of ACBA.
Bruton is an Australian basketball icon, having played 516 games in the NBL. He was a 6x time championship player (2x Sydney Kings, 1x Brisbane Bullets, 3x New Zealand). CJ has won multiple All-NBL team awards and also was the 2012 NBL Grand Final MVP.
CJ also played for the boomers in the 2004 and 2008 Olympic games- going up against some of the games’ greats in Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Dwayne Wade and Tim Duncan- just to name a few!
His coaching career has included 5 years as an Assistant Coach for the Brisbane Bullets and most recently was the Adelaide 36’ers Head Coach.
CJ has an evident passion for helping junior, grassroots development- as he has spent a lot of time in this space. Bruton believes helping coaches is fundamental for the game of basketball to keep growing. “When I was growing up and playing, some of my first coaches were so impactful to me- both on and off the court- I know how important and vital the role of a coach is in a young player’s journey”- said CJ.
Jarvis Ford is generously supporting these clinics, which will be free for ACBA club coaches. Jarvis Ford have been huge supporters of ACBA’s Ford Aussie Hoops Programs and also the association competition. We cannot thank them enough for their support in allowing us to provide such amazing opportunities for coaches to learn from esteemed coaches such as CJ Bruton!
There will be 2x 90-minute sessions at the Arc Campbelltown. Both sessions will feature on court and meeting room, workshop components. There will also be online content provided to coaches as part of the coach development program to assist them beyond the session.
The first session will be targeted at Aussie Hoops, Under 8 and Under 10 coaches, with a focal point being on the beginner fundamentals.

The second session will be for Under 12 and up coaches, with somewhat of a more advanced theme for coaches. Coaches are welcome to attend both if they so wish.
Jarvis Ford’s Coach the Coaches sessions will be on June 30th, 9am-1030am and 11am-1230pm.
