Australian Gems coach David Herbert to lead Miners women in 2022


 The  coach of the under-18 national team will head up the Ballarat Miners’ senior women’s team next season.

The club has appointed David Herbert at the helm, who was the Australian Gems to a silver medal at the 2021 world championships.

He says he can’t wait to get started.

“I am very proud to fill coaching the role after such an amazing club legend Eric Hayes decided to step away.  I have always admired Eric and hope he continues in some way with a club he has helped build and grow over many years," he said.

“The role is an exciting one for me, the infrastructure that Ballarat has put in place, new 3000 seat stadium, gymnasium, on site Strength and Conditioning staff and Physiotherapy, along with the vision that CEO, Nevile Ivey and the Ballarat Miners board have will see Basketball grow and develop in the region.”
