Wallan Panthers announce 2018 senior men's head coach


As we continue to give all our support to the Womens team in their Grand Final endeavours, it is with great pleasure that we can announce Carey Paps as the 2018 Mens Big V Wallan Panthers coach.

A true gentlemen of the game, Paps brings well over 350 games of experience to the club across Championship, Div1 and Div2 levels. He has coached both men’s and women’s basketball at a number of clubs including Coburg, Altona, Keilor, Bulleen, Melton, and Whittlesea.

Incredibly his resume includes both a Mens Div1 and a Womens Div2 championship.

With Paps all ready to come on board we can start planning for next season very early. Interested players can expect to hear more about training times etc in September.

The Association, with the deepest respect, would like to thank Coach Dale Platek for his guidance and support this past 12 months. He volunteered his time to help us through our first season and led the men through an outstanding first season. His off court candour and life stories were classical. We wish he and Jan the greatest of enjoyment in their upcoming travels .... Thanks 'Champ'! Look forward to seeing you around the place.
