The Mildura Heat are excited to announce their head coaching staff for the 2019 Big V season.

Division One Women

We are excited to announce the re-signing of the 2018 Big V Coach of the Year James Madigan to our women’s program. James has coached this team for the past two seasons and been an integral part of our ‘Senior Heat’ programs since returning from coaching the 2009 Albury/Wodonga Bandits. James has extensive coaching knowledge winning championships in 2010 and 2012 with the Heat.

Division Two Men

We are excited to announce the signing of Mahaela Jackson as Head Coach of our Senior Men’s program. Mahaela has coached Big V Division One Women at both Hawthorn and Werribee, and is currently coaching in our Premier Men’s competition. Mahaela is also a part of our Junior representative program and State Development Program.


Mildura Basketball are very excited with the appointments of James and Mahaela and believe they will continue to raise the standards with our current core group of players, along with plenty of new opportunities including those looking to progress from juniors to senior basketball and provide pathways for all players across the Heat programs.
