Cara commenced coaching with the Camberwell Dragons in 2013 and has coached in the Under 14 girls program since that time, primarily the GU14.1 team which has qualified for VC for the past 2 seasons.

Cara has also coached the Youth League Women’s team since 2016, only stepping down from that role just prior to the 2022 season.  Her teams made the preliminary finals in both 2017 and 2019, and she was awarded Coach of the Year in the Youth League Women’s competition in 2017. Cara has continued her coaching pathway, having been appointed as an assistant coach with NBL1 Women’s team, the Kilsyth Cobras for the past 2 seasons. 

Cara has always prioritised creating a pathway for the club’s junior players and has placed a big emphasis on making sure her Youth League teams were involving themselves in the junior program (for example having them attend training sessions and games).  Cara has been integral to the success of our junior girls’ program and has been involved in developing many of our current players.

Outside of coaching, Cara has also taken on administrative roles within the Dragons program, including acting as girls program coordinator for a number of years.

In 2022, Cara was awarded the Basketball Victoria Service Award (Bronze – 15+ years) for her services to basketball.  This reflected her contribution to basketball not only at Camberwell but also her long years of dedicated service to the Koonung Comets Basketball Club, as a player, coach, and administrator.

In 2021, Cara was announced as the 2021 Whitehorse Sports Award – Coach of the Year for her many years of coaching at Koonung Comets Basketball Club.
