Community Sports Mentoring & Coaching

Community Sports Mentoring and Coaching (CSMC) was set up to support positive engagement and lifelong inclusion of youth in community life through sport and active recreation participation.  Of particular focus is the support of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth, both urban and remote, to provide opportunities for positive growth, skills development and employment opportunities that are currently not available to them through the provision of tailored, sustainable and practical programs in key locations.

The goal of the CSMC program is to reinforce the messages of achieving a good education and the available opportunities after doing so.  Also, we aim to build on knowledge, attitude and behaviours of living a healthy lifestyle.

Areas of Focus

Physical Activity | Nutrition | Harmful Substances | Healthy Relationships | Cultural History & Identity | Leadership | Education and Training


Young Indigenous Basketball Academy


The Young Indigenous Basketball Academy is a skills, mentoring and support program designed to assist in the development of basketball pathways while supporting improvements in educational engagement and outcomes and employment opportunities for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander basketballers. 



The clinics introduce Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth to the game of basketball to increase participation rates and increase their current knowledge, skills and enjoyment of the game.  The clinics provide opportunities for players to be mentored in personal growth in terms of leadership skills, teamwork and confidence and help us achieve our overall goal of reinforcing the importance of a healthy lifestyle and a good education.


Brian Kerle Basketball is working with not-for-profit organisations, government departments and city councils to help give disadvantaged youth and young men and women who are in need of a positive influence in their lives with a program to help build confidence, structure, discipline and enjoyment.   Brian Kerle Basketball is currently working with Queensland Youth Justice and Queensland Youth Detention.

If we can help your organisation working with young men and women individually or in groups, contact Brian Kerle on 0488 690 877.



The CSMC Program is an opportunity to have early and continuous intervention, creating a positive pathway into their adulthood. Community members and key government agencies have requested such a program and a diverse range of community events as they are a reflection of the positive attitudes and changes in their local community.
