A guide for first time supercoachers.

NBL SUPERCOACH BASICS & KEY POINTS

  • Select a team to score ‘SuperCoach points’ based on their on-court performances.

  • A coach’s starting five will earn full points for their on-court performances, will bench players will contribute 50% of their total points for the coach’s overall round score.

  • ‘Captains’ of a side will have their score doubled.

  • ‘Vice captains’ can be used when a ‘Captain’ does not play.

  • ‘Trade boosts’ can be used to make more than two changes in a round to a team.

BUILDING YOUR TEAM

  • SuperCoaches are allocated a $2m salary cap to build a team consisting of 10 players. Four guards, four forwards and two centres.

  • Building your team at the start of the season requires a combination of ‘gun’ players with high point-scoring ability and ‘cash cows’ to improve squad value.

  • ‘Cash cows’ are players who perform better than their initial valuation, increasing their own value and giving coaches the option to ‘trade up’ for better performing players.

  • Throughout the 20 round season, coaches will have a total of 42 trades to improve their side as their squad value increases.

  • As some teams will play two games in one round, coaches should consider having more players in their squad for that round (e.g. United, Phoenix & 36ers play two games in round one).
