What People are Saying

Having known Matt since the first day I arrived in Australia, I have seen him grow and develop his personal brand in the sport of basketball. Matt has the ability to coach on all levels. I have observed him on numerous occasions get the best out of his players. He’s very adaptable in his approach to the game throughout all levels. Always well prepared and aware of his competition, having excellent communication skills and consistently striving to build a collaborative environment. I have watched Matt develop players of all abilities from juniors, building them to state players and then into professionals while maintaining their allegiance long term. He can recognise a players weaknesses and turn them into strengths while continuing to enhance on the skillset they already have inclusive of the utilisation of video analysis. At the forefront is Matt’s dedication and commitment to his team and players. I can wholeheartedly endorse and recommend him for all your Coaching and Development needs.

Ollie started small group sessions and private sessions with Matt after he lost interest in basketball due to team/coach. In the small time Matt had with him, he improved his game tremendously both with skills and focus. Northside up here is one of the biggest/strongest clubs in Qld who produce lots of state players. I know without Matt’s training Ollie would not have made 14.1’s due to the strength/skill of players. He was also picked to play 15A as a 12 year old. I would encourage you all to grab both private and group sessions with Matt if your kids want the success Ollie is now getting and more importantly he is loving every second he is playing. Grab sessions before he books out.
