Coaching Bio

I am a Syrian National Basketball team player who made the move to Melbourne to play in the NBL1 league. I have had the privilege of learning from and playing with some of the best in the business and I'm excited to have the opportunity to pass along these skills to the next generation of hoopers.

I have been a member of the Syrian national team since 2016 during which time I have played in the World Championships, Asia Men Championship and West Asia Championship. I have since joined the Melbourne Tigers in the NBL1 competition. Throughout my years in the sport, I have taken on a number of coaching roles alongside my playing. I became the manager of my friend's sports academy where I built training programs and the pride I felt as they improved from week-to-week is why I'm so excited to continue my coaching journey. I have over 10 years of coaching experience and I am looking forward to starting this next chapter with PlayBook.

William has a skilfully balanced approach to his coaching of my son and works intuitively to understand the level of entry skills and builds up from there. This approach has empowered my son, who has had amazing progress with his ball skills and dribbles and soon will be ready to play in a team with the right and positive attitude.

My son really enjoyed the session with William. William was patient and encouraging. My son only started basketball this year, but William gave him some great tips.

We could not be more pleased with deciding to choose William to train with our son. He was able to spot exactly what our son needed work on and noticed an improvement immediately. William had a very fun and gentle nature. We will absolutely recommend William and will be booking sessions in the future.
