Coaching Bio

I am a guard for the Sydney Kings and I have played in the NBL for 10 years. I pride myself on my work ethic, competitiveness and basketball IQ. I have recently became a mentor coach within the GPS school basketball system (Sydney). I love sharing my knowledge of the game and impacting players of all ages and skill levels who share the same love for basketball as I do.

*I am currently unavailable for coaching - expecting to return at the end of the NBL 24 season* I grew up in Horsham, Victoria. After finishing high school I started my professional career with the Cairns Taipans. Over a span of 10 years I have accumulated over 200 NBL games and I have now found a home in Sydney with the Sydney Kings. During this time I represented Australia at the World University Games in 2015 and in 2017 was named the NBL1 League MVP. Highlights of my career have been reaching the NBL Grand Final series twice and also being part of the NBLxNBA games and playing against the Phoenix Suns. I'm open to coaching at additional locations so don't hesitate to send me a message on PlayBook if you have somewhere in mind!
* I'm currently unavailable for coaching, I expect to return on Friday the 27th of December. Please join my waitlist if you'd like to train together when I return. *

Christie - 25-08-2023

Shaun was awesome! He had so many great games for the kids and they all really listened to him. We would definitely get him again, his drills were great, he quickly picked up where the kids were at with their skill level and gave us some great ideas that we can take into the training sessions. Worth every cent and more!

The boys had a great experience with Shaun. He did a series of training drills that they had not done previously. They enjoyed the session and felt that they could continue the drills at home to improve their basketball. Going to book another session.
