Coaching Bio

I have played Basketball in the NBA for the Milwaukee Bucks and Denver Nuggets as well as in the NBL for the Brisbane Bullets. Since finishing my playing career, I have spent most of my time coaching people of all ages and abilities. I thoroughly enjoy passing on my love of the game.

I was drafted in 1987, with pick number 31, to the Denver Nuggets. I have also played briefly for the Milwaukee Bucks. I then spent some time playing in Spain and France. In 1990, I started my career playing in the NBL. Between 1990 – 2001 I played for the Brisbane Bullets, Hobart Devils and Cairns Taipans. I was named an NBL All Star three times for the Brisbane Bullets. I began my career as a coach once I finished playing professionally as I still had a huge passion for the game. I have a wide range of experience as a coach of all ages and both females and males. My particular focus is on improving the skills and fitness of players. I love helping to grow the game of Basketball in Australia. I also provide mentoring lectures to my clients, to help them understand the mental side of participating in a sport like Basketball. I am still very active in the game, playing in Masters games both locally and at the World Masters. In February 2018, I was humbled to be inducted in the Hall of Fame by Loyola University of Chicago and was also named to the schools All-Century Team. *All venue bookings are to be made by the client before the session date* Please note: each basketball court has a different court hire fee and you'll be required to pay the court hire fee on arrival.

We had a session with Andre for my 15yo son and it was fantastic. Andre is super friendly and knows how to make people feel comfortable. The session was fast paced and very active. It provided technical instruction a well as a program my son could take home and work on. My son was soaked in sweat by the end which is a sign of a great session! I would definitely recommend a session with Andre - it was awesome.

Andre was fantastic. Our son is only 10. Andre tailored the session in a way that was perfectly targeted to him. The session was well rounded, skills, fitness and mental approach all covered. We would happily go again.

Andre is a fantastic coach and my 12 year old son had the time of his life being coached by him. Andre was very patient and motivating when working with my son, at the same time he also helped to push him a little bit outside of his comfort zone in order to help him improve in both his skills and also his fitness. I would highly recommend Andre to other parents out there who are looking for a quality coach for their child. The session we had with Andre has definitely improved my sons confidence and increased his love of basketball. Thanks again Andre!

Xavier totally enjoyed the session with Andre. Great feedback was given and what Xavier needed to push himself. Courts are excellent! We are locking in for regular sessions.

Andre was a great coach to my son and showing him the fundamentals of basketball. My son had a great time with Andre and learned so much. Andre is a great coach and definitely recommend to anyone.
