Basketball New Zealand has announced the schedule of coaching clinics around New Zealand that will be delivered by Sky Sport Tall Ferns Head Coach, Guy Molloy. We will be hosting one of these clinics:
Friday 14 May | CHRISTCHURCH
5pm, Hillview Christian School, 150 Wilsons Road, St. Martins.
The key topics that will be covered include:
Eleven sessions will be delivered throughout the country in May, free for any basketball coaches to attend.
Molloy is a highly experienced and respected international coach hailing from Melbourne. Well known for his career in the WNBL in Australia, Molloy is a two-time WNBL Coach of the Year award winner (1995 and 2014). He has coached the Canberra Capitals, Perth breakers and Melbourne Boomers which rostered five Tall Ferns this past season. He’s also coached in the ANBL, junior Australian teams, plus served as Assistant Coach to the Australian Opals from 1989 to 1994.
Since 2017, Molloy has been part of the Tall Ferns camp, which was made official in 2018 when Molloy stepped into the head coaching role. He immediately guided the team to a celebrated Bronze Medal at the Commonwealth Games.
Molloy arrived in New Zealand last Monday and says he is thrilled to be back in New Zealand.
“I’m really excited to be here. I’m especially looking forward to these clinics and sharing some coaching philosophies and influences that have helped me over the years. I hope to share some lessons on what I’ve found great to motivate and uplifts players, and how great coaching can transcend sport.
“Basketball is really gathering steam in New Zealand and, with that, the community is looking for opportunities to increase their knowledge. If I can offer something that coaches will find useful to take back to their teams and players, I’m only too happy to help,” says Molloy.
Basketball New Zealand’s Head of High Performance Leonard King, who will help deliver the clinics, says the sessions will be aimed at coaches of all levels, but there will be a particular focus on coaches at the representative and high school levels.
“This is a chance for coaches to break the cycle of doing what they’ve always done. Guy is a brilliant basketball mind, and I think any basketball coach who attends will improve their coaching and be reminded about the power of coaching,” says King.
