WHAT IS SWOOSH TRAINING.png
Swoosh (1)_edited.JPG

Swoosh Training was an idea started in 2017 by founder Coach Joe Reddish whilst still pursing a playing career in college (USA) and on the side working with various teammates & youth players. Coach Joe returned to New Zealand in 2018, Swoosh was then established in Taranaki while he pursed a NZNBL career. The main focus at the time was individual player development which grew to become an Academy Program by 2019.

Joe was then joined by Coach Samara who moved from Australia to be a part of Swoosh Training as the demand for coaching expanded and more programs were added. Swoosh Training continued to grow, consulting with local clubs & associations to facilitate programs/initiatives.

In 2020 Coach Joe had an opportunity to play NZNBL in his hometown for the Franklin Bulls, this gave Samara Head Coach responsibilities of Swoosh Training. In 2021 Joe retired early to purse coaching opportunities which resulted in an Assistant Coach role with the Bulls.

2022: Coach Sam and Coach Joe will be based in Franklin working with
Franklin Basketball Association. Sam has recently been assigned to her new role as 'Clubs and Schools Development Officer' and Joe as 'Coach Development Officer'.

We are very excited for this next chapter for us and for Swoosh and cant wait to continue to grow the game and provide development opportunities for players all across New Zealand.
