WHAT IS SWOOSH TRAINING-4.png

New roles same goals for Swoosh Training coaches

 

After three years operating in the Taranaki community Swoosh Training and its coaches will be pursuing new opportunities outside the region in 2022.

Since 2018 Swoosh Training has been involved within the region working alongside local Clubs and Associations to help facilitate programs/initiatives. 

 

Along with successfully working alongside local organisations the Swoosh Training Academy programs also helped grow & develop new wave’s of young basketball talent within the region. Since 2020 coach Samara Funnell has be the lead coach within the region while coach Joe Reddish pursued NZNBL opportunities.

During this time Sam oversaw all Swoosh Training academy programs along with various small group sessions, regional rep teams and day to day Hawera basketball operations.

 

“Coach Sam totally embodies the Development Never stops philosophy. Her development as a coach over the last few years has lead to multiple opportunities. From Involvement within NZ National programs, a prestigious internship with Basketball Immersion to even developing interest from NZNBL programs. It is no surprise that other regions have noticed her” ~ Joe Reddish founder/director of Swoosh Training

Sam will play a big role in helping Franklin continue to build our Club infrastructure but we are most excited about her building the women and girls side of the game” FBA GM Jamie Reddish

This move has also triggered an exciting new era for Swoosh Training. With the academies no longer operating the team will focus on key areas such as off season training, online resources and greater focus on Nation wide Camps to further assist in the development of basketball across NZ. 

"I am and will forever be thankful for my time in Taranaki and the journey I was on with my basketball coaching and Swoosh Training. New opportunities have arisen and I feel happy to follow our mantra of development and continue to do so myself by exploring this new opportunity and growing as a coach in all areas I can. I am looking forward to how this helps us all get better together" - Samara Funnell player development Swoosh Training.
