COACH MATT

FOUNDER

Coach Matt has been a basketball coach for 11 years, and has a passion for getting children to fall in love with the sport at a grass roots level. Matt's coaching style is enthusiastic and energetic, which results in engagement and high levels of enjoyment from the children in his sports sessions.

"Working with Knights Basketball, I coached teams to title-winning seasons in the Surrey under 10 CVL, and led an under 11 girls team to go undefeated in the first part of a mixed under 12 league."

Coach Matt's plan going forward for Growth Academy and Dragons Basketball is to become a club that is inclusive for all children, no matter what their ability is, and for everyone to be able to gain confidence and feel like they belong.

Matt's favourite NBA player is the late Kobe Bryant, followed closely by Kyrie Irving, Luca Doncic and Lebron James.

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you're carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly, be kind, be weird. There's no time for anything else
