Basketball legend in town
Story by Angelo Robinson, Photography by Ben Hopkinson
On Sunday 3 December 2017 Kenny McFadden was in the district.
His credentials are unquestioned:
- Exchequer Saints Player
- Hoop Club Founder with Coach Angelo Robinson & Coach Terry Stallworth
- Director of Coaching Hoop Club Wellington & New Zealand Basketball Academy
- former Basketball New Zealand Jnr Tall Blacks Coach
- Coach and Mentor to Oklahoma NBA Star Steve Adams.
He came to Hoop Club Kapiti to work with our Hoop Club players and coaches in the middle and last Hoop Club sessions: 8 to 10 year olds 10.30 to 11.30am, 11 to 13 year olds 11.30 to 12.30pm.
A fun learning experience!
This was a great opportunity and experience for our players and coaches to learn some new skills and drills to add to the training the players get every Sunday at Hoop Club.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed working with Kenny on Sunday, it was a fun atmosphere and everyone certainly learnt a lot.
It was wonderful to see our players and coaches working with one of New Zealand’s great coaches.
