Tony is a basketball lifer. Following a not so stellar playing career in St. John’s and Gander, he focussed on refereeing for over 20 years, until his children started growing up, when he turned his attention to coaching minor basketball.
In recent years, Tony has coached with Steve Nash Youth Basketball, Junior NBA, Swilers Club, MacDonald Drive Junior High School Teams, and now St. Anthony Basketball’s Club and Skill Development Programs. Tony has been coaching minor basketball for 15 years and counting, and believes it’s a coaches job to teach his players to love the game, learn to play it the correct way, and play it for life for fun at every level.
Tony graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Memorial University in the old days. In recent years, to further his passion for coaching he has completed the following NCCP Basketball Coaching Courses:
* Fundamentals *
* Level 1 (Learn to Train) *
* Level 2 (Train to Train) *
Tony looks forward to many more years of teaching and coaching young players entering our St. Anthony Programs.
