12+ INTERNATIONAL TITLES IN 10 YEARS

So what does 12 “+” International Titles mean? Well 10 years on at AUBD, we decided to update our website and celebrate our achievements throughout those years.  What we soon realised is that we were not very good at keeping track of our accomplishments. And for those who have been a part of AUBD you will know that we always said winning was secondary to development.  Fortunately we developed such great athletes that we saw many championships and achieved all round great success.

Many of the trophies won were given to our kids to take home and so forth. I guess at the time of victory we always assumed that we would never forget.  But as we all know, time goes on and more achievements come so our memories fade and details are lost.

So the “12” represents the Championships titles that we have remembered the exact name of and / or had a trophy or plague to commemorate it.  The “+” represents the other Championships that we were unable to remember the exact titles of.

What wonderful memories have come back to us of championships and more importantly… champions!

AUBD MEMBER TESTIMONIALS

Max Burstin

I started at AUBD when I was 15, back when there was only 20 kids in the program. Coming in at a young age and staying there for five years was huge for me. The coaching we got there was unbelievable, the detail, the personal attention, the skill development and work ethic was on another level. Not only that, but it felt like we were part of something. It was a movement away from how basketball was traditionally taught in Australia. It was fast paced, hard nosed and ultra competitive. My goal, like most of the guys there, was to play college basketball, and AUBD helped me achieve that. Not only by helping me find a scholarship but also through the hours and hours of training and development. I can’t say enough about what AUBD meant to me, and still means to me. It’s a special place, and I’m proud to have been apart of it.

AUBD provided me with the opportunity to learn, practice and play the sport I love not only in Australia, but in different parts of the world. The memories I have from my time with AUBD and the friendships I made are something that I carry throughout my life and will take with me until the day I die. The program not only taught me skills that translated onto the basketball court, but instilled values of respect, hard work, mental toughness and many more essential attributes, that have assisted in my transition to the next phase of life after basketball. The coaches are the best in the world and have provided me with the best possible preparation to overcome any and all situations life has to offer and I will be forever grateful.

AUBD was the beginning of my real passion for basketball, I knew I loved the sport but wasn’t sure if I could ever go as far as I wanted or dreamed of. With the hard work and dedication the coaches like Sedale Threatt Jnr., Darryl McDonald, Lanard Copeland and Sedale Threatt Snr. instilled in me I’ve been able to bring my game to a whole new level and even after my time with them, I’m still using the life lessons and skills they’ve taught me to better myself.

Lanard Copeland

Wow , time really flies . I think back to the beginning of AUBD , the brainchild of father and son , the Threatt men ….. What a fantastic idea  helping hundreds of kids play the game they loved . I think back to all the kids that started the morning program and how they’ve grown , some on to college some on to the Pros . Without this program , myself and Darryl Macdonald would not have had an opportunity to start our coaching careers and certainly would not have be able to grow a relationship with the Threatts … So I say, Well Done to you two guys and thank you so much …..
