Welcome to the AUBD Gallery : AUBD Members. The AUBD Members Gallery Page has a mixture of photos showcasing AUBD members from the last 10 + years of player development with Sedale Threatt and son Sedale Threatt Jr, along with various other specialist coaches over the years. In 2010 when AUBD launched it’s first basketball development service “Basketball College” there were as few as 10 members at Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre. The average age of our boys was 14 years. Within 2 years we branched out to all boys aged between 10 and 18 years old. In 2016 we re-launched “Basketball College” adding additional focus on team dynamics for international competitions. Todays new development program is AUBD Squad.
I met Sedale Snr. When I first arrived to Australia in 2012. I was coming off an ACL reconstruction. The coaches at AUBD not only helped me get back on the court, but drastically improve my overall skill set. I went on to play 5 seasons here in Australia.
Playing against USA high schools and other USA teams gave a great confidence to come back home and work on my craft. I’ve challenged myself to get the most out of the program. with the opportunity to learn from the best coaches in Australia like Sedale Threatt Sr, Sedale Threatt Jr, Lanard Copeland and Darryl McDonald. The past tour members have benefited from the tour too. We had so much fun in America and also got to meet NBA players like Magic Johnson , Steve Nash, and Kawhi Leonard during the USA tour.
AUBD was the reason I was able to pursue my dream and play collegiate basketball. Not only did they help in getting me recruited, but they offered me a platform to get ready for that next step, whether this was practice, diet, or sessions in the gym. Moreover, AUBD were the first program to really give me a chance to grow as a player in both skills and confidence, something which is often overlooked. I’m truly thankful for the hours Sedale Sr., Jr., D-Mac, and, dare I say, Lanard put in, as without their help I would not be in the position I am in today.
AUBD has contributed significantly to the development and improvement of my basketball skills throughout the years. While being involved from a young age the coaches have advanced my skills allowing me to play and compete overseas. The environment and expertise displayed through the program is of great quality, allowing anyone involved to positively develop their basketball abilities
Both Sedale Snr & Jnr have helped me over the past years with some of the best coaching I have ever had. Without this program I would lacked the skills that were needed. AUBD has taught me everything I needed to know about basketball and lead me in the right direction.
Although I wasn't that great of a player, looking back getting up for training and all that were some of the days of life given how much I love the game. For someone like me that has ADHD and having tried a few medications here and there, my mind never felt lighter and sharper than those days after training in the morning. I really wished I could have taken more advantage of the platform that AUBD offered.
I'll never forget training with Sedale Jr. I couldn’t beat him because he was just incredibly skilled and that’s why I was persistent in asking him if he would teach me. I’m truly appreciative and grateful to AUBD... even now I still train with them when I come to Melbourne.
AUBD and the staff have been an incredibly important and influential part of my life since I first attended one of their camps approximately 10 years ago. For 6 years I was involved with AUBD and I am forever grateful for the life lessons and experiences that the program and staff has offered me.
The Monday and Wednesday sessions each week provided an opportunity to really practice and compete in a “game like” setting, with a strong emphasis on athleticism and effort. AUBD provided a platform for me to not only get better as a player but also to develop a work ethic that I’ve taken into other areas of my life.

I told Neal (AUBD Strength & Conditioning Coach) the other day, for someone like me that has ADHD and having tried a few medications here and there, my mind never felt lighter and sharper than those days after training in the morning with AUBD. I really wished I could have taken more advantage of the platform that you guys offered.

AUBD had an instrumental role in helping me achieve my long term goal of playing college basketball. They aided in both my player and personal development on and off the court and I still apply the lessons I learnt there in my life today.
