Prime’s own Geoff Rose has been hired to consult for the West Sydney Wolves! The Wolves’ program is a basketball academy dedicated to training and developing athletes with a goal to play in the U.S. collegiately or professionally.
Basketball is still in it’s infancy in Australia, but thanks to the NBA’s global marketing and FIBA it has become a rapidly growing sport. Australia has produced the likes of number 1 overall Draft pick Ben Simmons, NBA Champions Andrew Bogut and Patty Mills, as well as a handful of other players in the NBA. Colleges such as St. Mary’s in California, have made players from cities like Sydney and Melbourne the cornerstone of their rosters. This trend has picked up rapidly in the last 10 years for colleges to go overseas to recruit.
Coach Rose will be heading to Australia later this month to run a weekend long clinic for the Wolves. He hopes to give a great representation of New York basketball while he's out there.
