ANDREW MACKAY

HEAD OF BASKETBALL

My main goal is to assist all who come into our program, either directly or indirectly, by developing our coaching staff and constantly improving how we deliver our training sessions. I will work with you to assist you in achieving your goals through various mediums such as on court workouts, film study, off court discussions and much more. Reach out to me to set up a time to get you started on your basketball path.

JOSHUA KOOIMAN

BASKETBALL COACH

I grew up on the North Shore playing every sport under the sun at Primary and Intermediate School. Basketball became my passion at Westlake Boys, playing in the Prems team for 3 years, two of them under Coach Zac, and Captaining the team in Year 13. I am currently at AUT studying Sport & Rec, and coaching and training at 33 Gym & Hoops. I’m also a proud supporter of OKC, Chelsea FC and the Vodafone Warriors. I enjoy the process of getting better, always looking to improve my own game, and through coaching others help them improve theirs. My plan is to continue growing both as a player and a coach, working towards playing and eventually coaching at NBL level and beyond. I currently assist with our Hoop33 Player Academy, and am available for private coaching.

Kristin Robinson

BASKETBALL COACH

I’m 33 years old and grew up on the Shore playing basketball at GC (Glenfield College) and Harbour. I love the game and have coached in Australia and Brazil. I speak Portuguese and Spanish. I am now coaching back in NZ and love it!

My goal as a coach is to help ballers better their game as an individual and as a team player. My favourite player of all time is MJ and my fav team is the Grizzlies – gotta back Steven Adams!

RILEY BONAR

BASKETBALL COACH

I’m from the Hibiscus Coast and currently studying Sport and Recreation at AUT. I am also coaching the Orewa College Premier Team and coach at Hibiscus Coast Basketball. I’ve always loved to compete in basketball and someday I want to play at the highest level I can possibly get to in my life, so I’m very keen to put all the hours I can into basketball training and the weight room to make that happen. I got into coaching because I love the game of basketball and I’m passionate about helping people get better to succeed in what they love also. I hope to use my time at 33 to gain knowledge and experience in the best ways to coach a high-level team in terms of culture, training, in-game situations, and how I can improve players’ mental game. To see the teams I am coaching succeed is all I want!

Ethan Rasmussen

BASKETBALL COACH

Kia ora. I’m Ethan and I have a passion for basketball. I love coaching and playing the greatest sport on the planet. I’m an Intermediate School teacher and coach. I grew up on the North Shore, went to Takapuna Grammar and love all sports! It’s my joy to help athletes make progress and achieve their goals. If you put in the hard work, you’ll get the results, and nothing is impossible. If you’re looking to improve your basketball skills anywhere from complete beginner to competitive advanced, I can help you achieve your next steps. I specialise in shooting improvement and teaching you how to get past your defender every time. You have incredible potential, so book in this week for an individual session to see how I can help make you better at the sport we love; or grab a buddy and let’s have a group session to get both of you to the level that we know you are capable of.

Onyekachi (Kaycee) Anibueze

BASKETBALL COACH

I’m Kaycee, and I’ve been playing basketball since I was young. It started when I landed in New Zealand from South Africa years ago and I have been challenging myself to be better ever since. I played throughout my high-school career, finishing with a championship at Rangitoto College in 2016. I hope I can give back what I’ve learned to the next generation so they can learn and experience all the good things basketball has to offer.
