In 2006 after completing his rookie season,
Andrew was in preparations for Australia’s 2006 World Championship
campaign in Japan. As he was trying to get back into shape to be ready
for the National Team preparations, Andrew started his Basketball and
Weights training. Being in America for the last 3 years, Andrew had
forgotten how hard it was to access a basketball venue at suitable times
to his training program on a daily basis. Usually these facilities only
have small windows where the courts are free for casual use, prompting
to training cancellations caused by the court being rented out to
schools/public last minute. The other problem was that most basketball
related venues don’t have a weights/strength and conditioning venue.
Along with the previous two points, Andrew also treats recovery as
importantly as any other training tool. (ice baths, spas, pool
Now, all these facilities are available, but
rarely under roof with one membership fee, and the fact you would have
to drive from place
to place to get each form of training done really got time consuming.
This prompted Andrew to purchase a basic building in a brand new
industrial area in Carrum Downs, located in Melbourne’s South Eastern
What followed was the slow process of setting out to build all of the
above under one roof. 5 years since the purchase of the building and we
have Andrew Bogut Basketball. The only private venue dedicated solely to
basketball players and their passion to get better. A basketball
factory was born.
First and foremost we will NOT make any absurd guarantees and
predictions to any of our athletes. Everything comes down to the athlete
and how hard they want to work. The ATHLETE is the one doing the work,
we cannot do it for them. We are however a valuable tool, that when used
right can help an athlete in achieving their goals. If you know Andrew
Bogut’s story, you will know that talent did not get him to where he is
today. Andrew has opened this facility with the mindset of helping any
athlete who wants to work hard and be the best he can be. We will not
happily take your money and sell you false promises and hope. We pride
ourselves on being honest to the Athlete, and their parents or guardians
in relation to what we think. We would rather have 10 athletes who want
to train and work hard, than 20 athletes who don’t. The bottom line is
this: If you want to train and work hard in one of the best basketball
training environments in Australia, Andrew Bogut Basketball is for you.

offseason when he is in town, he will be at some of the athlete’s
