Meet Our Board – John Gunderson

What year did you join the Board?


Career Biography:

A Division II gridiron scholarship recipient, John taught high school American History while coaching gridiron, basketball and baseball for 15 years before coming to Australia in 2008. Within days, John was working with dual Olympian Brad Dalton at a GPS school and Manly-Warringah basketball.

After 6 months in Sydney, John arrived on the Central Coast where he is the Head of Social Science and Convener of Boys Basketball at Central Coast Grammar School. He landed a spot coaching at Rebels in 2009 and went on to win the Country Championship. John has coached boys at 12’s, 16’s and 18’s having won a Country Championship at all levels.

John joined the Board of Central Coast Basketball in 2016 with a focus on helping develop the representative programs. After what seemed like a long “teething process” after joining the board, he is most excited where the club is heading in its planning of future directions in all phases as the organisation continues to set high standards for itself.
