LBI Staff Announcement: Geoff Benson

Logan Basketball Incorporated is excited to announce the appointment of Geoff Benson to the position of Basketball and Performance Manager. Geoff brings a wealth of experience in basketball both at the community and professional level including current QLD North U16 boys coach, continued involvement in the Basketball QLD State Performance Program (SPO, SPP and NPP), NBL1, leading programs at Cairns Basketball and commercial sales manager for the Cairns Taipans.

On his appointment Geoff said “'Firstly I really want to thank the board at LBI for giving me the opportunity to put my stamp on a young and already successful Association. I am truly looking forward to working with some of the best athletes and coaches in the country and really love the family feel and culture that Logan has as an association.”

“I have been lucky enough to be part of building very successful programs with some of the best coaches and administrators in Australian Basketball over the past 10 years. The number one constant I have found is that there are no shortcuts, success and great culture are a result of hard work, commitment and relationships. So I am really looking forward to bundling everything up with my own touch and continuing to grow the program Logan has in place.”

“Without being behind the scenes as of yet and not knowing all the ins and outs of the program, I would like to say that, the main points of emphasis for me is making sure we are teaching all of our athletes fundamentals first, not just of basketball but of being a great human as well. Doing this in a fun team environment along with consistent learning and improvement throughout age groups, will ensure that we are always growing as players and as an association. This to me is the foundation of Logan Basketball becoming the premier Basketball Association in Australia - which is exactly what I am wanting to achieve here.”

Geoff will officially begin the role in early June and can be contacted via
