Creon has been a professional basketball coach since his playing retirement in 2001. He coached Teeside Mohawks in the EBL, Surrey Heat and Surrey Scorchers in the BBL. He won the BBL All Stars Championship with the Surrey Scorchers and was voted Journalists Coach of the Year in 2018.
Creon has also held the role of Director of Basketball for Surrey Scorchers, developing the organisation’s first basketball academy and helping grow the franchise in the community with junior basketball programmes. As well as working for his respective clubs, Coach Creon has always used his summers working on projects to improve, develop and give exposure to all levels of basketball players.
Creon said “I’m extremely proud and delighted to accept a role as an Ambassador for the Basketball4All Charity. I feel sport should be accessible to every young person and not just the privileged that can afford to pay. Sport builds and teaches character qualities and skills that translate to help young people in everyday life.
I believe working with the charity will help me continue to give young people opportunities to participate in basketball”.
Ian Miller, Chairman of Basketball4All said “I am delighted that Creon has agreed to become an ambassador for Basketball4All. He represents perfectly, our aim literally, to provide basketball for all.
The experience Creon brings is absolutely of the highest order but importantly for me, it is his compassion, desire, and proven ability to get young people into basketball. We have seen the immediate benefits this brings with many examples in the varied sessions we run and the big plans we have for the future. Creon will be a real asset”
