Windhoek- 20 new Junior Coaches were trained at the Basketball Artists School (BAS) Foundation in Katutura from 3rd until 4th March 2018.
The participants of this basic course came from different Khomas schools, amongst them Amazing Kids, A.I. Steenkamp, Centaurus, Chairman Mao Zedong, DHPS, Eldorado, St. Paul’s, Windhoek International, as well as from basketball clubs like BAS, Black Mambas and Technical Basketball Academy.
The basic course is part of the project “Free Throw – Basketball Artists against HIV & AIDS” by the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
“We are very pleased with the outcome and are optimistic that we will invite most of the participants for the advanced course in August. Until then, the coaches will be able to implement their knowledge in the Khomas primary and secondary school leagues, which will kick-off in March in cooperation with the Namibian Basketball Federation (NBF)”, said Ramah Mumba, BAS Director and Secretary General of NBF.
Mumba conducted the course together with BAS Coordinator Malakia Matias and DOSB expert Frank Albin.
