Special thanks to those who were able to attend the London Coaches & Officials (C&O) Social yesterday at the Thunderdome - Lewisham, or sent their apologies.
The event and refreshments were well received and voiced as 'a very valuable way of sharing information and being updated from both the officiating and coaching elements of basketball in an open and relax atmosphere'. The coaches found the video clips and explanations an asset to their team development and understanding of why some 'Refs Calls' are made.
Request was made for more gatherings like these in London with the hope of support and attendance from more club/team coaches and officials (Refs & Table Officials) to help increase their knowledge and awareness of any changes within officiating techniques and mechanics or clarification of rules and regulations. It will also help the development of local officials.
The next (C&O) Social is schedule for Wed 15th February from 5-7pm at the Copper-Box, delivered by Ian Green & Aaron Senior, followed by entry to the London Lions BBL game.
Wishing Basketball Coaches, Officials, Participants, Volunteers, Leagues, Parents, Sponsors, Media and Supporters a Happy New Year and Prosperous 2017....
