The participants for the basic course came from different Khomas schools, among others from Amazing Kids, DHPS, Windhoek International School (WIS), Sunshine Private School and Immanuel Shifidi.
Other participants also came from Concordia, Gammams, Khomas High, Van Rijn, Elim Primary School, David Bezuidenhout, Jakob Marengo, as well as from basketball clubs like BAS and the Technical Basketball Academy.
The introductory level 1 Basketball4Life coaching clinic is an initiative created by the NBSL through the Namibian Basketball Federation (NBF) 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 about the basketball league this year becoming more organised and professional.
“We will have more teams this year than before and we are excited about what the league will look like; with this training, the coaches will be able to implement their knowledge in the NBSL and we will see how life skills will play a major role in youth basketball and schools.
“The league will kick off this month in partnership with OTB,” said Ramah Mumba, BAS director and secretary-general of the NBF.
Mumba conducted the course together with BAS coordinator and NBF development officer Malakia Matias.
