Academy for Coach ng SBP

Filed under Basketball Balita RSS RSS Feed

KABILANG sa prioridad ng Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas ang palakasin ang aspeto ng coaching. Ito ang pangunahing dahilan sa pagbuo ng SBP Academy for Coaches.

“Investing in the development of our coaches enables us to raise the number of players that we will help improve exponentially,” pahayag ni SBP President Al Panlilio. “For every coach we help, that’s at the very least twelve more players who will benefit and a lot of these will be younger players.

“We all know that the future of our basketball program is dependent on the development of our grassroots and great coaching allows us to address that issue at a very early stage.”

Sa nakalipas na mga taon, nakapaglibot ang SBP, sa tulong ng Coaches’ Commission, sa pangunguna ni coach Jong Uichico, sa iba’t ibang lalawigan at lungosd para sa programa na magtatapos sa gaganaping SBP Coaches’ Summit sa Hulyo 20-21 sa Meralco Fitness Center.

Bukod kay Uichico, makikibahagi sa pagtuturo sina NBA G-League assistant coach Damian Cotter, NBL champion coach Dean Vickerman, Gilas Pilipinas Men head coach Yeng Guiao, Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 commissioner Eric Altamirano, at Basketball Coaches Association of the Philippines president Louie Gonzalez.

“This is a bigger project since we have international coaches and three local coaches. Most of the topics will be done by the Australian coaches Dean Vickerman and Damian Cutter,” sambit ni Uichico, patungkol sa programa na itinataguyod din ng MVP Sports Foundation, SMART, Chooks-to-Go, at Blackwater.

“It’s good for our local coaches since we won’t be discussing just X’s and O’s but also the other side of basketball.”

“From experience, the coaches know just how passionate Filipinos are about basketball and about learning more about the sport so they are always excited to be here,” sambit ni Panlilio.

“But we cannot forget the work that our local coaches such as coach Jong Uichico are putting in. We appreciate the help of international coaches but we also know that our own coaches also impart a lot of knowledge all over the country.”

Iginiit ni Uichico na magiging makabuluhan sa local coaches ang programa.

“When I started coaching, I attended a lot of clinics and I had to pay for it to attend abroad. The SBP is bringing it to the Philippines,” spahayag ng nine-time PBA champion coach. “It’s a big savings dahil sila na ang pupunta sa atin. This is also in cooperation with FIBA so the coaches have FIBA licenses.”
