Basketball WA headed country side in the last fortnight with visits to Esperance and Manjimup by Education and Training Officer Vlad Alava to the southern regional areas.
The visits were designed to offer assistance to the country Associations in a range of areas including referee development, coach clinics as well as player development clinics.
The early November visit to Esperance was the second time in three years and involved a holistic approach to basketball in the region with referee clinics and Association administration assistance supplemented by school basketball clinic visits over a three day period.
Last week’s sojourn into the South western regional town of Manjimup- the second time in consecutive years- had coach and player development in mind with Vlad Alava hosting local coaches and players and putting them through an array of skills, drills and activities.
Both visits were heralded as a true success and continues Basketball WA’s commitment to developing and assisting country basketball.
Basketball WA would like to thank both Committees and Board members from the Esperance and Manjimup Clubs in supporting the visits particularly Ross Tamlin (Esperance) and Michelle Lyster (Manjimup) whose efforts were pivotal in ensuring the visits went ahead.
