ZAMBIA : Coach training camp in Lusaka

20 Zambian Basketball Coaches graduated after undergoing ten days of training under the auspices of the International Olympic Committee and the International Basketball Federation.

The programme was a FIBA/IOC Advanced basketball coaches course held at the National Sports Development Centre in Lusaka conducted by Kenyan instructor Ronnie Owino.

Prominent among the participants were Aggrey Kabalata, head coach of the 2007 Sprite Challenge Champions Green Eagles, Assistant men's national team trainer Johnny Zimba and Kenneth Nkandu of Lusaka City Council Basketball Club.

Owino who left Lusaka for his home country this morning described the participants as a very enthisiatic group but was also quick to point out that a few were not up to the standard of the course level.

And speaking at the closing ceremony, Zambia Basketball Association president Sam Mukando thanked the National Olympic Committee of Zambia for facilitating the course.
