ZAMBIA Basketball Association vice-president in charge of the Northern region Andrew Nyirenda has appealed to clubs to put in place proper management structures in a bid to enhance the development of the sport.
And International Basketball Federation coaching instructor Ronnie Owino has urged local coaches to continuously update their knowledge of the game through various training programmes.
Speaking at the close of a ten-day Olympic Solidarity /FIBA young coaches module one clinic in Ndola on Thursday, Nyirenda said some clubs were making slow progress in developing as they had no proper management structures in place.
“The situation where one person is the team manager, coach and chairman at the same time must be changed and we should be looking at bringing more people on board in our clubs,” Nyirenda said.
He thanked the National Olympic Committee of Zambia for facilitating the course through the International Olympic Committee and urged participants to share knowledge gained.
Meanwhile, the Nairobi based expert Owino said in his experience as a coach, success was achieved through hard work and an unending desire to learn as the game was ever changing.
And NOCZ board member Stephen Simpemba, who presented certificates, implored participants to return to their bases and share knowledge with their colleagues.
The clinic drew 19 participants from various parts of the country namely Chingola, Choma, Kitwe, Livingstone, Lusaka Mansa, Mpika, Monze and Ndola.
The FIBA module one clinic is the first level qualification under the continental basketball body structure of grading courses.
