REPORT OF XIII ABE LINC INTERNATIONAL BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT ON ENVIRONMENT AND SPORTS, KAMPALA UGANDA ON 05TH TO 11TH DECEMBER 2005(3)

ORGANIZATION ANALYSIS:
1. UNITED NATIONS ENVIRONMENTAL PROGRAMME (UNEP).
As being the World body that's deals with Environment and especially with sports UNEP should also go into all discipline sports rather than a few ones like athletics, swimming, football etc.As we know Sports and Environment goes together and it affects one other one way or the other. They should get involved more and send representatives(staff) to over see the events in future but thank you very much they provided materials,posters,DVD's,CD's,books and supported me from the very first time till the end. God bless you. Please come in a bigger way to make it successful.
2. GLOBAL SPORTS ALLIANCE (GSA) ECOFLAG.
They supported me with Ecoflags, posters, bronchures, stickers and advice from Mr. Jason Chare who has been remarkable and wonderful and I thank him personally for making my first major Environment and Sports event in basketball a success.
3. SADILI OVAL (NATURE CAMP).
Sadili has been a mother and father to me as I've been with them for 10years since they started in 1995.I personally want to thank Dr.Liz Odera for her support,advice,caring and making me understand that we can't do without good environment for peaceful sporting country. They gave us UNEP/Ecoflags,donated basketballs and made follow-up of all that I was doing front he time we started with a children basketball camp till the end keep up the good work and we shall and will always work together to have a clean, safe planet. Be blessed. You are wonderful.
4. PROJECT FOOTPRINTS (PEDAS).
After attending the IOC/UNEP Conference in Nairobi, Kenya on 09-11th November 2005 I met Ms.Vita Jauzeme a Director of Pedas an NGO in Latvia who we talked and decided to have a joint workforce plan for the betterment of our environment through Sports. They agreed to have me as a coordinator for Africa and Kenya region offices and make our goal dream of a cleaner, safer, friendly and peaceful environment be met globally. We did clean up camp from Wandegeya to YMCA for three days while on the last day we made all the spectators, players and officials do a clean up on the venue for 20minutes and it was funny, caring and many thought it was awkward to pick plastic papers, bottles, cans and collect garbage as a bad ideal but it was successful because it was before the main final of the men's game at 2100hrs.Most of the games were played till 0300hrs in the morning under floodlights as a tradition of the tournament.
5. NILE BREWERIES (UGANDA).
They were the MAIN sponsors of the tournament and made it more successful. They went round to make it the tournament of the year and region like never before. Keep it up and hope you will come in a bigger way in the next edition (XIV).Keep it up and it was made possible with Abe Linc Committee from Uganda.
6. CITY OILS, ASIATIC SPORTS AND INT.AIDS VACCINE INTIATIVE (IAVI).
Also did support in the tournament and made contribution in a big way in the Abe Linc XIII.Abe Linc committee negotiated and made it possible for them to be on board. Keep up and thank you so much.
PROPOSALS
a) STRATEGY:
We need to implement suggestions that have been brought forward especially ones that will attract corporate sponsorship: community work and charitable events while encouraging environmental programmes in the communities especially the less fortunate like Children Homes, Street Children, High Crime areas and within basketball fraternity.
b) SHORT-TERM PLAN:
1) CAMP: This would help capture the focus of the players and will aid both coaches and players in realizing each others potential and understanding one another once a month.
2) COMPULSORY WEIGHT & ENVIRONMENTAL TRAINING PROGRAMMES: Although this may seem far fetched, (to the players), the benefits are tremendous especially if we are to make it in stiffer and more challenging competitions and events.
3) GAMES: The team needs to participate in series of friend lies with other teams to help enhance their co-ordination and also guide the players in incorporating the plays. Their wit and skills. It will also make them see what other countries offer and environment programme the have.
c) LONG-TERM PLAN:
1) YOUTH CAMP: The federation should seek ways and means of penetrating deep(UNEP) into the grass roots as an awareness campaign (BASKETBALL) and scouting for real talent that is out there waiting to be tapped.(SCHOOLS).Have environmental competitions in sports.
2) CLINIC: This is a positive way of teaching the budding youth the basic of the game and importance of education. The National players should be involved in this exercise and learn that its not just basketball but you need the GOOD ENVIRONMENT to play the GAME.
(3)CONCLUSION:
All National team players must realize that there is a serious task ahead of them. The all Africa games in 2007, we have so far experienced being on that stage in 2003 this country gained a lot from that. So indeed the players must be encouraged by their club coaches who must also help them by tackling their on-court problems to make them versatile and better players. Also Kenya hosted the IOC/UNEP Conference and having the Environment headquarters in Kenya we should make use to gain and teach the young ones about Natures effects and its causes.
