Level II Coaching Course

This is the first level of award in coaching basketball for working with players without supervision.

It qualifies coaches to work in schools and clubs, and to coach teams up to England Basketball League level.

The course is mainly practical and will provide opportunities for those with limited playing experience to improve their skills. We aim to develop the skills and confidence required to lead a club or school basketball programme. Delivery of the sessions will take the current strengths of the candidates (for example, players, teachers, coaches of another sport) into account.

Assessment is by satisfactory contribution to the course, small group coaching assignments, a theory examination paper on the final day, completion of logbook exercises and a record of training and games coached. It is anticipated that most candidates will complete these between the two weekends of the course.

The minimum age for Level 2 certification is 18. However, younger candidates may take the course and, if the required standard is reached, the certificate can be issued later.

A minimum number of 12 candidates is required for the course to be viable. There is a maximum of 20, and places will be allocated on a "first come, first served" basis as course fees are paid.

The course will be held at Cirencester Deer Park School, Stroud Road, Cirencester GL7 1XB, over the weekends of 19/20 May and 30 June/01 July. Times are 09:00 - 17:00 for each session.

The course fee: £120 including resources, assessment and certification. Registered GBBA members will receive a £10 discount by quoting their registration number on the application form.

Course tutor: Paul Christensen, England Basketball Senior Coach

Best Of The West

Dear Colleagues,

The Best of the West is a two day weekend tournament, organised by the South West Regional Management Committee involving one team from each of the mens leagues in the South West.

Last year, Warriors represented Gloucestershire with distinction.

This years tournament will take place in Exeter on the weekend of 9-10 June. The Gloucestershire committee will nominate a team to represent the league. There is a participation fee of £80 per team which GBBA will pay on the teams behalf. The team will have to cover the costs of their travel, and overnight accommodation (if they choose to stay over).

At this stage, I am asking each Division 1 team to indicate whether they would be able to accept if invited. It is important that we know which teams are available as soon as the league is concluded. Could you please consult your members as necessary and give me a decision by 19 March at the latest?

Thanks in advance for your prompt response.

Best regards,

Paul Christensen
