This weekend was an insightful one for grassroots basketball Coaches in Warri & environs. The Coaches had the opportunity to interact with Giants of Africa Basketball Coordinator, Coach Michael Akuboh during a two days workshop in Warri, Delta State.
Coach Mike, explicitly explained the following:
1. Coaching philosophy
2. Having the right mindset
3. Respect for numbers (time, age, traffic, grades etc)
5. Team work
6. The fundamental concepts of basketball scouting
7. Shell drill et cetera.
All the participants showed enthusiasm and eagerness to put into practice all the important coaching principles they learnt during the workshop.
