Basketball Manawatu are taking a slightly different approach this year by opening the trials to players of ALL abilities who are keen to receive extra coaching and training, in effort to grow a culture of development and participation for players of all ages and abilities across the region.
The aim of the open trial is to get a good indication of the numbers and depth of players in the region and allow us to provide opportunities to play and develop their game at both a representative and development level.
Another focus in 2018 is Coach development, this includes engagement of potential coaches at all levels as well as the support and development of our existing coaches.
Kiwi Hoops Coach accreditation sessions are being offered in conjunction with the trials and we see that this is a fantastic opportunity for the current representative coaches to engage with the development coaches and pass on their extensive knowledge (We will also feed you lunch)!
The 2 hour sessions scheduled prior to the trials are only for coaches and players with a good knowledge of basketball, in line with Basketball New Zealand’s expectations moving forward it will be expected that all Basketball Manawatu coaches will be Kiwi Hoops accredited so this is a great opportunity to become an accredited under the new BBNZ system.
