We are delighted to announce that next week we have organised a special FREE Coaching Programme aimed at parents who may be interested in learning more about becoming an Assistant Coach at Blaze Basketball Club.
Although many parents are very willing to offer their help to the Club, there is quite often a reluctance to step forward for coaching roles primarily due to a lack of coaching experience or simply due to a lack of basketball knowledge.
Accordingly, we have developed this programme to address these issues and help parents see that participating in a coaching role can be an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
As the primary aim of the Club is to help children develop basketball skills in a safe and friendly environment, we need your help to ensure that we can continue to achieve this goal through ongoing recruitment of coaches.
