World Association of Basketball Coaches (WABC) coaching instructor, Nelson Isley, is scheduled to arrive in Dominica for the implementation of FIBA and the WABC’s “Start Coaching” program for grassroots coaches and to conduct a Level 1 Coaches Assessment Clinic for more advanced coaches.
The two-day clinic will comprise grassroots coaching activities from the newly published Handbook which includes a Coach Workbook, Activities Book, Practice Plans and a Facilitator Handbook to support National Federations to promote and grow coaches at grassroots level, including ex-players, new coaches, parents and physical education (PE) teachers.
This newly developed Handbook features:
- Coach Workbook: the “textbook” for the program
- Activities Book: a collection of activities that coaches can use to teach
- Practice Plans: 10 practice plans to help a coach get through their first season
- Facilitator Handbook: the Coach Workbook including sample answers to the follow up sections
According to a DABA press release, the coaching program is being done in Dominica as a result of the efforts of DABA President, Peter Ricketts, who lobbied the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) to get WABC’s Instructor Nelson Isley to start the program in Dominica as part of the DABA strategic goals to promote basketball coaching at the grassroots level.
