Mwitwa urges coaches to share knowledge

NATIONAL Sports Council of Zambia (NSCZ) board member Smart Mwitwa has urged the Zambia Basketball Association (ZBA) to pursue developmental programmes if coaches are to be equipped in identifying talent.
Speaking at the closing ceremony of a 10-day FIBA Africa Young Coaches Clinic module one at Olympic Youth Development Centre in Lusaka on Friday, Mwitwa said tapping talent should be top on the agenda.
He commended FIBA for the support rendered in developing basketball.
Mwitwa urged coaches to share the knowledge they have acquired.
“We are grateful to FIBA for the knowledge that has been imparted in our coaches. To the participants, please do not end at storing the knowledge away in your minds. Make sure you go out there and put into practice whatever you have learnt,” he said.
And FIBA coaching instructor Samuel Wanjohi expressed satisfaction at the level of participation.
Wanjohi, who is Kenyan, said Zambia will be a force to reckon with in future should coaches put the knowledge into practice.
ZBA national technical coordinator Lovemore Sikaale is confident the sport will continue growing.
In a vote of thanks, one of the participants, Graham Mounasey, promised to put the knowledge they acquired into practice.
Over 30 coaches, of which three were women, attended the coaching clinic.
