NPBA and BBF to host first FIBA clinic late this month

EVERY two to four years or following the World Championships and/or the Olympics Games, FIBA - the governing body for International Basketball - implements proposed major rule changes.

The most recent change of the Rules came into effect for levels I & II competition as of October 1, 2016.

Hence, the Federation seeks to get an early start in putting information out in sufficient time prior to the start of the basketball season, respectively.

Therefore, New Providence Basketball Association president Eugene Horton announced that the NPBA, in conjunction with the Bahamas Basketball Federation, will be hosting the first clinic for the 2016/17 season from October 20-22 at the College of the Bahamas.

In addition to referee candidates (up for certification/ recertification), the course will be open to table officials, coaches, players, basketball executives, physical education teachers, physical education majors, the sporting media and all other persons connected to the sport.

“I am compelled to further advise however that it is FIBAs’ philosophy for all persons intricately connected to the game attend these clinics, respectively,” Horton said.

The course will be conducted by Freddie Brown, Norman Humes, Randy Cunningham and Christine Cunningham, who will be responsible for table officiating.
