On 23 May at the Paraparaumu Community Gym the Kapiti Basketball Association U15 Representative Players had an amazing experience with Coach Rewi Thompson. Coach Rewi, who was one of New Zealand’s best Basketball players has over 20 years’ experience coaching at High School level in the USA. KBA U15 Boys Rep Coach Graham Cowle said “It was a privilege for me and the players to learn from Coach Rewi, we soaked up his advice and guidance. You could see the players confidence grow as Coach Rewi took them through a series of drills to improve their team work and with a strong focus on defence. The timing was also perfect as we are preparing for the regional qualification tournament.”

 

Coach Rewi is back in New Zealand on holiday and gave up his time for free to put the local players through their paces. KBA Head Coach Angelo Robinson was extremely pleased that 12 local coaches attended to observe Coach Rewi in action as an integral part of their development as coaches. Any budding basketball coaches keen to be part of the Coaching Development Programme should contact Angelo on This email address is being protected from spambots.
