FIBA Europe published a great interview with UWIC Archers and Women’s GB U20 Head Coach Damian Jennings yesterday. It’s extremely interesting to hear his thoughts on a hugely successful year with UWIC (BUCS Champions and EBL D1 Women’s Playoff winners), the FIBA Europe Coaching Certificate Program that he has just graduated from after three years, and his goals for the future.
The takeaway message for me though;
“In Britain we are not gifted with an abundance of coaches in every club, town or city. And although there are some fantastic coaches and passionate teachers, we don’t share very well. We don’t touch base and chew the fat to help each other. I don’t think I was necessarily protective of my coaching, my playbook, my style but more that I had never been afforded the opportunity to share with others. Being around the other coaches from all the countries represented was an amazing, rewarding aspect of the course.”
If you are a coach, are you sharing and learning from others? Make sure you read the rest of the interview!
