Dear fellow Pilipinas Basketball lover
We are pleased to announce a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to participate in charting the future of Philippine basketball.
On September 14 we are hosting the first ever Philippine Basketball Coaches Conference at the Astoria Plaza hotel along Escriva drive in the Ortigas center. Among the objectives of the conference are:
1. To share with the country’s coaches the SBP programs with respect to coaches accreditation and education, grassroots development, and the National Basketball Training Center concept.
2. To establish a network with the new basketball leadership and be familiar with the new personalities; and more importantly.
3. To benefit from the wisdom and experience of Coach Vlade Djurovich, the legendary Serbian coach who will visit the country for the first time and expound on the European basketball style, vis-a-vis the NBA or American philosophy.
The event is a 2-day conference that will consist of a coaches conference on day 1 and a coaching clinic conducted by Vlade Djurvich himself on Day 2. The event programme and schedules are attached.
The Coaches conference is strictly by invitation. All you need is the endorsement of your regional director and your school’s Athletic Director or tournament head.
In the spirit of the best of Philippine basketball, we remain
Very truly yours,
Executive Director/ Secretary General
