NBF hosts Mini Basketball programme in Tsumeb
The mini jamboree was organised by NBF Development Officer Francina Amakali, assisted by NBF’s German expert Frank Albin and several local volunteers. It was made possible through Dr. Nderecha from Alpha Clinic who sponsored the trophies, FNB, the German Olympic Sports Confederation and the German Federal Office who donated equipment to each participating team.
One day earlier, the first basketball high performance center in Namibia was launched in Tsumeb under the guidance of Francina Amakali, Frank Albin and local coaches. Selected players born 1996 to 2000 will work every week on their individual skills according to standards set by NBF. Progress will be evaluated on a regular basis. NBF is planning to implement such high performance centers in various regions in order to raise the skill level and to groom future national players.
