Basketball England launch webinar series for club support and development

Basketball England is hosting a series of panel discussions to continue the process of growing our club support and development.

Webinars, resources and panel discussions with members of the British basketball community will be available for clubs to tune in to.

The first video of the series is now available with a number of experienced volunteers and staff exploring current views and ideas around developing clubs and sharing best practice from various stages of their basketball careers at clubs and organisations of various sizes.

There will be future videos around ‘Volunteers and People’ and ‘Social Media’, showcasing great practice in these areas.

Sam Lewis, Relationship and Coordination Manger – West Midlands and South West, said: "It is important that as Basketball England, we can offer club support to not only help develop clubs and the sport, but use the ideas and best practice from within the community to help shape this support.

"This is a very difficult time for clubs during COVID-19, however, it is an opportunity to review club activity and learn from one another to overall develop the sport and its’ clubs."
