Coach Development Opportunity with Victor Lapena

Basketball England is pleased to announce that in conjunction with Reading Rockets and England U15 coach Manuel Pena Garces,  we have managed today to secure an exciting opportunity to learn from Victor Lapeña, Head Coach for the Spanish Under 18 Women's national team and former head coach of Mann Filter Zaragoza (Spanish first division), as well as assistant coach to Lucas Mondelo with the Spanish women's national team. Victor is embarking on a short notice stopover in England and is delighted be able to pass on his knowledge.

The clinic "Defensive transition after shooting" will take place on Thursday 24th May at the John Madejski Academy, Reading. The event is free and open to all Basketball England coaches.

The evening will begin at 6pm when Victor will run an on-court session including individual workouts for the Reading Academy players and coaches. Coaches in attendance will then have an opportunity to talk and ask questions on general coaching with Victor Lapeña. This is a fantastic opportunity for coaches across England and the UK to learn and support their coaching development.

Time: 6:00pm - 8:00pm
