Thanks pare.

The accreditation and licensing based on FIBA requirements will help profesionalize this sector. It's about time that self-regulation under a clear code of ethics be established to prevent the cannibalization of this career stream. The country's student athletes need proper guidance. This is a step in the right direction.

Cua said Gaisano South Cup participating team coaches are required to join the clinic.

He had asked the Gaisano South (GS) Cup management through tournament director Rico Jhone Biliran to postpone the games set during the clinic days so the coaches can attend the course.

The clinic fee of P500 is pegged to defray the expenses for certificates, license and handouts.

Interested participants may inquire and book for reservations to National Coaches Commission regional head lawyer Manuel S. Nitorreda at the 2nd floor of Merco Building, Bolton-Rizal Streets or at telephone numbers (082) 227-6394 and 221-1511. (MLSA)

Coaches now need license


LOCAL coaches now need to have a license to do their business at the sidelines.

The BAP-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas recently launched the National Coaches Accreditation and Licensing Program, a progressive basketball coaching education program that will serve as basis for the accreditation and licensing of local coaches as mandated by the International Basketball Federation.

Former RP women’s coach Bernie Atienza, head of the BAP-SBP’s coaches commission, is in-charge of the program that was launched in Cebu City ( Regions 7 and 8 ) last Oct. 23 with a 2-day coaching clinic conducted by national men’s coach Chot Reyes.

"This is being done in compliance with the FIBA mandate to come up with a coaches’ commission program," Atienza said in the weekly PSA Forum yesterday at the Shakey’s United Nations Avenue branch.

"At the same time, this will also create legitimacy to the term coach. It’s like a driver’s license. Everybody has the right to drive but needs a license. That’s the parallelism in what we’re trying to achieve with this licensing program for coaches," Atienza added in the forum sponsored by Shakey’s and Pagcor.

FIBA introduced the program in the 24th Asia Men’s Championship in Tokushima, Japan, last August.

Atienza bared even US men’s team coach Mike Krzyzewski had to secure a coaching license prior to the Tournament of the Americas where the all-NBA team saw action.

"Right now only licensed coaches will be allowed to coach in FIBA-sanctioned tournaments, no exception," said Atienza, head coach of the national women’s team in the 1993 Southeast Asian Games in Singapore and former mentor of the De La Salle Lady Archers in the UAAP.

The clinic, which has so far attracted more than 200 coaches from eight regions.

BAP opens 1st national accreditation, licensing
Sunstar Zamboanga
Tuesday, November 13, 2007

THE BAP-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas announces the 1st National Coaches Accreditation and Licensing Program (NCALP) and Basketball Clinic for Coaches in Zamboanga City to be held on November 17 to 18, 2007, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Ateneo de Zamboanga MPCC.

The National Coaches Accreditation and Licensing Program is a progressive coaching education program that offers courses on coaching that cover several aspects of the game.

The NCALP will use a training approach that is competency-based, which emphasizes development of the “ability to do” instead of knowledge transfer.

The main goal is to make coaches better prepared to use the knowledge conveyed to them in solving specific problems in their own context.

To achieve this goal, an effort is made to create learning situations that give coaches an opportunity to apply or enhance their competencies such as problem-solving, critical thinking, value appreciation, leadership and interaction.

After completing the training session, participants will need to take a Practical and Written Test to evaluate their comprehension of the course. Those who pass the tests will be issued accreditation and certification for the NCALP by the BAP-SBP Coaches’ Commission.

Chairman Bernardo Garbriel L. Atienza, of BAP-SBP and Coach Eric Altamerano and his staff will be coming over to Zamboanga City to grace the affair. Coaches of different schools and universities of the city are expected to participate.

For further information and pre-registration, you can contact Bong Casimiro at 09194240461 or Pedro Alfaro Jr. at 091947099.

A registration fee of P500 will be solicited to cover expenses of participants’ certificates and license.

XU coach punished for a basketball brawl (http://www.sunstar.com.ph/static/cag/2008/04/12/sports/xu.coach.punished.for.a.basketball.brawl.html)

NEVER punch a player during a basketball game.

Apparently, a grim lesson that is too late to be learned by a cage loop mentor in Cagayan de Oro City.

As a result of an on-court brawl that occurred during the championship game of the 1st Mayor Jaraula Cup last February 27 at Xavier University gym, the BAP-SBP (Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas) Coaches' Commission slapped the assistant coach of the host squad, Xavier University Senior Crusaders with disciplinary action.

"It was horrifying to see a supposedly responsible member of the coaching staff of XU hit with a punch a player of the opposing Capitol University, instead of pacifying and breaking up the fracas that was ongoing at that time. His action can only be deemed as unacceptable and condemnable, thus this reprimand," said Bernardo Gabriel L. Atienza, chairman of BAP-SBP Coaches' Commission, in his letter addressed to Edgardo E. Dacoco, the group's regional coordinator for Northern Mindanao.

Incidentally, Atienza happened to witness the near free-for-all fracas as one of the invited special guests in the company of Mayor Constantino "Tinnex" Jaraula.

Capitol University's senior basketball team of coach Jonas Molawan won that bout, 94-82, though it left its starting pointguard, Elvis Pahilan badly beaten by at least two XU cagers.

Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro withheld the name of the Xavier University's coaching staff member pending the appeal of his case before the said basketball body.

Nonetheless, Atienza directed his local counterpart in the city to withhold indefinitely the issuance of the National Coaches' Accreditation and Licensing Program (NCalp) License due for the light-handed coach, thereby relegating him as a non-entry in the National Database of All Coaches in the Philippines, and also stricken off the General Membership of the Coaches' Commission.

In the same breath, Atienza said "we are hoping that such incident/s shall not occur again, especially so in the presence of LGU Executives, Basketball Officials who only wish and work for national development, and perhaps more importantly, members of the studentry who only look up to these athletes and coaches as role models."

Also furnished with Atienza's warning letter are BAP-SBP's Northern Mindanao director Rey B. Baula, executive director Patrick C. Gregorio, Cagayan de Oro City Development Officer, Rogelio "Jigs" Jaraula, Area 5 Head Pedro Alfaro and Athletic Moderator Gerardo "Boboy" Sabal of Xavier University.

SBP to standardize officiating

BUOYED by the success of the recent FIBA-Asia clinic for international referees in Manila that produced four new international arbiters and renewed the license of two others, the Samahang Basketbol Ng Pilipinas has vowed to give priority to its Referees Development and Accreditation Program aimed at improving and standardizing officiating in the country.

FIBA Sports Director Lubomir Kotleba, who conducted the International Referees Clinic in Manila, commended the SBP program, saying "it is a move in the right direction" while praising the skill levels of Filipino referees.

Recently, the SBP, through its Technical Commission, launched a series of clinics for referees in Naga City, luring over 90 local referees from all over Region 5. Technical Commission Chairman Perry Martinez, along with Education Group Head Liberato Valenzuela, conducted the lecture and practical portions of the clinic at the Aristocrat Hotel and Naga Civic Center.

"The Refs Clinics are meant to bring SBP closer to our ultimate goal of standardizing the quality and level of officiating and ensuring a more unified interpretation of FIBA rules," Martinez explained.

Martinez added local referees welcomed the chance to take part in a legitimate program for referees coming from the recognized NSA of basketball.

SBP Executive Director Noli Eala said the cage body plans to level and license all local referees, with the intention of forming a strong and professionalized referees corps. The SBP referees group will then be made available to all SBP member leagues or associations for their tournaments.

"We cannot even begin to be competitive if our players all over the country do not play under almost similar rules and rule interpretations by the referees. We have 9 international referees to date, and we intend to raise this number to about 12. Hopefully, this could be the building block of a SBP Referees Corps that can be tapped by our member leagues to standardize playing conditions," Eala said.

Referees clinics are also set to be held Baguio, Cebu, Davao and Iloilo. Interested parties can contact the Technical Commission at (02) 7062969.
