Mccollister Named New National Basketball Coach - Sep 11, 2015

  follow us on Facebook Twitter

THE Tanzania Basketball Federation (TBF) has named American, Mathew McCollister as the new coach of national men and women's teams. TBF Secretary General Saleh Zonga said in Dar es Salaam yesterday McCollister is expected to jet in the country on September 19 for further discussions before taking up his new job. He disclosed that Mc- Collister's appointment has been made possible by former national coach Al Sokaitis also from the US. Sokaitis was in the country in 2012 to assist TBF in its efforts to developing the sport. He was the first coach from the US to be named the national basketball head coach on a long-term basis. Sokaitis also served as a technical advisor and was charged with bringing Tanzania basketball to a competitive world level. The American was appointed national coach after his longtime associate, former New York Knicks strength and conditioning coach Greg Brittenham, was invited to Tanzania some years ago to evaluate and suggest how both the men and women's national teams could become competitive in the African championships and at the Olympic level. And when the subject of a coach came up, Brittenham suggested Sokaitis, with whom he has taken part in hundreds of basketball clinics. TBF focuses on promoting the game through participation of young players particularly in schools where they are readily available Naming the American coach as the national teams head coach aims to build Tanzania into an African basketball powerhouse that can compete internationally. Meanwhile, TBF has commended Azam Media group for sponsoring various basketball events and televising them live. "This has helped us a lot to promote the sport within and outside the country as seven foreign coaches had applied to train the national teams" Zonga said.
