Basketball Team Trains With Experienced US Coach
Jerry Jenkins, an experienced university basketball coach from the United States, visited Stamford School for a coaching session with the U19 team on Monday 31st January.
Jenkins coached the Leicester City Riders and was Northern Coach for the All Star Game. He played in Europe for Panathaniakos and in the UK for Brighton Bears and Leicester City Riders, and was at one stage the highest scoring player in British Basketball.
Coach Jenkins emphasised doing the basics with correct technique and not to be afraid of repetition. It was a very successful session and the boys learnt a great deal.
