||This is a very good tool and very important for coaches around Europe
The site has already drawn rave reviews from some of Europe’s top coaches.
"We have to keep learning all the time. We have to keep talking about our problems all the time in order to learn. It is a good thing to talk about basketball and our problems because then I think we will learn. For sure I think the web site will help a lot. Young coaches will have lots of help with all the drills in the drills library. I think it is very interesting." – Spanish national team coach Pepu Hernandez
"I think the new internet site is an excellent tool for young coaches. You have the ability to communicate and to see what other coaches are doing and this can only help." – Finnish national team head coach Henrik Dettmann
"I think the web site is not just for young coaches, it is for all coaches. This is a very good tool and very important for coaches around Europe." - Aksavayu Girona Head Coach Svetislav Pesic
