Zeljko Obradovic, Dimitrios Itoudis and Anton Krump headline the coaching clinic which is set to take place in Ohrid, F.Y.R. of Macedonia, in June 2013.

The coaching clinic is scheduled for 15 and 16 June and will be held in arena Biljanini Izvorui and will be hosted by the Basketball Federation of F.Y.R. of Macedonia in cooperation with the Association of basketball coaches of F.Y.R. of Macedonia.

The international clinic focuses on learning and improving the coaching skills on specific subjects, as well as exchanging experiences with some of the best coaches in Europe.

With Obradovic, Itoudis and Krump, the organisers have turned to some of the biggest names in European basketball coaching.

Obradovic is amongst the most prestigious tacticians in the European game, having won a record eight Euroleague titles with four different clubs.

His list of achievements also includes 11 Greek championships and seven Greek cup titles with Panathinaikos Athens, his last spell as a coach.

The 53-year-old stayed with the Greek powerhouse from 1999 to 2012, with Itoudis as his trusted assistant coach.

At the clinic in Ohrid the coaching duo will hold, amongst others, presentations on pick and roll offence, attack against zone defence and Panathinaikos' training fundamentals.

The lectures will be rounded off by an on-court demonstration of exercises, focusing on work with young basketball players.

Krump, Vice-President of the Youth Commission of FIBA Europe, will complete the clinic programme with lectures on coaching organisations and their functioning, and on pre-selection and selection in youth categories.

Having worked with Slovenian youth national teams for more than a decade, Krump has influenced numerous internationals in their transition from youth to senior basketball, and will give advice on the tactical, physical and psychological development of young athletes.

Interested coaches from across Europe can still register for the clinic.
