Basketball Fiji (BF) continues to make headways with preparations for the 2014 FIBA Oceania Under-19 Basketball Championships holding their first workshop for volunteers yesterday.

Association secretary Ned Taito explained the aim of the workshop.

“This was the first workshop held for all the volunteers who will be helping with the operation of the tournament,” Taito said.

“Their role is to assist the teams settle into the games village and familiarise them with shopping, the laundry and other basic amenities.

“More importantly, they will help keep the teams informed about the daily schedule for the tournament, keeping them updated on what’s happening each day.

“We’re going to have about 90 volunteers all together.

“We’re also going to be holding workshops to upskill officials who will serve as referees, bench officials, time keepers and other personnel as part of ensuring the best possible officials run the tournament.” Taito said the team bonding exercise between the BLK Fiji men’s and women’s Under-19 teams participated in a team bonding exercise at the Togalevu Naval Base .

He said it was a success.

“The U19 men’s and women’s teams along with their coaches and officials took part in a team bonding exercise at the naval base in Togalevu.

“It was basically to test their strength as a team as well as their decision making and thought process as individuals.

He confirmed they would be working with the Republic of Fiji Military Forces to ensure the smooth running of the tournament.

“We’re looking to get the help of the Fiji Police Force and the Fiji Corrections Services.”

Yesterday’s workshop included five officials from the Lautoka Basketball Association and a number of officials from Nadi.

It was held in conjunction with a children’s basketball coaching clinic at Ed’s Court in Raiwaqa, Suva.
