It’s all systems go for the staging of Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) Davao Coaches Clinic Level 1.2 which gets going on Saturday, April 27 at the Genesis 88 Gym.

SBP Davao executive program officer Ronel Leuterio confirmed, on Wednesday, April 25, that the upcoming coaches clinic, a level up version of last year, will open on Saturday morning with a total of 71 coaches officially registered.

He said former PBA and Gilas Pilipinas coach Jong Uichico along with Batang Gilas coaching staff Ryan Betia, and coach Mark Solano will facilitate the two-day clinic.

Despite not reaching the 100 target participants, Leuterio is elated of how participants responded this year compared last year where over 100 coaches reserved a slot but didn’t came.

Leuterio, however, warned coaches that SBP Davao has the right to ban coaches who opt to do the same negligence last year.

“It’s a matter of discipline din kasi. We are only doing this to help the coaches,” he said.

The SBP executive assured that great learnings will be picked during the two-day clinic sponsored by SBP Regional Director and Presidential Adviser on Sports Glenn Escandor.
