The BFI is happy to announce that FIBA will be sending a WABC instructor to India again in November/December 2017 to educate and certify our Coaches. During his visit, we will be conducting 2 x WABC Level 1 and 2 x WABC Level 2 courses.

 

The new WABC Coaching Certification program is a global coaching program that will provide uniformity to the Indian coaching systems. It is important that coaches participate in these courses as they will create a database of coaches who will be eligible to coach National teams and be selected for future BFI programs.
