Basketball Ireland revealed some good news during the week when it was revealed that Spanish Assistant Coach Jaume Ponsarnau, is coming to Ireland on December the 15th to host a coaching clinic in Galway. Ponsarnau has just returned from the European Championships with the Spanish National Men’s team in Slovenia.

Ponsarnau won Catalan coach of the year in 2007 and 2012 during his time as Head Coach of Basquet Manresa in the Spanish First Division, a position he held from 2006 until earlier this year. Having coached players such as Ricky Rubio and  Marc Gasol, Coach Ponsarnau will be hoping to pass on some of his knowledge to the coaches and players that are present next Sunday.

The two topics set to be discussed at the clinic are how to develop the dribble as an offensive weapon and also the pick and roll concept on offense and defense. It certainly does look like a great opportunity for coaches to witness a world class coach at work.
