The FEB Foundation School launches its second edition in Tangier
11/17/2009 The Sociocultural Basketball Foundation of the Spanish Basketball Federation has opened the second edition of its Basketball School in Tangier (Morocco). The Basketball Club is a sports and social club created by the FEB along with the club IRT, the current Moroccan champions. The Foundation will be represented by its general director, Alfonso Seoane.
The school was created on May 27, 2008 and has a total of 550 children nowadays. It was the first program of the Foundation tied to international cooperation as it appears in its statutes. From an early stage the goal of the Foundation with this program has been to develop and improve the infrastructures of the club IRT over the first year, as well as to offer guidance to the participants, in addition to help in the organization of the Moroccan team by teaching the methods used by the FEB in the present days.
One of the goals achieved over this first year has been the preparation of the coaches who are now in charge of the Foundation School. Also, and besides the technical and tactical guidance for the current members of the IRT, two courses for coaches whose certification have been approved by the Moroccan Federation of Basketball were jointly organized over the past year. This initiative was made possible through the agreement signed by the president of the FEB with his Moroccan counterpart in the act of foundation of the school. These courses have also been open to participation by other Moroccan coaches outside the project.
