Euroleague Basketball Launches Educational Platform With Euroleague Basketball Institute
The Euroleague Basketball Institute takes its name from an ongoing effort to bring together for the purpose of education the best knowledge available on all aspects of our sport. For years, with the cooperation of sporting and educational entities across the world, Euroleague Basketball has been organizing forums where professionals can meet and exchange ideas to move our sport forward to an even better future. Among those forums have been clinics for coaches, symposiums for media members in the press, television and marketing, as well as the Masters in Sports Marketing and Communication that Euroleague Basketball has organized with the University Ca' Foscari in Venice, Italy, which will enjoy a second edition next season. Now, Euroleague Basketball takes a major step to enhance those efforts by offering an on-line clinic with one of the most-respected basketball coaches in the world, Ettore Messina.
"I want to especially say thanks for the collaboration of an extraordinary coach and a great friend, Ettore Messina," Euroleague Basketball CEO Jordi Bertomeu said at the recent 2007-08 Euroleague Draw. "He has offered to inaugurate our Euroleague Basketball Institute, an initiative devoted to the development of sports specialists as well as the dissemination of the technical knowledge of basketball, by making the most of the great possibilities that new technologies offer us." Details of how to take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn one-on-one from Ettore Messina by joining him throughout the 2007-08 season at the Euroleague Basketball Institute will be available in the near future!
