BASKETBALL officials in the commonwealth vow to pick up where the delegates of the University of the Nations' left off to push for the improvement of basketball on the island and the development of character among its youth.
Basketball Association of the Northern Mariana Islands vice president and NMI women抯 Nationals coach Elias Rangamar said they are planning to go into the villages to continue teaching the kids the fundamentals of the sport.
"This clinic created great enthusiasm for the sport and was definitely a plus for our kids. As our way of thanking David, Dick, Dan and Mike, we at the BANMI will try to hold similar clinics in the different districts," Rangamar said.
"The clinic was timely as we will be hosting the Micro Games later this month. I hope the kids who joined the clinic will be back to watch the games and support our teams," the BANMI official said.
He added that they also want NMI's neighboring islands to learn about the clinic and take advantage of this rare opportunity to learn from experts.
"We might post some stories about the clinic on our website and then include the contact details of the group. It was a great success here and I am sure our neighbors in the Pacific will want to experience the same success that we had," Rangamar said.
The Northern Youth Basketball Association, whose officials and members helped conduct the four-day clinic, have the same goal.
"We will definitely continue what they have started. The enthusiasm, dedication and time they have shown in the clinic encourages us to improve NMI youth抯 basketball skills and help them develop positive attitudes in life," NYBA vice president George Cruz said.
NBA veteran David Wood and the University of the Nations?Richard Dankworth, Dan Dix and Mike Crown conducted the four-day clinic with the help of volunteers from Youth With A Mission and several members of the NMI men's and women's Nationals.
