Mansfield Giants Basketball Club have re-signed local, and fan favourite, Dan Watts for the 2011/12 season.

The 6ft 6 forward will join player/coach Dan Richards, who will be at the helm again for a fourth season, as the Giants’ squad begins to take shape.

A Level Two Basketball Coach Award course, in association with the Giants and the Samworth Church Academy, will be held at Samworth Church Academy, Sherwood Hall Road, mansfield, on 30th/31st July and 3rd/4th September (9am-5pm).

This is the standard level of coaching qualification for all club coaches at local level. The award gives a general overview of all aspects of basketball, and a basic introduction to sports coaching.

It may appeal to coaches making a regular commitment to one particular team, experienced players or sports students, a club coach, schoolteachers and Preliminary Coach Award holders who wish to improve their knowledge of basketball.

Cost is £135, contact Ian Richards on:
