We are saying Goodbye

We are saying Goodbye to a good friend, referee, coach and instructor – Werner Blanke.

We are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear friend Werner. He will be truly missed.

People knew and liked him amongst others, because he was the first and only one who showed "yellow cards" in basketball instead of giving technical fouls.

Interview with Werner Blanke

A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts and minds, through us, they live on.

12th edition of REFEREE.PL summary - Antalya, TURKEY

Dear Campers,

It is more than a week after we finished this year’s camp in Turkey. As we know everybody arrived home safe. Some people stayed longer in Turkey, some of you are already officiating at summer tournaments and others went to back to work or for a change to proper vacations. I was wondering who remembers the things was talked during the camp in Antalya…

Session 2 LAST DAY of REFEREE.PL - You have a chance to officiate the best games in the world!

Last day of the second session arrived… Guys were very excited and went out of the frames and got creative. So instead of morning run campers went to the swimming pool to play water polo! Unfortunately there are no photos of this game as the paparazzo was sleeping :)

Session 2 Day 3 - It is not how much we try; it is about the result that comes!

Gym, run, pool – today people divided and did different morning activities. Majority still went to run, lead by Paulina and Tomek, who used the exercise from FIBA.  Day started with the sun, but later was raining; we didn't care anyway, because the games were ongoing and in case wanted people could use the indoor pool.

Session 2 Day 2, 18.06.2015 - Be accountable, honest and get the call right!

Guess what was the first thing the campers did in the morning… the 7 am run of course. They even started before I came down to make the picture; the group had run away :)

First day session 2, Wednesday - Goodbye and hello :)

Like in a FIBA tournament, today we had a day off. People from first session were leaving, so transfers to the airport and another session was coming. Goodbyes and hellos. Some people stayed and some came before, so all in all today was no games and people could use pools, gym or go to the city center or the other resort of the complex for the beach. With this beautiful weather this day was like real vacation.

Final Day 4 Session 1 - Speak to the ones who inspire you!

Now, the last day of the final session arrived…

As this is already a tradition here in the morning again the entire group did a 7.15 run. As we want to take the most of last day, no one is tired, no one complains, and so in this mood we have started the first lecture of the day at 8.30 by Carl Jungebrand. All the instructors’ team came for this lecture. Mentioning that Costas had no lecture today and still he was there, because he also wants to learn. Impressive. Carl was telling us some important things. As referees we are never attacking, we hold the position, so we must defend the position.  This is mental versus psychical challenge. When you walk there, nothing is going to happen that you don't control! You need to know it! – Carl Jungebrand.

Session 1 Day 3 – In a mood of “"We speak the same language in the court" - signals and mechanics

Today again we had an early wake up and the fitness session in the morning at 7.00, we have done a family picture, the first of the day! The temperature in the morning is very good to the outdoor activities; some people instead of run went to the pool.

Day 2 Session 1 - Next generation of referees will be always better than previous one! - Carl Jungebrand

As recommended by Kuba 7.15 the group was running today as a fresh start of the day, having some stretching, lead by Veronika and Sergey.  First important decisions we had to make today before going to the court was what to eat for breakfast, as this buffet in Gloria Hotel is honestly spoiling us heavily :)

So fed and happy we went to first session by Carl Jungebrand.

Games you will officiate at REFEREE.PL in 2015

Camp in Antalya starts in 3 days with its first session. Together with the camp at this very same sport complex of Hotel Gloria a great tournament will take place and you are going to officiate it!

For a week in June, the 1st ESBA Championship “Antalya 2015″  (http://esba-basket.com/antalya-2015/)  will transform Belek into the center of seniors basketball in Europe. Teams from nine different countries will take part in the competition. There are a total of 38 confirmed teams across 11 different age categories.

Longomatch - software at the camp in Antalya

We all like this software! Longomatch is very easy to use, intuitive and super useful to analyze your game. You can easily cut clips during watching the game video and come back to them whenever you need. The same software is being used by FIBA. This year especially for you will be possible to use the full version of Longomatcg pro for free during a month. Peter Strikwerda will train you on how to use the best the features of this program and Peter will be helping during the camp with the clips.
