At the third day it is visible that the camp is so intense. We have only 4 days and so many things to do, and between all this games, game preparation, clips cutting, video watching, discussing with your crew, presentations, lectures, morning run, pulse run… yeah. Today at 7 again was the run, I have noticed the group was little smaller, this is because some people last evening run the beep test, and simply you need to rest the body.
Yesterday was a day of lectures, today will be a mixture of presentations and half a day of games.
So as tradition says we started with the morning FIBA run at 7 AM. Some guys went to run at 6… :) Fitness is very important part of referee’s life.
Hurray!! We started the second session of REFEREE.PL of this year. Now we are in Radom. The basketball city of the Vice-Champion of Poland.
We kicked off the camp according to the agenda, waiting a moment for late arrivals. Kuba opened the session with the administration stuff, explaining the logistics, as we will play in 5 gyms, then all the instructors introduced themselves and all the campers said few words about themselves. We have a big group of 42 referees and 12 instructors.
Lahdo Sharro is a Swedish FIBA referee, one of the best in his country. Also from a year 2000 he is a Euroleague referee. Which all in total gives him almost 20 years on the court now and many important international matches officiated. Some of you may know Lahdo as an organizer of big referee clinic that is taking place every year in Sodertalje. Lahdo and Kuba are friends from many years already, they made a lot of games together and Kuba is also yearly an instructor at the Scania Cup.
