Babb queries plan for netballers
Apparently Sabreena Smith isn’t alone. Former national netball coach Alwyn Babb has also blown the whistle on the Bajan Gems after publicly questioning the training programme heading into July’s World Cup in Liverpool.
Babb took to Facebook to express his dissatisfaction with the preparation just weeks after veteran player Sabreena Smith said she wasn’t returning to the national set-up because of differences with head coach Sandra Bruce-Small.
“Any training programme for any sport has to have an outcome and timeline. At every step of the way the coaches or whoever is involved in the programme need to demonstrate that by the end of any given period, whether it is general prep or specific prep, where it wants the team to go.
“The programme should be out there producing a team ready to compete with the rest of the world . . . What is happening currently does not tell me there is a programme, at least one that you can put your hand on,” Babb told THE NATION. (RG)
