Together, they have won endless titles including EuroLeague Championships, 204 National Championship titles, International club championships, World and European championship trophies, and Olympic Medals.
The mission of the EHCB is to transfer that coaching knowledge and valuable experience which has been accumulated over years and at the highest levels, to future generations of coaches from all over the globe – to leave a legacy, improve the game, and solidify the coaches role as part of the game for years to come.
On the academic side, the prestigious Basketball Coaching College from Belgrade has for the first time in its history become available for everyone around the globe – delivering lectures online and in English.
