With the 2019/2020 season fast approaching, REACT Basketball are delighted to announce that Coach Josh Anderson will oversee the Leadership of the REACT Erskine Area Hub for the coming season!
Coach Anderson oversaw the Erskine Area Hub from it's inception in February 2013 to July 2017, previously working to grow the Area Hub in both membership and number of volunteers. During this period, the Area Hub became the largest provider of services within REACT Basketball, something that remains the case today!
We caught up with Coach Anderson to gather his views on his return:
What are you most looking forward to this coming season?
"I'm really just looking forward to working alongside our team of staff here at REACT as we work to provide the best possible service to the young people in which we're tasked to empower, and ultimately working closer with the Erskine (and wider areas) community again."
Do you have a key focus for the Erskine Area Hub for the season ahead?
"Teamwork! There has been a lot of change over the past year or so, and we recognise this. Going forward, I want out team to work closer with parents/carers to ensure that we are all playing our part to provide the best learning experience for the young people who attend REACT because if we get that right, the rest will take care of itself!"
Do you see any challenges ahead for the Erskine Area Hub?
"I wouldn't say there is any one major challenge facing the Erskine Area Hub, or indeed REACT Basketball. The Charity is in a much different place to where it was two, three years ago. As an organisation we now cater for Netball and Dance in addition to Basketball, so we are in a much better place to share resources, best practices and learning experiences. By the whole team working closer together, I think we will be in a really strong position of encouraging even more young people locally to become physically active in one, if not more, of our key three sports."
Is there anything in particular you would like to say to the Parents/Carers/Members:
"I'm very much looking forward to working with all of you this coming season! Let's go REACT!"
