Start or basketball pour young people from 8 to 14 years: all amateurs of this sport must note this date on their agenda!
Gold medalist of the French Basketball Federation in 2012, Daniel De Freitas, Trébéen for three years, had only one idea in mind: to discover his sport of heart, basketball, in his new city of heart.
The volunteer had no secret for the one who received the gold medal of the FFBB (French Basketball Federation), during a general assembly held in Arcachon, at the hands of Boris Diaw, then captain of the ‘ team from France.
Excuse me, Boris Diaw, born in Cormeilles-en-Paris, is a French international basketball player who played in the NBA from 2003 to 2017.
Daniel De Freitas, then a cadet, played at CA Romainville basketball club, at 93. Very quickly, the new Trébéen turned to refereeing. At CS Lilas (93), Daniel took the scales to become a referee of the French championship. Referee in eight departments, president of the referees commission from 1975 to 2016, chairman of the disciplinary committee of the 93rd committee, coach of clubs always in the 93, member of the steering committee of the highest disciplinary authorities and his two children Anaïs and Éric did not see him every weekend.
Referee of Nationale 3, from Paris to Lyon, Cherbourg, Caen, Dieppe, Tours or even Le Mans, Daniel traveled about 450 km, sometimes to reach the basketball court.
Eleven clubs exist ats l’Aude. That’s a little bit, that’s why, the Aude committee merged with that of the Pyrenees-East.
This July 2, from 2:30 pm to 8:00 pm, Daniel will discover basketball, with the help of Alexis Devauchelle, a federal technical advisor within the FFBB. Practical workshops to understand what this sport is and learn to play: dribbles, passes, shots and ballooning in the basket!
“Eight years is the right age to start”he declares, before a big smile can illuminate his face by evoking the approach “des Crapules”. The Crapules, is a team made up of ten former and current players or club presidents, all with a training of referees, from the Paris region, who will be there in friendship for Daniel.
Karim, the former 93 player, and his band of Villeneuve-Minervois friends will face the famous Crapules at 6 p.m. Five on the ground and five replacements serious things can then begin.
At 8 p.m., the pot of friendship will close this beautiful afternoon of basketball discovery.
