The International Basketball Federation FIBA has signed an agreement with the professional sports software provider SIDELINE SPORTS to become the FIBA official coaching software. This was announced by both parties today.
Sideline Sports has developed comprehensive computer software designed specifically to help coaches with organization, communication and analysis of their practice sessions and games.
The agreement foresees the delivery free of charge of the main product “Sideline Organizer Standard” to all FIBA approved coaches. In addition, every coach will receive a “Sideline Viewer”, a software where players can view instructional or feedback material, containing text, images, diagrams, animations and video. The “Sideline Viewer” will include video sequences from all the drills of the FIBA book “Basketball for Young Players”.
For a detailed description of all the features of the Sideline Sports products please go to
The FIBA approved coaches will receive the software package once they have registered with FIBA through their national federations. The registration process is regulated in the new FIBA Coaches Regulations, which can be downloaded here. The application form for FIBA approved coaches will be sent to the national federations soon.
“This agreement is a further step for FIBA in assisting the improvement of the coaching level worldwide”, said FIBA Secretary General Patrick Baumann. “Today's players are increasingly ‘tech-savvy’. The school classroom is changing. Players expect to view teaching material in digital format. It may seem a giant leap, but the most important thing is that the material and media focus on the student rather than on the teacher.”
“We are very proud to partner up with the world governing body of basketball and its 212 member countries worldwide,” said Head of Development of Sideline Sports Brynjar Karl. “We are very confident that with our products we can contribute on large scale to the promotion and teaching of basketball at all levels. Our agreement will give access to state of the art educational material to a large number of coaches around the world. We combine the book, the video and the computer.”
