Exclusive interview with Igor Skocovski- One of most talented Serbian coaches abroad for 5th consecutive season - Nov 15, 2012


POSTED BY:

Igor Skocovski has continued his coaching career in Sweden. Visby Ladies hired Serbian specialist for 2012/2013. He arrived to the club from Austrian Flying Foxes Post SV Wien. They won the championship title and Cup trophy last season. Skocovski was named Eurobasket.com All-Austrian AWBL Coach of the Year -12. Before the Flying Foxes, Igor Skocovski worked three years with Slovakian ZBK Whirpool Poprad. With them he reached Extraliga Semifinals twice. In 2011, they played in Slovakian Cup Final. Igor Skocovski was assistant coach of the Serbian U18 NT three years ago. In 2005, he also worked with U18 NT and they won the gold medal at U18 EuroBasket in Budapest.

1. Having coached abroad, not only in your home country of Serbia, but also here in Sweden, what is your view of the level of play in comparison?
I left Serbia in 2008. and even than it was obvious that we are going through crisis ( lot of players leaving for bigger challenges, better conditions overall, not enough young players filling in those spots as well as problems recruiting young ones to be interest in basketball as sport). Lot of it has to do with our National Team success, not enough young coaches that are motivated and financial problems, but I think now it has changed and it is going forward slowly again. Saying that I think Serbia is little stronger at this point as far as club competition but Sweden is progressing every year significantly. I am very interested to see if our National Teams can meet in near future.

2. What do you think about a recent rule changes? For example. Defensive 3 seconds, or the moving blocks that become prevalent in almost every league imaginable, Can you tell us more on that?
Basketball is game that changes a lot,and it is good. Without a doubt attractiveness that is inside the game also reflects on the rules and other way around. I think rules made basketball what it is today - one of the most popular sport in the World. We have to look at the changes as challenges which will even more give to the basketball.

3. What are you plans for the upcoming season 2012/2013
Plans were made very clearly by the management when I came to island. We want to get in play off and that means we need to be at least 8 from 12 teams,we want to develope our young prospects for National team too (U15,U16,U18). Our Team is totally new,with maybe 2-3 same faces but that makes it more interesting for all of us inside the team and around team. We are dedicated making our goals come true.

4. What are the differences between the Swedish, Austrian, Slovakian and Serbian leagues?
It would certainly take a deeper analyses but in sort I think Serbia is more dedicated,motivated and talented that other countries mentioned. We start from very early age,our coaches are more enthusiastic and educated. Even though I must say that other countries are going forward very fast,especially Sweden. Your youth program established 10 years ago is giving results at the moment and that is why Sweden is very good in young competitions as well as in women senior level basketball.Austria could be better, but is not investing enough in youth programs from what I saw, they do not have a solid base and coaches, on senior level only Flying Foxes Wien ( Austria Champion ) is trying to keep them in international competition which is not enough but still they are doing good job. Slovakia made its mark in international competition and holding strongly to continue that with teams like Good Angels and Ruzomberok, but I think they are loosing battle overall with nobody else stepping up (until now). Also basketball base with young ones will soon ( if not already )face problems that Serbia had last 2-3 years ago and that is no young girls in basketball.

5. What are your opinions about Sweden,Gotland island after 2 months months? Are you learning any Swedish?
Sweden is beautiful country,highly organised,I had chance to visit Stockholm before with U18 National team of Slovakia. My opinion is that they are investing a lot in sports overall and that will give results or is giving already. Gotland is amazing, and with everyday on it I like more and more. Medieval city inside the walls is just story for it self and its beauty can not be described by words.I always imagine how it was few hundred years ago to live there,I am sure it was nice. My Swedish could be better, and I picked up few words which is not enough, but I hope by the end of the season I will know little more.

6.What do u miss about Serbia?

I think friends, going out...just being around people I know, the love ones and envying our food.

7. Hows your season going? What are your goals for the last part of season?
Starting late with preparation is giving us a lot of headache but I can only say that management and girls are focus on doing their best. We are all trying to be better from day to day. Our enthusiasm is big and we all know that results will come later in season. We all work very hard towards those goals we set in the beginning of the season.

8. What advice you would give to young coaches?
Never be to proud to ask for advice.Always explore,learn every day and do not allow time to go over you. Basketball is dynamic sports that changes. There are so many good coaches out there,DVD's that you can buy, used that and work on your education every day and try what ever you learn on your team,that is the only way you will advance and your players will grow with you.

Thank you for the interview Igor, Eurobasket and Tamara Ruzic wishes you a lot of success in your career.
