ROYAL OAK -- Dozens of area coaches are expected to gather for tips on leading their teams during the fifth annual Knights Basketball Coaching Academy Saturday at Kimball High School.

Paul Galbenski, Kimball's varsity boys basketball coach, created the workshop to help newer coaches who may know how the play the game, but sometimes have difficulty training their players.

"I think, a lot of times, you have moms and dads who are asked to coach and they don't have that expertise," said Galbenski, who has coached Kimball for seven years. "They may only remember how they were coached when they played in high school."

About 75 coaches are expected at this year's academy, which will feature workshops by Garth Pleasant, Rochester College's men's basketball coach, and Coach Marylou Jansen from Madonna University, who was inducted into the Detroit Catholic League Hall of Fame in 2001.

Several high school coaches also will speak and lead the group in hands-on demonstrations, Galbenski said.

"The coaches are seeing the concepts being taught on the floor and they can ask questions of the coaches that are presenting," Galbenski said.

Coaches of all experience levels can learn valuable information at the academy, Galbenski said.

"As it's evolved, we've had college coaches, experienced high school coaches," Galbenski said. "It's become an opportunity for them to expand their knowledge of the game."
