Professional Workout Program for Federico Bavosi

This summer Europrobasket has had numerous high level players in our pre-season training program run by head coach John Tsirogiannis. One of these players was Federico Bavosi, who was with us for a good part of the summer. Federico has a lot of experience as a player playing in various levels in Spain including Leb Gold (2nd Division Spain), 1st division in Uruguay as well as with the Uruguayan Nacional Team. During Federico’s time here he worked with coach Tsirogiannis and Maciej Lampe, ex Nba and Fc Barcelona player. He also had the opportunity to play against Villanova, last years NCAA Tournament Champions. All of this prepared Bavosi for his season with Club Malvin in Uruguay’s 1st division. We would like to wish him the best of luck this season and look forward to him coming back next summer to train with our professional coaches!

Europrobasket Head Coach Signs Professional Contract in Romania

Europrobasket is proud to announce that another head coach from the academy has improved on their career from being a part of our program. Coach John Tsirogiannis came to Europrobasket in January 2016. He came with extensive knowledge and experience at a high professional level. Most of his professional experience comes from his home country Greece where he was head coach in 1st and 2nd division woman’s teams as well as 2nd division men’s senior clubs. He also worked as the head coach for the Junior programs in POAK, one of the biggest clubs in Europe. John’s first international experience was in Iraq, with Super League team  Al-Tadamoun, where he stayed two consecutive seasons. Looking to improve on his resume and expand his contact base he came to Europrobasket as our head coach. After just one month with us we recommended him to the assistant coaching position with Unigirona, woman’s Euroleague team. He helped them to a 2nd place finish in the Spanish Liga Feminina. John was given the opportunity to work with high level professional players such as Maciej Lampe, ex nba and FC Barcelona, Lubos Barton, current FC Barcelona, Federico Bavosi, Uruguayan Nacional Team, Leb Gold, and Queralt Casas, ex Wnba and Galatasaray. Making contacts with agents, coaches, gm’s and players and using this experience gave him the opportunity to receive offers from all over the world. And just after 7 months working with Europrobasket, he received an offer from a 1st Division Romanian woman’s club he just couldn’t turn down. Europrobasket staff and players are sad to see such a great coach go. We would all like to wish him the best of luck in this new phase of his career! Good luck Coach Tsirogiannis!
