My name is Dagmar van Hinte and I’ve been playing for BBU’01 in Germany last season. We have started play-offs and we are hoping to move up to the 1e Bundesliga with our team. Right now we play under the coaching of Thorsten Schmidt. However we are looking for a coach or assistant coach that can help us during our training and games, because Thorsten also has another Job that takes a lot of time. We are looking for someone that is able to be there when he is not and prepare our team for the games.

Added 9 June 2021: Rhine River Rhinos (Germany, RBBL1 (Division 1)) are looking for an ambitious head coach. Ideally we are looking for an experienced coach, that can teach our many national players a lot and unlock their full potential as a team. But we are also open to give a chance to a young and talented coach with a clear vision for our team. Our head coach is autonomously in charge of organizing the teams trainings sessions and his coaching tactics.

Rhine River Rhinos were founded in 2013 and made their RBBL1 debut in the season of 2016/17. We have been doing our best to develop professional structures within our club. But as many others there is still room for improvement and we are working hard on us to do so every year. However, compared to other European teams, we do not need to hide concerning our professional structures: All our athletes have working contracts as professional athletes which means that they get full health care and accident insurance and get their visa as professional athletes.

Over the past five seasons in Division 1 we have made it to the playoffs three times. In 2017 we placed second at Challenge Cup. Our roster holds national players from six nations. Our plan is to not only establish our team to play for the titles of the league, but also to develop our sport for a wider audience.  We live by our motto: You can’t stop a running rhino!

Interested? Don’t hesitate to contact our manager Mirko Korder via Email: Mirko.Korder@sv-rhinos.de

Added 14 April 2023: Hello, my name is Conn Nagle. I was born on 15th January 2001, and I’m 22 years old. I’m a male, double-leg amputee from the UK, with a 4.0 classification.

 

I have been playing wheelchair basketball since I was 6 years old. I played for the Belfast Knights in Northern Ireland until the 2019/2020 season, at which point I transferred to the Sheffield Steelers to play in the British Premier League.

 

I have been part of the Great Britain Under 23 set-up since I was invited to my first training camp at 12 years old. I was part of the Great Britain U22 squad that finished 4th at the IWBF European Championships in Italy in 2018. In addition to this, I played for the Northern Ireland 3X3 team at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham (UK), where we beat Australia and South Africa.

 

My main strengths are my speed, chair skills, and ball-handling. I can also shoot from range. In addition to this, I have a very good understanding of the game and strong defensive awareness.

 

I would like to play in either the Spanish, German, Italian or French leagues for the 2023/2024 season, but will consider all offers. For more information or for game footage, please send me an email at connnagle@hotmail.co.uk, or send a direct message to my Instagram account (@connnagle4) or to my Facebook account (Conn Nagle).

Added 25 January 2022: Hello, I’m Sam Armas and I am a 23 year old mid-sized 3.5. I have been playing wheelchair basketball for 11 years, and have been playing for Auburn University in the NWBA Collegiate Division for the last 5 years as a team captain under Auburn and USA men’s head coach Robb Taylor. I was selected to the 2022 u23 USA Team, and served as a captain for the u23 team as well. We won gold in qualifiers in Playa del Carmen Mexico, and finished 6th overall in the 2022 u23 World Championships in Phuket, Thailand. I have also been in the Team USA selection pool since 2022, and have attended invite-only USA Senior Team tryouts. I am a natural leader and have been a captain of every team that I have ever played for, and I have accumulated International experience from the u23 team and from playing against professional American players at tryouts.

As a 3.5, I pride myself with being an all-around player with a high basketball IQ. I particularly value defense, and use my strong chair skills and communication to be an asset on that end. Offensively, I use my explosiveness to cut to the hoop, and can finish through contact or use my strong court vision to make an extra pass to an open teammate. I have a solid mid-range game, and have a particular knockdown shot from the left 45 bank shot. I have a versatile game, and am willing to fill any role to help my team win; whether that is as a primary scorer, facilitator, post player, defensive specialist, or any other role. I am interested in playing in Europe next season, and particularly have a preference in the Spanish or German leagues. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at sarmas99@gmail.com.

I grow up with the dream to play in Europe and that’s the reason why I am writing this massage requesting that if there’s any team in need of new players (1/1.5) I am availing myself on that and that will be a dream come true for me and I will grab that opportunity with both hands.
