Jimmy Ploegaerts' art
is pro ball coaching

Jimmy Ploegaerts is among the new generation of coaches that set out to become a professional coach while still in high school. He took up his first training position when he was 13 years old. 16 years later he is the head coach of Union Hainaut Basket in the Ligue Féminine de Basketball (LFB).

Ploegaerts cannot be considered the "new kid on the block" as  he is well known on the coaching circuit in France. Yet this is his first season on the hot seat of head coach.

In the video Ploegaerts explains that he always wanted to be a coach. So he made sure he did his coaching exams while doing an apprenticeship in sport education.

In 2007 when he was employed by Fabrice Courcier in what can only be described as his dream job, he ended his own basketball career (NM2 - Division 2).

He has remained at the club and climbed the ranks. This included three years as head of the basketball academy as well as performing the functions of assistant head coach.

In the second part of the interview he shares his views on his training methods for experienced professionals and the young players from the basketball academy.
