About me

josep-maria-berrocal-ec-10-11

Basketball is passion, a way of life and it is my job as well. One day, when I was nineteen years old, I decided to start coaching basketball and it hasn’t stopped; and because of this sport I’ve been able to live experiences that I would have never imagined.

I made good friends, and have had the opportunity to travel and live around the world.

Basketball is a lot more than putting the ball in the hoop. It’s union, teamwork, friendship, dialogue, effort, sacrifice and passion. Without doubt a real lesson in the course of life.

I consider myself fortunate and the reasons for creating this webpage are to honor the many great moments I have experienced through basketball, to share what I’ve learned , to learn from others and interact with the basketball world.

I have experienced basketball from many different perspectives(Head coach, assistant coach,youth coach, scout, conditioning coach and have taught university courses). Years keep passing by and I have the same illusion and passion for learning and getting better from when I was a boy.

The life of a basketball coach is not always easy to combine with a personal life. In this aspect I feel fortunate for having always by my side my wife Beth, our children Jofre and Bruna, my parents Santos and Nuria, and my brothers Santos and David. Without them it would have been hard to make a living doing what I really love. Thanks, I love you.

I also want to thank all the players and coaches who have helped me and given me company throughout the years. The list of names is endless and, with most of them, I still have a good friendship. Thanks friends.
