Regan Kama shoots her last hoop for FIBA Oceania
FIBA Oceania Development Manager, Regan Kama, has tendered her resignation from FIBA Oceania.
My husband always says a change is good, sometimes I think this is true. Today I would like to inform all of my FIBA Oceania friends that I have tended my resignation and will be taking employment at one of Coffs Harbour's local primary catholic schools.
I have been employed with FIBA Oceania since March 2004 and have loved and enjoyed every minute of it. My last day will be Friday 21st September, but this does not mean I have vanished completely, I am hoping that I will be able to stay in contact and still see the wonderful things you do for our sport via the website (this means I really need it updated or else I will be totally out of the loop).....
The best thing about sport is the friends and opportunities it provides. People play sport to have fun and competition, some people do not always realise how much more they actually get out of participating in the activity.
I have been involved with basketball one way or another since I was 5 years old. I have been lucky enough to play and work in a sport that I love. Basketball has been a huge part of my life and it is something that I will remain volunteering (as coach/scoretable/parent/player/referee) at our local level, I could never truly walk away from something that has given me so much. Why wouldn’t I want someone else to experience the ups and down’s that I have? It has made me the person I am today.
I have had the opportunity to travel and meet new friends, now I have the opportunity to show my children what I have learned and how to live in a healthy environment. I hope that our FIBA Oceania family share their experiences with their local community and families.
I would like to take this time to thank FIBA Oceania especially Steve and Judy, the FIBA Oceania board, the NBDO’s and of course all of our family members, especially the ones that have welcomed me into their home towns and treated me like one of their own.
The NOC’s / ONOC / NF’s / IF’s have been wonderful support to FIBA Oceania and I thankyou for the relationships that I have made over my time at FIBA Oceania.
I have so many stories that I would love to share, but as the saying goes, what goes on the road stays on the road, sometimes it’s nice to have a couple of secrets.
Of course if you want to keep in touch Judy and Steve will know where to find me and I would love to still provide any support/assistance wherever I can.
If you could please remember one thing, basketball is more than sport, it can provide you with family, friendships, work opportunities, travel opportunities, behaviour in social situations, time management and much much more.
Keep up the love of the game and stay in touch
