sim ID 

Dr Laszlo Nemeth is the former Head Coach of the England Senior Men and Women Teams and to the National Team of Kuwait and Iceland.  He has been involved in the Olympic games and the Asian games and brings a wealth of experience to Eurocamp as Head Coach.  He is dedicated to the European style of play and encourages long range shooting, fast breaks and tough defence.Dr Laszlo Nemeth at present is a Senior Lecturer in Sports Coaching and PE at University of Chichester, Laszlo has been coaching basketball for over 40 years, 30 years of which have been as a full- time professional. He has coached the national teams of Kuwait, Iceland, and Great Britain, and at club level he has coached professionally in Hungary, Kuwait, Iceland and the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. Laszlo has had a glittering career as a coach, and has won many titles and awards with the teams he has coached. he is the most capped England/GB coach still. As a club professional coach he has won national titles in Hungary, Kuwait, Iceland and Saudi Arabia, and in the United Arab Emirates the club he was coaching achieved their best ever league position. He was also voted as coach of the year three times in different countries and the Guardian newspaper voted him among the best six foreign coaching assets in the UK. Laszlo first began his coaching career in 1972 whilst studying at a Hungarian University TF Budapest,. In 1984 Laszlo left Hungary to go to the USA because of the fascist nature of communism, coupled with his concern of the way that sport was run in Hungary particularly because the boycott of the Los Angeles Games. Furthermore, he was concerned about the level of interference from party officials and the autocratic and dictatorial nature of the sport policy makers in Hungary in order to promote sport. Whilst in North America the he gained valuable practical on court experience from coaching legends like Lou Carnasecca, Jack Donohue, Jim Valvano, and Ralph Klein while he is still complimentary of two Hungarians who coached him as a young athlete Ferenc Harris and Ferenc Banky and credits highly his University TF Budapest. These experiences shaped the way Laszlo views coaching and coaching practice. Laszlo is autocratic during training and competition, and feels that there should be no compromise when spending a great deal of time planning and preparing for training and competition. He is very driven and focused, and holds the view that whilst coaching everything else is secondary. However, his style significantly changes whilst out of training and competition, whereby he is a lot more democratic and approachable. He feels that a further role of a coach is to support the athlete in terms of lifestyle management, which may mean helping them in their day to day activities outside of training schedules and competition. This could include providing advice on educational opportunities, consideration of family and friends and a range of other social factors that may impinge upon the athlete during their career. 
Laszlo gets enormous satisfaction from coaching both from a personal level and also seeing his players develop. He still to this day receives letters and emails from his ex-players thanking him for being their coach, and just as importantly for helping them during their playing career There have been frustrations for Laszlo during his coaching career, with the main one being the politics and interference of politicians at the national level, and the unfortunate level of corruption most notably in the Soviet Bloc prior and unfortunately after to the Berlin Wall being dis-mantled .During his coaching career Laszlo has engaged with coach education and has delivered coach education courses for international coaches in a range of countries. He feels that coach education is very important in developing new coaches, which is an aspect of coaching practice he really enjoys. Specifically, it is sharing his coaching experience, whilst at the same time using coaching manuals to support the development of the coach. Laszlo is still passionate about coaching and is continuing to share his experiences with staff and students at Chichester University he is now teaching. Laszlo enjoys every second with his students, and loves Chichester.
