By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Belize Elite Basketball League (BEBL) appointed former international basketball referee Glen Gill as its new Commissioner.

The BEBL said the eight teams ‘have united to form a single, cohesive sports organization’ and are aiming to do significant restructuring.

Gill moves up from his position as Deputy Commissioner, replacing Chris McGann who will continue as an adviser to the BEBL’s Finance Committee.

The BEBL said Gill’s ample experience in the sport augurs well for the organization.

“A former FIBA International Basketball Referee and Certified FIBA Referee Instructor, Mr. Gill has played a crucial role in the development of basketball in Belize,” the BEL said in a statement dated November 24, 2023.

“His tenure as the Head Referee for Belize and his involvement in international basketball in the Caribbean and Central America have equipped him with an unparalleled understanding of the sport’s competitive and administrative aspects.

“Mr. Gill’s impressive resume in basketball is complemented by his strong academic back ground. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Technical Education (Construction Technology) from the University of Technology – Jamaica, and a Diploma in Technical Education in Building Construction from the College of Arts Science and Technology Jamaica. He is also pursuing a Master’s of Science in Workforce Education and Development at the University of Technology Jamaica.”

The BEBL said it expects that the change at the helm will make the league grow and become more successful.

“Mr. Gill’s commitment to basketball is evident from his past contributions, including serving as the President of the Belize Association of Basketball Officials and the Belmopan Basketball Association, and his involvement in coaching and player development,” the BEBL statement said.

“His vision for the BEBL is to elevate the league’s standards, enhance player relations, and foster the sport’s growth in Belize and beyond. The BEBL is excited to welcome Mr. Glen Gill to his new role and looks forward to a future of continued excellence and innovation under his leadership.”
