It's a BONUS Episode of the Four Quarters Podcast, powered by Four Quarters Media!  Host Tyler Bennett is joined by Bobby Mitchell, Head Coach of the UBC Okanagan Heat Women's Basketball program.  Off the top, Bennett and Mitchell discuss the representation, or lack thereof, of Black, Indigenous, or Persons of Colour in coaching and higher administration roles at the U Sports level (13:20).  Then, Mitchell shares how he got his start in coaching, and it came when he least expected it, but he was in the right place at the right time, as the case has been throughout his entire career (29:07).  During that, Mitchell shares how he got his start with Club Basketball (32:28).  From there, Mitchell discusses his mindset when coaching with the Interim Tag ahead of his title during the 2018-19 season, and how that affected his approach to recruiting (45:47).  Then, Mitchell shares the HEAT Way of doing things at UBC Okanagan, and how the Heat have developed a winning culture at UBC Okanagan (55:40).  As things wind down, Mitchell shares his thoughts on the career of Jordan Korol, the debut season of Jaeli Ibbetson, and how they both went underappreciated on a National level last season (1:10:12).  To close, Mitchell and Bennett discuss ways that we can collectively grow the level of coverage in Canada to better respect, admire, and appreciate the game of basketball at both the U Sports and CCAA levels (1:37:12).  (MUSIC: bensound.com)
