Stan Waterman (Sanford School, Del.) will serve in his third USA Basketball coaching assignment as a court coach at the 2018 USA Basketball Men's Junior National Team October Minicamp.

Previously, he was a gold medal winning assistant coach for the 2018 USA Men’s U17 World Cup Team and the 2017 USA Men's U16 National Team.

Waterman completed his 27th season (1991-92 to present) as the boys basketball head coach at Sanford School in Delaware in 2017-18, where he has been the dean of students since 1993 and also is the assistant athletic director.

In 2017-18, Waterman led Sanford to a 17-6 record and the Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association state tournament semifinals. And in 2016-17, Waterman led Sanford to a 19-9 record and the DIAA state tournament quarterfinals.

In 2016, after leading his team to a sixth state championship, he was honored by the Delaware Sportswriters and Broadcasters Association as the recipient of the Tubby Raymond Award as the Delaware Coach of the Year.

“It’s an honor to be selected as an assistant coach for the 2018 USA U17 team,” Waterman said. “The USA Basketball organization is amazing, and I am thrilled to be a part of it.

“It was humbling to work alongside and with coach Showalter and coach Fitch. They are incredible people first and even more impressive as coaches and teachers of the game. Having the opportunity to get to know them through last summer's experience, will only strengthen and improve our working relationship. Coach Showalter has provided guidance and leadership for this program for many years. His commitment to excellence and development has me excited about the upcoming training camp and tournament."

He also led Sanford to state titles in his inaugural campaign in 1992, in 2002 and for three-straight years from 2010-2012.

As a player at Howard Career Center High School, he helped his team reach the state championship game in 1981 and the semifinals in 1983.

He played Division I basketball at the University of Delaware and majored in sociology before becoming an assistant coach at Sanford for one season in 1990-91.
