Youth basketball coaches will have the opportunity to attend nine USA Basketball Coach Academies Presented by Nike throughout the United States in 2017.

USA Basketball Coach Academies provide live training for a USA Basketball Coach License, on and off the court presentations from respected guest speakers, Nike/USA Basketball gift items, catered meals and networking time.

The first USA Basketball Coach Academy in 2017 will take place at Joliet Catholic Academy in Illinois (1200 N. Larkin Ave., Joliet, IL 60435) on Sunday, Feb. 12. The cost to attend the Joliet Coach Academy is $110. Registration and more information are available at: bit.ly/ChiCoachAcad.

USA Basketball also will conduct Coach Academies in: Los Angeles on April 22-23; Boston on May 6-7; New York from May 20-21; Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on June 24-25; Cleveland from Aug. 5-6; Las Vegas from Aug. 18-20; Memphis on Sept. 9-10 and Houston on Sept. 23-24.

More information, including registration pages, full details and frequently asked questions, can be found online at: bit.ly/USABCoachAcademies.

USA Basketball recently launched a program that allows the purchase of a gift voucher to help send a coach to an academy. Vouchers are available in increments of $25 up to the full cost of the academy.

To obtain a gift voucher, email USA Basketball at register@usabasketball.com with your first name, last name, type of voucher and the quantity of vouchers you would like to purchase. More information is available at usab.com/coachvoucher.

The USA Basketball Coach Academy is designed to provide coaches valuable insight and education on how to teach the game of basketball to young people, as well as how to implement fun, safe and feasible programming throughout various organizations (i.e., schools, recreation centers, clubs and leagues).

Coaches learn the USA Basketball curriculum to impart a proper skill development path while teaching the game to players of all ages and ability levels. Additionally, guest speakers focus on areas of expertise and deliver sessions on best practices among coaches and administrators both on and off the court. Attendees will leave the Academy with the ability to become USA Basketball Youth Development licensed coaches.

Sessions at the USA Basketball Coach Academy feature a variety of styles of teaching including: lectures, panel discussions, on court basketball instruction and off court coaching techniques and life skills training. During breakouts, coaches have a choice of sessions to attend based on what topics most interest them and best suit their program or team needs. All options offer comprehensive education, taught either on or off the court.
