First 2017 USA Basketball Coach Academy Set For February 12 In Joliet

  • Date:
    Jan 31, 2017

USA Basketball will conduct its first 2017 Coach Academy Presented by Nike at Joliet Catholic Academy (1200 N. Larkin Ave., Joliet, IL 60435) on Sunday, Feb. 12.

Registration will be from 8-9 a.m., and the Coach Academy will run from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. The cost to attend is $110, which includes 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. Registration and more information are available at: bit.ly/ChiCoachAcad.

The guest speakers are highlighted by Don Showalter – USA Basketball Youth Coach Development Director and an eight-time USA Basketball Developmental Coach of the Year; Samantha Quigley – head women’s basketball coach at the University of St. Francis and a bronze-medal winning USA Basketball assistant coach at the 2015 FIBA Americas U16 Championship and 2016 FIBA U17 World Championship; Mike McGrath – head men’s basketball coach at the University of Chicago; and Dawn Smyth – a coach education and development manager for Canada Basketball.

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.

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.
