USA Basketball Coach Academies, initiated in 2015, provide valuable insight and education to basketball coaches and administrators. Academy sessions impart the USA Basketball curriculum for a proper skill development path to teach the game to children of all ages and ability levels. Guest speakers focus on areas of expertise to present on basketball and leadership topics applied both on and off the court.

"USA Basketball Coach Academies have proven to be beneficial and impactful events, because they bring together coaching philosophies and player development skills and drills that apply to all levels of basketball,” said Jay Demings, USA Basketball Youth & Sport Development director. “This is our fifth year of coach academies, and it has been important to USA Basketball to continually improve the experience for everyone who attends. Each academy includes knowledgeable and diverse speakers, the information is provided in a variety of formats and participants are encouraged to grow their network and develop professional relationships with one another.”

USA Basketball Coach Academies feature a multi–day format with presentations led by USA Basketball staff and guest speakers in coaching and leadership positions.

Attendees will have networking opportunities to meet and socialize with one another, as well as with speakers. In addition, USA Basketball and Nike gift items will be provided to all registered attendees.

Sessions at a USA Basketball Coach Academy feature a variety of styles of teaching, including player demonstrations, lectures, panel discussions, on court basketball instruction and off court coaching techniques and life skills training. 

Attendees must be at least 18 years old to register. More information is available online.
