The USA Basketball Coach Academy – presented by Nike – will make stops in six cities in 2022, giving basketball coaches the opportunity for professional development that is customized for all experience levels.

Launched in 2015, the USA Basketball Coach Academy is a basketball coaching clinic that provides coaches with practical insight and education on how to teach the game to players of all ability levels. The professional development clinic sessions are implementable for coaches of all levels.

The 2022 season features two formats. The standard Coach Academy for Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Dallas, New York and Orlando, Florida, will consist of a one-day Saturday academy with on and off court sessions, lunch and USA Basketball gear giveaways, as well as an option to add on a Sunday bonus day, which will be limited to just 30 coaches. Registration for a standard Coach Academy is $85 per attendee or $195 if a coach registers for the academy and the add-on Sunday bonus day.

The topics for the bonus day at each of the USA Basketball Coach Academy stops includes USA Basketball National Team pre-practice routines and practice planning, national team film break down, international basketball quick hitters and actions, roundtable discussions and a courtside chat with 10-time USA Basketball gold medal winning coach Don Showalter. Breakfast will be provided on Sunday.

The extended Coach Academy will be highlighted at the Las Vegas event, and that includes a coaches social with dinner, plus two days of on and off court clinics for $205 per attendee.

USA Basketball will kick off the season with its first Coach Academy on May 7 in Los Angeles, with the option to add on the May 8 bonus day for the first 30 coaches who register.
