Youth Coach Academy: Full Details

USA Basketball Youth 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). The Academy will be presented in a one-day format with a kickoff reception held the night before. Coaches will learn the USA Basketball youth curriculum to impart a proper skill development path while teaching the game to players. Additionally, higher-level guest speakers will focus on areas of expertise and deliver sessions on best practices among coaches and trainers. Attendees will leave the academy with the ability to become USA Basketball Youth Development licensed coaches.

The Inaugural USA Basketball Youth Coach Academy will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada on August 12-13, 2015.

USA Basketball Youth Coach Academy will feature a variety of styles of teaching including: lectures, panel discussions, on-court basketball sessions and off-court coaching techniques and life skills training. Coaches may choose from two tracks for panel discussions and on-court sessions based on the athlete’s mastery of basketball and movement skills that the coach teaches. However, both tracks will receive comprehensive knowledge, the ability to network and intermingle, as well as, the opportunity to complete the necessary components to become licensed.

STARS Level Track

*This track is recommended for coaches of elementary and middle schools, recreational teams and leagues. Athletes you coach are learning fundamental movement skills, building overall motor skills and learning basic basketball-specific skills.

STRIPES Level Track

*This track is recommended for coaches of high schools, travel programs and elite clubs. Athletes you coach are building the aerobic base, developing overall basketball skills further, consolidating basketball skills, maximizing fitness and competition preparation and expanding position- specific skills.
