This years event will be virtual. Stay tuned for details.
The best way to invest in our kids is to invest in our coaches. Our coaches provide much more to our players than just basketball mentorship so it's important to us that each year we give them the latest tools, insights and sharing opportunities. Our clinic is a great way for all of our coaches to hear from speakers, discuss relevant topics, ask questions and get set up with everything they need for a successful season.
We're thrilled to partner with Minnesota Youth Athletic Services (MYAS) for this years clinic
The 1ST ANNUAL TRUSTED COACHES YOUTH BASKETBALL COACHES CLINIC, presented by the Minnesota Youth Athletic Services and the Mpls Lakers, is designed to provide youth basketball coaches with valuable information and tools on how to teach the game of basketball. The clinic is for youth coaches in grades 3-8 who are preparing to enhance the quality of play during the winter travel season.
The clinic will be delivered in a split format, with presentations and classroom instruction in the morning headlined by collegiate coaches John Tauer and Bryan Bender. The afternoon will feature an on court live demonstration of how to lead a youth basketball practice. The afternoon will also bring together concepts from the morning and provide tangible coaching techniques to take back to your program.
Each breakout session will include a blueprint of techniques introducing and reinforcing the foundational skills to be an effective youth basketball coach, while covering essential elements for developing confident players from grades 3-8. The clinic will not only focus on providing coaches new knowledge and tools for teaching the game, but also techniques for improving communications with players and parents.
