The National Basketball Association and Basketball England are delighted to announce another series of NBA Global Game Coaching Clinics, taking place during the NBA London Game 2019. The NBA, in partnership with Basketball England, have conducted coaching clinics for the past 11 years and these very successful clinics have grown in attendance over the last few years; with over 250 coaches present last year. For 2019, we are expanding the programme - adding a Sunday clinic specifically tailored to coaches and teachers who train young, Under 12 players, with a particular focus on the female game. This event provides a unique opportunity for coaches and teachers to learn from two leading coaches in youth development from Canada, Dawn Smyth & Mike MacKay, along with coaches from the visiting NBA teams - the Washington Wizards and the New York Knicks.
There will be multiple clinic sessions over the three days, with topics and timings detailed below. You will need to reserve a ticket for each day you wish to attend:
