WBCA Coaches’ Classroom

Coaches' Classroom: supported by the United States Marine Corps

Open to all coaches and staffs (members and non-members) at every level of girls' and women's basketball, these clinics are a great opportunity to learn from some of the top coaches in the country and network with colleagues from your area.

By attending these clinics, participants gain access to top coaches discussing universal coaching topics such as strength & conditioning, performance as well as X’s and O’s. 

**By registering, you agree to follow all policies, rules and guideline associated with these events. Due to COVID-19 protocols and safety, it is strongly encouraged to pre-register for clinics to ensure your spot is secured. Pre-registered guests will be required to show their confirmation email. If you arrive on-site without pre-registering, you will be asked to scan a QR code and register online. To limit contact, the WBCA and/or host institution(s) hosting WBCA events will not provide/accept paper registration forms on-site this year.
