KING to host CHAMPS coaching clinics

In the world of sports, improving is the name of the game. This goes for not only players but coaches as well. There is a reason why the best coaches are relevant year after year: they are constantly learning and adapting to the game. Kids in the Game is excited to partner with CHAMPS (Cooperative, Healthy, Active, Motivated and Positive Students) this March to provide free coaching clinics to middle school basketball coaches. The clinics will lead into an exciting 2017 Spring CHAMPS basketball season beginning in the end of March.


Coaches at participating CHAMPS programs are able to participate in the FREE clinics. The clinics will feature instructive lectures as well as on-the-court sessions. Participants will gain knowledge on many valuable topics, ranging from philosophy to X’s and O’s. Coaches will also gain experience on practice planning, game management and communication approaches. Additionally, strategies for working with kids with varying backgrounds and experiences will be an important component of the trainings as both CHAMPS and Kids in the Game work in diverse spaces.


Each participant of the coaching clinic will receive printed materials to reference during the clinic as well as to take home and implement during their own practices. Attendees should wear appropriate attire for active participation.

Registration is available on Eventbrite (registration is required). 3 dates are available and coaches are free to sign up for 1 date of their choice. Space is limited, so please sign up early!
