“The RSBA methods for teaching the team warm-up and the transition game dramatically improved our team’s athleticism and ability to make good decisions playing in space and at tempo.”
- Chance Veasey, MPLS Lakers

Rising Stars Basketball Academy coaching clinics are designed to provide youth basketball coaches with valuable information and tools on how to teach the game of basketball. 

The clinic will be delivered in a split format, with a virtual clinic and live option during our Rising Stars Basketball Academy sessions covering four teaching units. Each unit 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 in a team practice setting. 

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.
