Become A Basketball Coach

Want to coach basketball, or are you a coach looking to improve your skills? Come see what Hoopstarz is all about in our coaching workshops, and get introduced to our I.D.E.A.L. Coaching Philosophy & I.D.E.A.L. Training Method through both classroom and interactive on-court skills training.

Participants will learn how to embody the 7 Essential Traits of a Great Youth Basketball Coach, including tips on how to achieve great communication and positive leadership. This workshop is a great fit for high-school, college, and junior college athletes, as well as parents or community members who are interested in becoming a basketball coach.

Our coaching workshops include both classroom sessions and interactive skills classes. We also invite some of our Hoopstarz students, giving you a first-hand look at how a Hoopstarz class is run.

Some participants will be invited to apprentice with us, with the goal of becoming an Assistant or Head Coach during our Basketball Camps, Skills Classes and Winter Basketball League. If you are looking for an exciting coaching opportunity, don’t miss our next workshop!

See you on the court!

Attending one of our coaching courses and workshops DOES NOT guarantee your eligibility to coach for Hoopstarz.  Once you have taken the workshop the next step would be to gain further work experience.  This is done through “Shadow” Coaching.  You would work directly under one of our Head Coaches who is certified and have been with us for 2+ years.  After you have completed  the “Shadow” Coaching requirement you would be considered for a paid coaching position.  Before the start of a paid position you will be required to pass a reference and backround check.
