Notes from the NHSBCA

The National High School Basketball Coaches Association is very concerned with the current status of amateur/youth basketball in the United States and is taking the stand that varsity high school basketball coaches have the unique platform, opportunity and responsibility to be leaders, connectors and communicators in amateur basketball in the United States. The following two documents illustrate what they feel is the present status of youth/amateur basketball, and suggestions for coaches to take a leadership role to positively influence the youth basketball player.

Regional Foul Shooting Championships January 7th

The Maine Association of Basketball Coaches has announced the sites and contact information for January 7, 2018 Foul Shooting Contest. The time is between 10:00 AM and 12:00PM at each site. Each school can send a male and female shooter. No need to sign up just have your shooter and rebounder go to the nearest site. Each participant gets 10 warm ups and then shoots 50 FT. The shooter with the highest total has to stay at their site until a winner is determined. The winners from each region will compete in the state foul shooting championship during the McDonald's All-Star weekend at 8:30 am on March 18, 2018. Good luck and we hope each team will take the time to send a representative. This is a great opportunity for the athletes to represent their schools!
