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.
