As part of their efforts to increase basketball participation, the NBA have teamed up with Coach Core, to provide dedicated basketball coaching clinics across all Coach Core programmes. Delivered by ex-NBA players and highest-level NBA coaches, these clinics provide a fantastic opportunity for apprentices to increase their own participation in basketball, learn from those with significant experience in the game and start to implement additional basketball opportunities within their coaching provision.

In addition to the coaching clinics, the NBA have also provided Coach Core apprentices with the incredible opportunity to attend their London Game.
