WILMINGTON, North Carolina - UNCW men's basketball coach Buzz Peterson will be joined by other top hoops strategists around the country in late September when one of four fall Nike Championship Basketball Clinics is conducted at Trask Coliseum.
The clinic is open to coaches at all levels and is designed to provide insight into all aspects of the game. It will run from Friday through Sunday, Sept. 21-23, and costs $125 for online registration and $150 for on-site registration.
Coaches can register online at www.basketballcoach.com or request a registration brochure and pay via mail by calling (503) 671-3041.
In addition to Peterson, the staff includes former NBA and NCAA coach Stan Van Gundy, former NBA player and coach Bill Cartwright, Bob Huggins (West Virginia), Don Casey (former NBA player and coach) and Chris Mack (Xavier). Other speakers include former UNCW basketball standout and skill development specialist Ganon Baker, strength and conditioning coach Alan Stein and Spencer Wood, a speaker who concentrates on mental toughness.
"We've been in North Carolina before and we're looking forward to coming back," said Ed Janka, director of Nike Championship Basketball Clinics. "The clinic is a great opportunity for coaches to learn from their peers in a relaxed setting. We believe it will be beneficial to all coaches."
In addition to the clinic in Wilmington, Nike will hold sessions in Omaha, Neb., Cleveland, Ohio, and Chicago, Ill.
