Suffield, Connecticut— The 2014 New England Basketball Coaches Clinic (NEBCC) for basketball coaches of all levels will be hosted by Suffield Academy on Sunday, April 27th from 9AM to 6PM on the Suffield Academy campus in Suffield, CT. 

Jeff Depelteau, Suffield Academy Boys’ Varsity Head Basketball Coach, launched the NEBCC Clinic . The second annual NEBCC features: former UConn Head Coach and Naismith Hall of Fame coach, Jim Calhoun; USA Nike Hoop Summit Team Coach, Mike Jones of DeMatha HS (MD), Owner of Stronger Team & Strength and Conditioning Coach, Alan Stein of DeMatha HS (MD); Jim Boone of Delta State University (MS); and Bob Walsh of Rhode Island College. The clinic concludes with a question and answer session between attendees and the panel of experts.

Depelteau says “Coach Calhoun is a name that everyone recognizes, but everyone speaking on the 27th are masters of their craft. From Mike, to Alan, to Jim (Boone), to Bob, each one of these coaches has competed and won at the highest level of their leagues and divisions. Coach Boone led his Delta State team deep into the NCAA Tournament this year, as does Coach Walsh every year. DeMatha is a household name in high school basketball because of the work that Mike and Alan have done with their program. Mike has helped lead USA Basketball teams to great success on the world stage as well. It is truly a treat for the spectators to learn from such a great range of coaching minds!”

Depelteau adds “This clinic is going to be great for any coach, no matter what level they coach. All of these coaches are master teachers of the game of basketball. Whether you coach boys, girls, youth, high school, or at the collegiate level, there is going to be something for every coach to learn and take back to their teams at this clinic.”
