Suffield Academy to host Basketball Coaches Clinic


April 24, 2014
SUFFIELD, Conn. – The 2014 New England Basketball Coaches Clinic (NEBCC) for basketball coaches of all levels will be hosted by Suffield Academy on April 27 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the Suffield Academy campus.

Jeff Depelteau, Suffield Academy boys’ varsity basketball coach, launched the NEBCC Clinic. The second annual NEBCC features: former UConn head coach and Naismith Hall of Famer Jim Calhoun; USA Nike Hoop Summit Team Coach Mike Jones of DeMatha HS (Md.), owner of Stronger Team and strength and conditioning coach Alan Stein of DeMatha HS (Md.); Jim Boone of Delta State University (Miss.); and Bob Walsh of Rhode Island College. The clinic concludes with a question and answer session between attendees and the panel of experts.

“Coach Calhoun is a name that everyone recognizes, but all speakers on April 27 are masters of their craft,“ Depelteau said. “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.”

Depelteau continued, “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,” he concluded.

Space is limited, and advanced registration is highly recommended. Advance ticket prices are $100 per individual and $90 per person for staff of 3 or more. Tickets at the door are $125 per person, subject to availability.
