COACHING CLINICS


In 2018, Calgary Minor Basketball (CMBA) implemented that all U11, U13 and U15 coaches and assistant coaches participate in CMBA's Coaching Clinics every two years.  AMBA teams play within CMBA, therefore, this requirement extends to all U13, U15 & High School (U18) AMBA coaches as well.  The mandatory training consists of both on-court training and a theory session.  If you have volunteered as a coach or assistant coach, or are thinking of volunteering this year, please be aware that you will need to register and complete this training if you did not complete it last year.  Coaches are welcome to take the training every year if they would like.

  • There are 3 levels of training: Essentials, Intermediate & Advanced.  All sessions consist of a 3-hour theory class and a 3-hour on-court class.
    • If you have never taken CMBA training, please register in Essentials.
    • If you have taken the Essentials training last year, register in Intermediate.
    • If you took Intermediate training last year, register in Advanced.

Coaches Exempt from CMBA On-Court 3 Hour Clinic Sessions must be Certified in one of these 3 NCCP Levels (ALL COACHES - regardless of previous training - MUST TAKE THE THEORY CLASS):

  • NCCP Learn to Train
  • NCCP Train to Train
  • NCCP Train to Compete
