State-Wide Coaching Clinic


Clinic Information

Thank you to the over 400 coaches that attended the 2019 IBCA State-Wide Clinic! We look forward to another great State-Wide Clinic next year. There are a number of IBCA Satellite Coaching Clinics offered throughout the fall. Please CLICK HERE to find a location near you!

This year's clinic was held at Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, IL on Sunday & Monday, September 8th & 9th, 2019. It was the first year that the clinic was free to all IBCA members. 

We use this Sunday-Monday format to accommodate basketball coaches who also coach a Fall Sport. With this format, you can still make it back for practice on Monday afternoon.

This year's speakers included Brad Underwood (University of Illinois), Mike McGrath (University of Chicago), Bryan Mullins (Southern Illinois University), Cody Toppert (University of Memphis), Darian DeVries (Drake University), Ron Rose (Illinois Wesleyan University), Forrest Larson (Take it to the Rim Basketball), Paul Sather (North Dakota), Jenny Baranczyk  (Drake University) Steve McClain (University of Illinois at Chicago), Rob Judson (Marquette University), and Brian Wardle (Bradley University).
