All levels of coaches can benefit from the video learning, resources and community of coaches available on Basketball Immersion. We have NBA, professional, college, high school and youth coaches in our online community. Since we focus a large amount of the learning on how to teach, the concepts and ideas largely connect and transfer for all levels of coaches. All resources are available to all coaches, but there is also a dedicated Youth Coaching Page with drills and concepts specific to coaching youth players. You are a click away from having many of these coaches available to assist you in implementing our drills and concepts with your included access to the collaborative forums as well..
The goal is to provide the best value of any basketball site. The website is organized by different topics so you always have the opportunity to access as much information as you want or target whatever is right for you. To start with, be sure to watch the onboarding video to learn where, and how, you can access the learning resources. The after login menu is very clear and will guide you to videos, courses, forums and masterclasses. Also, create a social platform, join the forums that interest you, and complete the courses outlined.
To develop as a coach you need to make a commitment. This is why we only offer 6 Month or 1 Year Memberships. To stimulate your coaching you need to be investing. For just over $20 a month you can access all the videos, masterclasses, forums, social platforms and courses.
