Step one: A group of parents were frustrated with the lack of professionalism with youth coaches, especially their summer coaches. Parents looked for an organization that offered either training for their coaches, or a place where they could search for qualified coaches. One did not exist, so they decided to start one.
Step two: The group decided they wanted more than just parents designing the program. They formed a team that consisted of school principals, college and university professors, middle and high school teachers, college and high school athletic directors, male and female middle and high school basketball coaches, men's and women's college basketball coaches. Some of the team’s accomplishments are national championships, tournament championships, club championships, national educational awards, and more. The members of this group created an educational curriculum for the training program.
Step three: The parent group decided to align their curriculum with a basketball platform that was in keeping with their goals. The program they chose was The WAVA System which was created by Coach Keith Coleman. Coach Coleman was brought on board to align the curriculum with the training using his basketball system.
Step four: Recruit instructors to train the coaches. This was done for all 50 states. It was important to find highly motivated instructors to teach the curriculum.
Step five: Set up training for new and existing coaches and provide a place for them to be seen and hired.
