The KS Coaching clinic will feature keynote speakers Allison and Mike McNeill.  This clinic is a must see for all youth, high school, and club basketball coaches.  Allison and Mike will deliver age appropriate practice plans, skill development, decision making breakdowns, modified games and a coaching philosophy and pathway that provides sequential progressions in helping coaches, players, and teams to develop the fundamental skills, concepts, and principles of play needed for basketball excellence. 

This dynamic coaching duo are well known throughout the world not only for their role in leading the Canadian Women's National Basketball Team to an 8th place finish at the 2012 London Olympics, but as importantly, for their work in developing a pathway to basketball excellence for Canada Basketball's Youth Long Term Development (YLTD) Program. 

The Canadian YLTD under Allision and Mike has catapulted both male and female Canadian basketball players to national, international, and professional excellence and success.  Allison and Mike have given numerous coaching clinics throughout the US, Canada, and Europe.  The combined experience of these two coaches ranges over 60+ years of teaching, coaching, mentoring, and excelling:
