2016 Rising Coaches Elite Conference Notes
The 2016 Rising Coaches Elite Conference Notes are collection of basketball coaching clinic notes from their 2016 conference. I got to know the guys from Rising Coaches Elite in 2010. They established a grassroots organization that would help basketball operations and video coordinators get bigger jobs. It was a great idea and it’s paid off big-time for several members.
The coaches that speak at the 2016 Rising Coaches Elite Conference are down to earth and want to give back to the younger guys. They have taken the conference to another level. It’s a great time to network with other coaches. It brings coaches from all over the country to one location.
Every year, the path to Division 1 coaching ranks gets harder and murkier…. more competitive. Many aspiring coaches use to climb the ladder from graduate assistant or director basketball operations to assistant coach to head coach, many top programs are making less traditional hires these days.
There are only about 1000 Division 1 assistant coaching jobs out there and the best ones are highly competitive.
87 attendees who have been promoted within or have been hired to another D1 school after attending a Conference.
143 attendees who have been promoted within or have been hired elsewhere and are still on staff in college or professional basketball.
14 attendees who have been hired by an NBA team after attending a Conference.
70+ Head Coaches & Assistant Coaches in college basketball who have been speakers at the Rising Coaches Conference over the past 5 years.
28 speakers who received a promotion or changed jobs since speaking at the Rising Coaches Conference.
5 Head Coaches who spoke at the Rising Coaches Conference as Assistant Coaches.
If I was a young coach that is looking to break into college coaching then I would be a active member of the Rising Coaches Elite Conference.
Every off-season (March-September) we receive calls from coaches at all levels (High-Major, Mid-Major, Low-Major, D2, JUCO, NAIA, etc.) asking our advice for candidates for open positions on their staff. Often this is hard to do with a simple resume, so we encourage as many coaches to get as involved with Rising Coaches Elite as possible so we can know the person/coach behind the name!
