New and Unique
This clinic will NOT give you the same old stuff you can learn in any coaching book at the store. The information you'll learn will be new, unique, thought provoking, and exactly what any youth coach needs.
Who Should Attend?
Any boys or girls youth basketball coach working with players between the ages of 5 and 13 should attend this clinic. Experienced coaches, beginner coaches, and volunteer parent coaches will get something out of this clinic.
VERY FEW coaches use these tactics -- so there is something here for everyone, both veteran youth coaches and complete beginners.
Parents Can Attend Too
This clinic will also be valuable for parents of youth basketball players who want to better understand their role, learn how youth development works, or if you want to work on your kids' skills at home.

Our Way of Giving Back
This clinic is our way of giving back -- both by helping coaches make a positive impact on their players and by raising money for a good cause.
ALL proceeds go to The Adventure Project, which is an incredible charity organization that helps children and families in Africa and all over the world. Their mission is to end extreme poverty by supporting the world's most effective social ventures. They focus on one humanitarian issue affecting global poverty, & then present innovative, low-cost solutions to help.
Coach Sanderson personally knows the people that run TAP and is very familiar with their organization. So we know that the money raised will be put to very good use!
TAP identifies groups that make the most efficient use of donations. In other words, your money goes directly to helping people with very little, if any, being diverted to "administrative costs". When they say that $42 is enough to provide medical supplies to one expectant mother in Uganda, that's the truth, and that's where the money goes.
TAP is also different from many charities because they are not simply giving things away. Rather, they attempt to provide capital to create money-making ventures that benefit local workers. For example, their current campaign employs women in Uganda to provide medical information and to sell basic supplies at greatly reduced rates to expectant mothers. This is not simply giving money away, but it empowers people, creates jobs, and combats a very serious need in the area. The goal is to provide for extreme needs while helping people escape the cycle of poverty.
The cost of the clinic is an absolute bargain at only $10. All proceeds go to charity.
