Become a Coach


One of the most rewarding things in life is becoming a coach in a youth organization. NJB coaches will help kids learn the fundamentals of basketball. They will also help them learn sportsmanship, teamwork and most importantly respect. Being a Coach at NJB is a great opportunity to give back to your community.

New or returning coaches at NJB will learn everything they need to know at one of our required coaches clinics. At the clinic you will receive a coaching manual, rule book and videos to help coach your team. You will also receive membership benefits, support from your chapter and NJB headquarters.

Every coach must be at least 16 years or older, pay a coaches registration fee and pass a background check. Please familiarize yourself with the Safe Sport Act of 2017.

Remember it’s not always about winning, it is about giving the children an unforgettable experience that will shape the rest of their lives.

Hope you decide to be a coach!
