Basketball Coaches

Coaches and assistant coaches are needed each year for our teams. The basketball league has about 28 teams each year, and it wouldn't be successful without the dedication, knowledge and time given to the program by all our amazing volunteers.

If you are interested in coaching, please indicate it on the space provided on your players form. If you do not have a player in the league or would like to contact us to coach, please email us at recreation@northamptonma.gov.

We provide training via the National Youth Sports Coaches Association (NYSCA) , as well as other means.  Local High School coaches also give a hands on coaches clinic on basketball drills and skills. 

Why should you consider coaching?
  1. You get to spend more time with your child, or if you don't have a child in the program, time with children.
  2. You will feel a sense of pride and accomplishment.
  3. You will teach life long lessons to the players, and you will even learn some yourself!
  4. You'll develop new skills and learn from the children.
  5. You will have fun!
