Coaches announced for NCAA College Basketball Academies

One Shining Moment | 2023 NCAA tournament

INDIANAPOLIS — The NCAA has announced the roster of coaches that will be a part of the Individual Pathway of the 2023 NCAA College Basketball Academy in Memphis, Tennessee, taking place July 24-31.

Academy coaching staffs will be composed of Divisions II and III, NAIA and junior college men’s and women’s college basketball coaches and high school coaches. For the men’s academy, the coaches were selected by the National Association of Basketball Coaches in coordination with the NCAA. On the women’s side, the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association facilitated the process for member coaches to apply to work the academy.

The College Basketball Academy for men will be held July 24-27, while the academy for women will be July 28-31. The College Basketball Academy is the only event NCAA Division I coaches are permitted to attend for evaluation purposes during this period. 

The academies will provide prospective men’s and women’s student-athletes a sample of the college basketball experience. These developmental summer academies pair high-level basketball competition with life skills instruction. 

In addition to playing in games, participants and their parents or chaperones will attend life skills courses about NCAA eligibility and compliance; the recruiting process; name, image and likeness opportunities; agents; the Transfer Portal; and the pathway to professional basketball opportunities.  

Prospective men’s and women’s basketball student-athletes can participate in the NCAA College Basketball Academies by qualifying via one of three pathways: 

  1. The National Pathway includes: USA Basketball's under 17 3x3 junior national team trials and training camp, as well as Canada Basketball's NextGen national team training camp (junior national team training camp). USA Basketball and Canada Basketball will select participants for each of their events in this pathway.  
  2. The Team Pathway features the U.S. Open Basketball Championships at the NCAA College Basketball Academy, which is USA Basketball's premier 5-on-5 youth national championships. Twenty-four rising 11th grade and 24 rising 10th grade travel teams will earn the right to participate in the U.S. Open Basketball Championships via USA Basketball-approved qualifying events. 
  3. In the Individual Pathway, NCAA Division I basketball head coaches will be able to vote to select up to 400 players from the classes of 2024, 2025 and 2026 for both the men's and women's academy to be placed on teams and compete in games.
