MBCA Mentoring Program

"The MBCA Coaches Mentoring Committee was formed to assist and support Varsity Boys Basketball Coaches in Minnesota with the many challenges and occasional difficulties that exist/arise in coaching. The Mentoring Program will provide samples of materials, policies, and handouts that may be useful for coaches to review and use. The program will also provide a list of veteran coaches who are willing to answer questions, provide ideas and feedback, and/or serve in a mentorship capacity if requested. This support is available to both veteran and inexperienced coaches.

Links to “Coaches Resources” and “Coach Mentors” will be created on the MBCA website. Those links on the website and the Coaches Mentorship program will be further explained in a presentation at the MBCA Coaches Clinic in October.  Coaches are encouraged  to contact the MBCA Mentoring Committee Chair-Matt Urbanek, Jordan High School, or their Section Representative  if they have other resources they would like to see included on the site, and/or if they have resources they would like to recommend and/or contribute to the site.”
