The Jr. Clippers program is designed to support positive coaches in the youth basketball community. We believe coaches have the power to change the world when equipped with the right tools. As a proud partner of the Jr. NBA, we’re happy to offer a series of tools to help you become a more effective coach in your community. “By utilizing the Jr NBA curriculum, coaches can plan and organize practices for any player. If you coach an elite team, start with the All-Star or MVP practice plans. For coaches who are teaching the fundamentals to players who are new to the game, try utilizing the Rookie or Starter practice plans”.
The LA Clippers and The Center for Healing and Justice through Sport (CHJS) recently launched the EVERYDAY LEGEND campaign, a celebratory Coach of the Game initiative to uplift and recognize Jr. Clipper coaches who prioritize meaningful relationships, player development, and inclusive team culture. The initiative will continue all season long.
