Important Resources, Plans & Documents for Coaches
Resources for upcoming games
These resources are suited for helping coaches prepare for the upcoming games at the start of the season.
As promised at the coaches meeting in September 2008, we are distributing a Coaching Guide specifically for TCYBA coaches based on Basketball Canada’s Athlete Development Model. This resource document gives guidance on the age appropriateness for teaching various individual and team skills. As well, the guide gives suggestions on the sequence in which to teach the various skills. The guide is intended to be read in conjunction with the Steve Nash Coaching Manual which is also available to all TCYBA coaches.
Rules & Policies
As a TCYBA coach, it is important to become familiar with the codes of conduct, the game rules, other assorted rules, and TCYBA policies. These are available here.
The TCYBA encourages all coaches to receive as much coaching training as they can. To this end, the TCYBA will regularly conduct coaching clinics that can be attended by any current coaches in the league at no cost to them, including the Pre-Level 1 clinic.
Coaches wishing to attend NCCP clinics not hosted by the TCYBA will be reimbursed for 50% of the cost of the instructional part of the course upon completion of the course and submission of the receipt to the League Coordinator. The other 50% of the instructional part of the course will be reimbursed after the coach starts coaching a team during the following basketball season. Coaches planning to apply for funding must confirm their intentions with the Coaching Director prior to registering for the course to ensure that the course is one recognized by the League and to confirm the portion of the course’s cost that will be covered by the League.
