MIKE NEIGHBORS TO HEADLINE THE 5TH ANNUAL GARY BLAIR COACHING ACADEMY

Note: Walk-Ups the day of the Academy are welcome.  Simply email me at: rstarkey@athletics.tamu.edu so we can hold you a spot.

We are excited to announce the Mike Neighbors will be our guest speaker at the 5th Annual Gary Blair Coaching Academy.  Mike recently returned "home" to resurrect the University of Arkansas women's basketball program.  He arrives in Fayetteville after an outstanding four-year run at the University of Washington that showcased a four-year record of 98-41 and included a Final Four appearance in 2016.  While coaching the Huskies, Mike recruited and developed the NCAA's all-time leading scorer in Kelsey Plum.

Mike will have two sessions at the Academy.  His on-floor demonstration will be on his "Green Light Shooting Series."  His classroom lecture will deal with the challenges of teaching the iY generation.

This August our team will be playing 4 games in Spain which means the NCAA will allow us 10 practices….we will utilize this as part of our Coaching Academy which means you will see how we teach and prepare and get an inside look at several facets of the Aggie program. 


The Academy will be held at Texas A&M on and will include the following:

     ◄4 Complete Clinic Sessions featuring the entire Aggie Basketball staff and team.

     A guest speaker (to be announced next week)

     Breakfast and Lunch (Dinner will be on your own)

     Jump Drive that will include:
   Segments from the Academy
   Aggie Defensive Drill Notebook
   Aggie Offensive Playbook
   Clinic Notes and Book Notes


All attending the Academy will received an autographed hardback copy of Coach Blair's new book, "A Coaching Life."

We are attaching a flier with detailed information and a form should you want to pay by check.  For those coaches wanting to pay by credit card, simply click on this link.
