Registration for the IBCA 2017 Statewide Fall Clinic has begun! Speakers include Chris Collins (Northwestern), Nancy Fahey (Illinois), Brad Underwood (Illinois), Bruce Weber (Kansas State), Phil Martelli (St. Joseph), Dan Muller (Illinois State), Jay Spoonhour (Eastern Illinois), Steve Brooks (St. Francis), Scott Thompson (Coaches vs. Cancer), Paul Biancardi (ESPN) and more to be announced!

The clinic will be held at Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, IL on Sunday & Monday, September 10th & 11th, 2017.  

We use this Sunday-Monday format to accommodate basketball coaches who also coach a Fall Sport. With this format, you can still make it back for practice on Monday afternoon.

The clinic cost is only $50 for an Individual and we offer multiple coach discounts for coaches from the same school.

All attendees must become IBCA members, but that is a separate process (and there is now a staff rate for that as well). All IBCA Memberships now run from August 1 - July 31 regardless of when you register. Staff memberships allow you to enroll up to 15 coaches from your school!

***You will register for membership separately from the clinic, but can add it to the same cart***

Please register in advance as we may not be able to take walk-ins this year. In order to guarantee your free gift, you must be registered by September 8th!

PAY FOR THIS CLINIC, THE REST ARE FREE!  That's right, with your paid IBCA Membership, you gain free access to our Regional Clinics (dates and locations listed on the IBCA home page)!
