In May of 2008 I attended the NIKE Villa 7 Basketball Coaches Consortium, directed by VCU on NIKE’s Oregon campus. The Villa 7 started on the Men’s side in 2005 and 2007 for the Women’s assistants.
It is a phenomenal opportunity to meet other coaches and administrators, as well as hear first hand accounts of what it was like for a wide variety of coaches transition from assistant to head coach. Our featured speaker was Mack Brown, Texas Football Coach. If you haven’t heard Coach Brown speak – do it, he’s tremendous.
I have included my notes: NIKE VILLA 7 CONSORTIUM
Villa 7 is “INVITE ONLY”, but this past year they started Villa 6 – a program designed for the younger assistants just beginning their career.
If you are looking to improve and move on in the profession – this is a must.
