CERTIFICATES

The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) offers a national course for coaches at the interscholastic level. This certification demonstrates the coach’s completion of a series of these courses, which enhances their ability as a basketball coach to better serve the player and the organization.

The Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) is an online program developed by experts, for experts. The PCA certification improves a coach’s ability to coordinate and lead a guiding youth sports program like TBF. Designed to help coaches teach life lessons through sport, the alliance focuses on the development of not only the athlete, but the person as a whole.

At TBF, we are Verified Volunteers. The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) requires all coaches who participate in NCAA-certified events to complete their Basketball Certification System. All of our TBF coaches have passed through strict NCAA requirements, which include a background check and an educational coaching course.

All of our sports trainers are required to have a gold license from the USA Youth Development Certificate Program. This USA Basketball Licensing and E-Learning Program focuses on educating coaches to the fullest while ensuring the safety of the players. The program’s goal is to develop an inclusive basketball community of credible, qualified, and dedicated trainers and administrators all across the USA.
