Editor’s Note: The Jr. NBA and Positive Coaching Alliance have partnered together to create a program designed to honor influential youth basketball coaches and the impactful work that they do for our game. The Jr. NBA Coach of the Year award is given to a youth basketball coach in an NBA team market who is making a positive impact on children by demonstrating outstanding integrity, character, and leadership. You can read about the program here.

The eight semifinalists for the national Coach of the Year award have been announced. These semifinalists were selected because they have not only been successful in bettering their athletes on the court but have also shown that their main focus was to make these athletes better people in their communities.

These coaches have established and fostered meaningful relationships with their athletes and their families over the years, and have incorporated valuable life lessons into every aspect of basketball they coach.
