Nighthawks team up with USA Basketball

ANNANDALE – The Northern Virginia Community College men’s basketball team has signed on to assist at the USA Basketball Coach Academy this weekend at Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C.

The Nighthawks are going to serve as on court demonstrators working with coaching guest speakers from all levels across the country.

“It’s an amazing opportunity anytime we can get involved with an organization as prestigious as USA Basketball,” said head coach Mike Abdeljabbar.

Academy sessions teach coaches of all levels the USA Basketball curriculum for a proper skill development path to teach basketball to children of all ages and ability levels.

USA Basketball formed in 1974 as Amateur Basketball Association of the United States of America, and works throughout the country with NCAA, NJCAA, NABC and NFSHSAA (National Federation of State High School Athletic Associations) coaches.

“It’s also a great way to expose the program to many local coaches that will be observing the clinic sessions this weekend,” Abdeljabbar said.
