The Rising Coaches Conference – July 5-7 – Marian University (IN)

A must-attend conference for young and aspiring coaches. The Rising Coaches Conference is the ONLY conference geared towards professional & personal development for the coaching profession. The 2016 Conference will take place from on July 5-7 at Marian University in Indianapolis, IN. The cost of the conference is only $125 which includes Registration fee, the Socials, and your meals during the conference. Current assistant coaches and NBA personnel once attended this conference as high school coaches, managers, GAs, VCs, or Dir. of Ops, and learned the business in a way that no one else can teach. 

The conference is once again an opportunity for support staffers, young basketball coaches, and administrators to get out and network with their peers for 3 days in a relaxed setting, while learning the ins and outs of the business from some of the best coaches and administrators in the country. We advise ALL young coaches to attend. 

This conference feature socials, speaker segments from some of the top head and assistant coaches in the country, networking opportunities, and a dinner. In addition to professional development and networking, the conference strives to work on personal development as well for these aspiring coaches.

Established in 2010 as a grassroots company and the only organization for such an audience, we aim to facilitate the learning, growth, and networking opportunities within the coaching profession by providing a platform via our Annual Conference, Final Four Social, and Social Networks. Rising Coaches Elite (RCE) essentially is a grassroots organization for support staff members (Director of Basketball Operations, Video Coordinators, Graduate Assistants, Student-Managers, etc.) in college basketball. Although we do not limit our attendees and reach to be solely that niche market, our goals are to impact that specific generation of college basketball coaches. For the past few years, RCE has become one of the most influential companies for young college basketball coaches with a Social Media following of over15,000 Twitter followers and thousands of copies of our Official Conference Notes being downloaded every year.
