Events for Coaches

Nations of Coaches hosts multiple events to support, equip, and encourage college mens’ basketball coaches. Through these events, we serve thousands of coaches across all divisions.

Nations of Coaches Legacy Summit

There are a lot of leadership events out there, but few are designed to meet the unique needs of college basketball coaches. That is why Nations of Coaches hosts the annual Legacy Summit.

With world-class speakers from athletics and the corporate world, as well as dynamic workshops and fellowship with coaches from around the country, the Legacy Summit helps coaches reorient their life and basketball program around what matters most – and implement a vision for how they’ll lead their team to a higher level of play.

More information for the 2022 Legacy Summit will be available by January 2022.

“This summit is the most valuable developmental session I have attended in years.”

Earl Grant, NCAA Head Basketball Coach

Game-Changer Marriage Retreat


Every year, coaches and their spouses are invited to enjoy the beautiful outdoors, good fellowship and learning, and some much-needed alone time at the WinShape Retreat in Rome, Georgia. This annual event is specifically designed to build into your relationship with your spouse, so your marriage can not only survive, but also thrive throughout the high-pressured basketball season and beyond. The Game-Changer Marriage Retreat is presented by Nations of Coaches and WinShape Foundation.

Location: WinShape Retreat Center, Berry College, Rome, GA – Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, the WinShape Retreat Center is surrounded by forests, meadows, and streams on a 27,000-acre wildlife preserve, about 90 miles from Atlanta.

Dates for the 2022 Game-Changer Marriage Retreat will be posted by January 2022.

Nations of Coaches Legacy Breakfast

Each year during the SEC men’s basketball tournament in Nashville, we host a quick breakfast get-together. The annual Legacy Breakfast features a delicious morning meal, an uplifting message from a coach or business leader, and a short presentation of the mission of Nations of Coaches. Past speakers have included Bryce Drew, Steven Mansfield, Rick Barnes, and Bruce Pearl. This event was not held in 2021 due to COVID restrictions. Watch for 2022 details at the end of 2021.

We will have a special coaching family who will give testimony and insight as they share their personal journey. This event was not held in 2021 due to COVID restrictions.
