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 Series

Legacy Series is a NOC program of 4 interviews with influential leaders, striving to leave a legacy of excellence. The online event, specifically for coaches, will be held each Wednesday starting in May 2020 in a weekly webinar format with host Ted Quinn, a special guest, and up to 100 pre-registered participants. The webinar will include an interactive conversation where you can participate through written Q & A on the Zoom platform as we unpack and dive into the legacy-building leadership experience of our guests. The series will also be streamed live to our YouTube Channel at

Registration for Part 3 opens soon.

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. So each year we partner with Chick-fil-A, our premier corporate sponsor, to host the 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 Coaches 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.

The 2020 Legacy Summit has been cancelled. Please check back later for 2021 date.

“This summit is the most valuable developmental session I have attended in years.”
Earl Grant, NCAA Head Basketball Coach

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.

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 has a new name and 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.
