December 13, 2012 / Basketball
BROOKFIELD, Wis. – The Team Sports Division of Lessiter Publications is pleased to announce a new partnership agreement with Nike Championship Basketball Clinics, headquartered in Solon, Ohio.

Winning Hoops (which the Lessiter Team Sports Division was built around and now includes Coach And Athletic Director and The Real AAU Basketball), will be delivering year-round content to all coaches attending any of the 10 Nike Championship Basketball Clinics in 2013.

For the first time in 2013, each attendee will receive a full-year subscription to Winning Hoops ($44.95 value) and a CD-ROM of Winning Hoops’ just-released BASKETBALL FORMS book ($34.95 value). The CD-ROM contains a full collection of 93 of the best forms/templates for basketball coaches, covering everything from overall program organization, coaches’ evaluations, players’ evaluations, practice plans, game management, scouting reports, season review, off-season forms and more.

“We’re happy to work with Winning Hoops and Lessiter Publications’ Coach And Athletic Director and AAU Basketball titles on bringing additional year-round value to the coaches who invest in their knowledge by attending clinics,” says Ed Janka, Director of Nike Championship Basketball Clinics. “Winning Hoops has been a longtime supporter of our clinics and the expansion of our partnership brings great benefit to our common customers — the coaches dedicated to learning from the best of the best as they improve their basketball instruction skills.”

In addition to the subscription and BASKETBALL FORMS CD, the partnership involves additional clinic promotion by Lessiter’s Team Sports Division, drawing upon the firm’s experience in operating and promoting more than 33 national events in the company’s history.
