Buffalo Youth Advantage Basketball Coaches to Receive SUNY Training

Russ Kingsbury, director of the Buffalo Youth Advantage Basketball program, has scheduled a coaching certification course with the SUNY Youth Sports Institute for Thursday, September 16th.  The class will be held at the Expressway Assembly of God Church located at 260 Eggert Road in Buffalo.  The presentation is set to begin at 6:00pm and is expected to last 2.5 hours.  Tim Donovan, Director and Founder of the SUNY Youth Sports Institute, will be the Instructor teaching Thursday evening’s course.

The Buffalo Youth Advantage Basketball program is associated with the Wellness Institute of Greater Buffalo & Western New York.  The program attracts youth of all ages and holds basketball leagues in the summer, fall, and winter months.  Sportsmanship is a core value of Buffalo Youth Advantage Basketball and the program promotes good conduct on and off the court.  Director Russ Kingsbury is excited for their coaches to certify with the SUNY Youth Sports Institute as the SUNY curriculum promotes similar values.

The SUNY Youth Sports Institute expects to add 15+ coaches to its list of over 6,000 certified members Thursday.  If you are interested in becoming a SUNY Youth Sports Certified Coach you can register online for this course at the cost of $20 or find future training dates at http://www.youthsportsny.org/eregistration.html.
