Basketball: 3rd Annual Basketball Coaches' Clinic Set for October 20th

NORTHFIELD, Vt. – Sponsored by the men's and women's programs, the third annual NORWICH UNIVERSITY BASKETBALL COACHES' CLINIC will be held on Sunday, October 20th, in the gymnasium of Andrews Hall on the Norwich campus.

Outstanding past guest speakers at this clinic have included:  Tom Brennan, legendary men's head coach at the University of Vermont; Jeff Brown, head men's coach at Middlebury College; Greg Eckman, head women's coach at NVU-Johnson; and David McLaughlin, head men's coach at Dartmouth University. 

This year's clinic will feature coaches that all have a strong connection to the Norwich University basketball family as Marc Kuntz, of Post University, and Allison Flynn, recently of Plymouth State University, will join Norwich head coaches Paul Booth and Mark Zacher, and their staffs, as guest clinicians. 

Marc Kuntz has been the head coach of the men's basketball program at Post University in Waterbury, CT since 2016.  He began his coaching career as the assistant coach and recruiting coordinator here at Norwich.  He then went on to serve as an assistant and then head coach at Wilmington College in Ohio, an assistant coach at UMass Lowell for seven years, and an assistant coach at the University of New Hampshire for four years.  At each stop, success has followed Coach Kuntz on his coaching journey.    Allison Flynn served as the head women's basketball coach at Plymouth State University in Plymouth, NH for the past four seasons.  In those four seasons, Coach Flynn recorded four-times the number of conference wins as the program had won in the five seasons prior to her arrival.  Her efforts were rewarded by being named as the Little East Conference Coach of the Year for the 2016-2017 season.  A graduate of Norwich University, she has also served as an assistant coach at St. Michael's College and St. Anselm College. 

 

Also speaking at the clinic will be Norwich women's basketball head coach Mark Zacher, and members of his staff, and Norwich men's basketball head coach Paul Booth, and members of his staff.  Both head coaches are the winningest coaches in Norwich University history with a total of 424 wins with their respective programs between them.  Both coaches bring a wealth of basketball experience, knowledge, and teaching.  In addition, their programs are staffed with talented and knowledgeable assistants. 

The clinic will be held on the gymnasium court in Andrews Hall on the Norwich University campus and will run from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM.  The cost for the clinic is $25.00 for a single coach or $40.00 for an entire coaching staff.  If pre-registered before October 15th, a free lunch will be included for everyone on staff.
