The purpose of the Organization is to promote and develop basketball in the state of New Hampshire.  The organization invests in the professional growth and development of basketball coaches in New Hampshire.  The Organization helps provide greater opportunities and recognition for student basketball players in New Hampshire.

The New Hampshire Basketball Coaches Organization website (http://nhbco.org) is a free service from NHBCO. You do not have to be a current varsity coach or NHBCO member to join the site.


Without joining, you’re still able to view Events and News, we also have the recognition (i.e. state champions, all-state, etc.) as well as Local Tournaments & Scrimmages menu open for viewing. When you join two major options open up to you:

  1. Coaches Area – The coach’s area contains important information that you, as a varsity coach, need to feel connected as a coach.
    1. Your Division Reps is listed in the upper right-hand corner of the coach’s page.  The person listed here is a volunteer from your division that can help answer NHBCO specific questions that you might have and they’ll be the ones that help coordinate important activities that occur throughout the season such as nomination and voting for player of the year, all-state and coach of the year.  We are always looking for volunteers in this space so please think about being a rep in the near future – it will help you foster relationships and it will ensure you get a full understanding of all the great things that NHBCO does for coaches of New Hampshire
    2. Important dates – throughout the season it’s very easy to get caught up in doing your primary job as a varsity coach – developing players, teams and looking to win games along the way.  There are some critical dates throughout the season that are listed in the coach’s area that you should note.  We do send communications throughout the year and your division rep will help with communication as well but the important dates are there as a guide for you.
    3. Division Coaches database – this is probably one of the most important resources for you as a coach.  This database opens the door for you to communicate with coaches throughout the state – this helps with setting up scrimmages, holiday tournaments, get or provide scouting, great mentors throughout the state and in general allow you to get to know others who share your love of coaching.
  2. Development – Part of our mission at the NHBCO is around the development of coaches.  We are super competitive when we’re on the court but we’re also a team when it comes to NH Basketball.  The better we are as individual coaches the more we push one another to get better which makes the product we put on the floor night in and night out more competitive.   The Development area contains information you’ll need to help further your overall education.  Specifically pay attention to NHIAA Coaches Corner and NFHS which both have REQUIRED training that you need to do as a high school coach.
