The Valparaiso University women’s basketball program will host its 17th annual Fall Coaches’ Clinic on September 23-24 at the Athletics-Recreation Center.  The event will feature three collegiate head coaches as well as the Crusader women’s coaching staff.

Joe McKeown, the women’s head coach at Northwestern, will give a presentation on zone defense.  He has been at Northwestern for three years and led the Wildcats to back-to-back WNIT appearances.

Harry Perretta, the women’s head coach at Villanova, will present on set plays.  He has won more than 600 collegiate games and is his 34th year with the Wildcats.

Doug Porter, from Olivet Nazarene, will speak on his school’s offense and defense.  He is a six time conference Coach of the Year and is approaching 300 career victories.

The cost of the clinic is $100 with multiple coaches from the same school eligible for various discounted prices.  There is also a one-day option for the clinic.  Early registration before September 16 will result in a $10 discount per coach.  For more information or to register, contact Julie Brinson at 219.464.5146 or Julie.brinson@valpo.edu.
