If you're up for mentoring a new guy along and showing him the ropes, just reply.   I will maintain the list...

Here are the coaches willing to mentor, just click on whichever name looks good and in the bottom left hand corner there is a button that says "send a sitemail."  You can ask them any questions you want, including incredibly personal and inappropriate ones, although those may not be answered.

I am looking for a mentor, have experience playing GD.

For the guys asking for mentors, i strongly suggest you reach out to a mentor.  Not a whole lot of the mentors check this list, so I would find one who is in the same world as you and sitemail them.

I'm willing to mentor someone. Just send me a sitemail.

I'm willing to mentor.  I have no NC's, but when it comes to turning a trash program (at DIII at least) into one that consistently makes the postseason within 2-3 seasons, that seems to be my specialty.

Looking for a mentor, played this several years ago but i forgot mostly everything I used to do.

Newb here - and I have a couple questions about running half court press/man-to-man defense. Any mentors out there have success with it that have time to answer a few questions?

Let me know. Thanks!

not a newbie...... but could def use some help wit my boys in Crum....... trying to get my coaching resume back to the better portion of it....

I'm happy to mentor and exchange ideas on how to win.  I've not won a NC in any worlds yet (other than the NIT version), but I can teach you the basics and how to build a program with an A prestige.  I have much more experience in division II and III.  I would also love to speak with anyone who has won a championship and is willing to share some secrets to help me get over the hump and take my programs to the next level.

i have reached out to mutiple to no avail, is this list current? and if your a mentor reading this, would like a little advice if your willing to help!!!
5/19/2012 4:24 PM
A little advice to those wanting to be mentored: when you sitemail someone who you would like to mentor you, please do not just say "mentor me" or "give me tips to get better."  Rather, come to your mentor with specific questions, you will learn a lot more if you create a two-way dialogue instead of just saying "teach me."

I suggest you pick a mentor and ask  specific questions. I was a 20 year real world retired coach and was going to try this for one season. My team went 23-7,won the
Conference Tournament and went to the NT with 3 seniors and a C- Prestige. I will shortly be in 3 worlds and hanging around for a while. I'm hooked.

A large part of my first season success was because of a mentor on this list. I can't give his name because he is probably swamped already,  but I probably would not have made it past the first year wiithout him. Thank you for starting this thread. Coaches, use these mentors. They will definitely make you better.
