Why enroll in the DHBA Analytics Boot Camp?
Learn about off-the-court career paths in basketball from industry leaders.
We recognize that not everyone will play high school, college, or professional basketball. However, if you love the game of basketball, this is an opportunity for you to stay engaged in the sport and possible career path. This course will teach participants what it’s like to be a video coordinator for the NBA, WNBA, G-League, or at the college level. You will also learn what it takes to pursue these types of careers, as well as other administrative avenues in basketball. You’ll also stay connected with each student for possible networking opportunities in the field of basketball.
Coach Harris and Anwar met as colleagues and division I assistant coaches at Morgan State University in 2006. From there, they fostered a friendship that took them to numerous final 4’s, NBA Summer Leagues, and other professional development opportunities. The primary instructor for this exciting venture is Anwar McQueen. A native of Washington, DC, he played in the PAC 12 at University of California at Berkeley where he starred alongside future NBA legends like Jason Kidd, Lamond Murray and Shareef Abdul Rahim. After his coaching career, he earned his master’s degree in Sport Management and became an executive at HUDL.
The founder of Tech Exposure and Access through Mentoring (TEAM), Anwar is building on two decades of experience in the Bay Area as a technology executive and his own first-hand experience with urban poverty to change the way underrepresented youth view the technology field as a potential home for their talent, ambition and pursuit of social change.
In all four major professional sports and collegiate athletics, minorities are well-represented among players but hold very few administrative or coaching positions. To address this inequity, the Del Harris Basketball Academy will sponsor a select group of minority applicants who sincerely wish to pursue this opportunity but are unable to afford the $260 fee. If you would like to sponsor a deserving black youth or team, please contact us directly.
