WHERE CHAMPIONS ARE BUILT

Sam Vincent achieved championships at every level of his career as a professional athlete.  After leaving the court as a player, Sam has continued his journey, literally, coaching around the world and on the highest level as an NBA coach.  He successfully created new international programs with the NBA including the first Basketball Without Borders and the first Jr. NBA league in the Middle East. Recently, an exciting new chapter has begun focused on basketball development for youth and volunteer coaches in the U.S. abroad.  Global Coach Academy is born out of an exciting partnership with the AAU and offers training and life skills programs that infuse Sam’s extensive knowledge and experience.  We look forward to meeting you on the court.
