Celebrating Our 71st CLINIC and ALL-STAR GAMES in 2019
The North Carolina Coaches Association was founded in 1948 by Robert B. Jamieson, coach and athletic director at Greensboro
Senior High School, and Smith Barrier, sports editor of the Greensboro Daily News. Their
intent was to promote the growth of the high school coaching profession.
The first NC Coaching Clinic and East-West
All-Star Games were held in July of 1949.
From its modest beginning, membership in the Association has grown to over 6,000 and the
Coaching Clinic is recognized as one of the premier multi-sports clinics in the country. Attendance regularly tops 8,500.
The first All-Star games were in football and mens basketball. Womens
basketball was added in 1975 and both mens soccer
and womens soccer became part of All-Star Week in 1992.
