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 Men’s Basketball. Women’s Basketball was added in 1975 and both Men’s Soccer and Women’s Soccer became part of All-Star Week in 1992.
