The Basketball Leadership Committee unites a group of the top NCAA Division I Women’s and Men’s Basketball directors of operations. Representing ten universities and eight conferences, the committee will join in collaboration to effectively and efficiently engage student-athletes, both on and off the court.

The agenda will focus on open discussions and collaboration to drive best practices and share unique use cases for engaging and empowering student-athletes, ultimately encouraging a holistic approach to student-athlete engagement across Division I basketball.

This continues a series of Leadership Committees hosted by Teamworks, with both collegiate and professional groups convening in Durham. Last year, the inaugural Basketball Leadership Committee brought together eleven Division I basketball operations personnel to collaborate on the best practices of running an elite college basketball program.

“How effectively a basketball program adopts technology can make a huge difference in program success,” said Rachel Stockdale, Executive Director of Basketball Operations at North Carolina State University. “Teamworks plays a crucial role in helping me make sure the team communicates efficiently and effectively so our athletes can focus on the big picture. I look forward to working with other members of the Teamworks Family on how we can best engage our athletes and coaches.”

The 2019 class will meet July 17 and 18 at Teamworks Headquarters in Durham, North Carolina. Join the conversation on social media by following #TWLeaders.
