Women's Hoops To Hold Coaching Clinic
Aug. 20, 2010
GREENVILLE, N.C. - The East Carolina women's basketball staff will hold its first-annual fall coaching clinic Saturday, September 18, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Minges Coliseum.
The event will cover a variety of topics and is slated to include question and answer sessions with the coaches from the North Carolina High School State Championship game as well as round table discussions.
The cost for attending the clinic is $30, which includes lunch. Prospective attendees must register by Sept. 10.
First-year Pirate head coach Heather Macy is a well-known speaker at clinics around the nation. Her resume includes the prestigious Nike Championship Coaching Clinic, at which she will present her "Inter-State Offense" in October in Cleveland, Ohio.
Before her arrival at ECU, Macy-coached squads at Francis Marion University won the past three NCAA Division II team scoring titles and in five seasons as a college head coach (three at FMU and two at Pfeiffer University), she has compiled a 115-39 record - including back-to-back 27-5 campaigns with the Patriots.
As a whole, the East Carolina staff owns coaching experience at the highest levels. Fred Applin is regarded as one of the finest recruiters in the nation, having constantly built top 25 recruiting classes at North Carolina, Texas and Wake Forest. Ann Hancock was an integral part of the 1994 national championship Tar Heel squad as an assistant coach, while assistant Shay Hayes was a decorated and successful high school head coach in North Carolina before joining her alma mater in May. Additionally, director of basketball operations Carol Sciaretta served as Macy's top assistant the past two seasons at Francis Marion.
