Louisville Women’s basketball coach Jeff Walz has been selected to serve as the court coach for the 2017 USA National Team Training Camp.
This marks Coach Walz fourth USA Basketball assignment. Coach Walz previously served as an assistant coach for the gold-medal 2014 USA U18 National Team and the 2015 USA U19 World Championship Team. He most recently served as the head coach for the gold medal winning 2017 USA U23 National Team.
“It’s quite an honor,” said Walz “In this profession, you sit there when you’re younger, and you watch the Olympic teams and the national teams compete. And then to be fortunate to have Angel (McCoughtry) be a part of it, you ask her: ‘What’s it like? What’s training camp like?’ And then all of a sudden to get asked to come out and be a court coach, it’s humbling, it’s exciting, it’s nerve-wracking all at the same time. You’re going out there to work with the best in the world. So, I’m very honored and excited.”The training camp is scheduled to be held from September 30th – October 2nd in Santa Barbara, California. The camp will identify athletes for future USA National Team events, including the 2018 USA World Cup Team.
