LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Monterey girls basketball coach Jill Schneider will head to the Czech Republic in early July on behalf of USA Basketball to speak at coaching clinics.  

Schneider is no stranger to representing the USA overseas. She coached the Under 16 and Under 17 girls basketball teams in 2011 and 2012.  She has also been to multiple other countries on behalf of USA Basketball.

Coach Schneider elaborated on what her duties will be on this trip:

"The coaches I'll be speaking to...coach 16 and 17 year olds in their countries. NCAA coaches can't do these kind of clinics because it would be an NCAA violation, so they have to get high school coaches or somebody else who isn't affiliated with the NCAA. We're talking to coaches that will be coaching international teams, U16s and U17s primarily, that's why they're there. It's going to be held in conjunction with the tournament - the U16-U17 tournament so I'm going to get to see our USA team compete for the gold medal while I'm there."

Schneider will head to the Czech Republic on July 2 and will be speaking on Team Defense during her time there.

    Brazil fans have cheered their team in the first and only meeting with players before they travel to the World Cup in Russia, but many others also complained about the squad's lack of contact with local supporters.
