Wooden Legacy Award

Each year the John Wooden Foundation and the National High School Basketball Coaches Association (NHSBCA) partner with state associations to present the Wooden Legacy Award to one male and one female high school basketball coach from each state.

Recipients must be an accomplished basketball coach who also served as an outstanding educator. Their excellence on the court, in the classroom, and in the community must embody the characteristics of John Wooden - Excellence, Longevity, Character, Leadership and Service.
