Coach Bill Napolitano (Coach Nap) has been coaching and developing players in Howard County, MD for the past 15 years. His focus is developing youth players into high school level players and promoting basketball in the Howard County area. During the 2010-2011 season, more than 50 players who trained with Coach Nap played either Varsity or JV basketball. In addition, he works with high school players to help them excel at the high school level and attain the skills necessary to be successful at the college level. Last summer, his HCYP Elite 17u Division I AAU team, comprised of local Howard County players, won the MD State 17U Championship and placed 3rd in the Nation at the AAU Division I National tournament out of 250 teams. Most of his players from this team are moving on to play college basketball, including two receiving NCAA Division I scholarships. Five of those players made All Met, while more than 10 of Coach Nap’s players were selected All County or All Conference.
