Tamika Dudley - 2022 Naismith High School Coach of the Year on Creating a Culture of Hard Work, Breaking Down Coach-Athlete Barriers, Parent Relationships, and More.

Coach Forward is an interview-style podcast hosted by Jason Mejeur (Coach J), accomplished Coach, Mentor, and Founder/CEO at MaxOne.

Today, I'm excited to be joined by Tamika Dudley. Coach Dudley is currently the Head Girls Basketball Coach at Sidwell Friends School in Washington DC.

In just her third season at Sidwell Friends, she led the team to a 30-0 record winning the ISL, State, and National titles, which was the first time in the school history for the girls basketball program. The team finished as the #1 ranked team in the country according to ESPN and Max Preps, and Coach Dudley was named the 2022 Naismith Coach of the Year.

Dudley currently coaches 3 FIBA USA gold medalists and 4 players who are nationally ranked in ESPN’s top 25. Dudley also coached and led the school's first-ever National Gatorade player of the year and Naismith player of the year, Kiki Rice. Dudley also coaches her daughter who is the fourth ranked player in the class of 2024.

She has also coached grassroots basketball for the past 14 years. She is passionate about building a culture of hard work, team spirit, and striving for excellence. You won't want to miss this one!
