Dave Ginsberg



Dave Ginsberg has been involved with basketball and education at every level since his graduation from Central Michigan University in 1968. He has taught and coached at Leslie, Battle Creek Central, Grand Rapids Union, Swartz Creek, Flint Central, Traverse City St. Francis, Traverse City West, Northport high schools, and had a 16-year stint as an assistant coach at Central Michigan University. Over his 40+ years in education he has coached five men that played in the NBA, (including All-NBA players Dan Roundfield and Dan Majerle) and served as a principal at Flint Southwestern Academy in Flint, Michigan until his retirement in 2005. Dave has spoken to and worked with thousands of people around the USA in areas of coaching, management, and conflict resolution, and has been known as a passionate and enthusiastic speaker. He has continued to motivate and inspire people wherever he’s worked, and his ability to “tie things together” has been his calling card. In July 2012 Dave was named as the 1st Executive Director of the NHSBCA (National High School Basketball Coaches Association), and in July of 2015, Dave was reassigned to the Secretary/Treasurer position with the NHSBCA when the organization phased out the Executive Director slot. Having coached 40 seasons of basketball, Dave was inducted into the Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan (BCAM) “Hall-of-Honor” in 2016, and then was inducted into the NHSBCA “Court of Honor” in July 2017.
