- Coach Webb
Coach Walter Webb
Coach Webb is the Founder and CEO of Slam City Management Group (SCMG). Coach Webb started playing basketball at a very young age and attended his first basketball camp at the age of 5. After playing for McNamara High School in Forestville, MD, he played college basketball at Virginia Union and Ferrum College. After college, he was selected to play semi-professional basketball in China. His love for the game continued as he began coaching on the high school level at Riverdale Baptist School (Upper Marlboro, MD). Coach Webb then built two nationally recognized Prep programs where he served as both Athletic Director and Head Basketball Coach: Coastal Christian Academy (Virginia Beach, VA) and Cornerstone Christian School (San Antonio, TX). As a coach, he has won six Boy's and one Girl's National Championship. During his career of coaching prep, he developed two teams each year and managed to obtain a record of 685-35. He was recognized as the 2007 NACA National Coach of the Year. Walt has coached several high school teams: Atlantic Shores Christian School, Fredericksburg Christian School, Trinity Christian School and is currently the head coach at John Champe High School.
Coach Webb has resurrected many young players' careers, and without Coach Webb's help and instruction, their basketball careers would have come to an abrupt end. He has helped good players become great players and has been fortunate enough to enable great players to reach elite status. Being a firm believer in reinforcement, work ethics, character, and strong game knowledge, Coach Webb's tactics are not like traditional coaches. He encourages his players to work on their game and implement what they are working on when playing in an actual contest. He believes in hard work and discipline both on and off the court. He believes in creating strong relationships built on trust and communication. Being both a player and a coach has given Coach Webb an exceptional understanding of the game of basketball. He possesses the ability to motivate his players while teaching them. His passion for the sport, combined with his drive to win and his desire to help young people, make Coach Webb an ideal coach.
Several years ago, Coach Webb moved to Northern Virginia, making Northern Virginia the new Headquarters for Slam City Management Group. SCMG offers Slam City Basketball with year-round training, leagues, and Jr.NBA teams, and Slam City Grassroots with year-round Events, Tournaments, and Camps. Slam City is one of sixteen Jr.NBA flagship programs endorsed by the NBA, WNBA, and Jr. NBA. Slam City teams have competed globally and nationally. Because of the efforts, experiences, and relationships established by Coach Webb, Slam City Basketball has experienced rapid growth and success in the DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia areas. Coach Webb has worked with fourteen international federations by way of USA Basketball and FIBA to bring students to the United States to help them reach a higher education and level of playing experience to be successful at the collegiate and professional levels.
With over 27 years of coaching experience, Coach Webb recently opened one of the first Shoot 360 franchises on the east coast known as Shoot 360 Virginia. Shoot 360 is shaping the future of basketball training and development through interactive technology that allows athletes to test, train, track, and compete like never before. Innovative 360 members have access to our shooting machines that are enhanced to include NOAH machine vision technology, providing analytics and feedback on every repetition and also provides access to play interactive games, virtual competitions, and more.

We provide advice to student-athletes from elementary through college. For the college students trying to decide to go pro, we provide advice only. We do not act as agents in these matters. We only act as sound, non-biased, experienced advice for those who may not know what decisions to make or who to trust. Our goal is to provide a complete support system for the families and athletes within Slam City. The schools they decide to attend, the agents they choose to work with, and the off-season training programs they choose to participate in are their decisions. We simply strive to provide support when they have questions.
