ATLANTA – The Atlanta Dream announced its local Jr. NBA Coach of the Year winner, head coach Chantay Garrett-Frost of Mays High School in Atlanta.
The Jr. NBA Coach of the Year is awarded to local youth basketball coaches influencing young people’s lives on and off the court. The Jr. NBA’s goal is to honor coaches that teach the fundamentals and values of the game, and highlight the positive impact that coaches can have on the youth basketball experience.
Local youth basketball coaches nominated Coach Frost for the honor and the Dream handpicked her. Coach Frost will receive a trophy and recognition on JrNBA.com.

She’s actively involved in the Atlanta Tuskegee Alumni Club and organizes students to attend the fall open house. She is also sponsoring a passport scholarship to Tuskegee University for a deserving athlete.
Coach Frost is an advocate for improving the lives and success of students and players she encounters. Whether it’s in the classroom as a science teacher or on the court as a coach, Frost continues to lead youth and takes pride in training middle school kids every summer.
Coach Frost is automatically entered into the national selection process where the Jr. NBA Coach of the Year Selection Committee will choose three top finalists from the NBA and WNBA local Coach of the Year winners. The national selection process takes place between March 5 and May 17.
