David "Coach B" Beckerman, of Guilford, is Hamden Hall’s former Varsity Basketball coach and a past grandparent at the school. He is also founder and chairman of the board, Acorn Group, and currently serves as the head coach of the Varsity Boys’ Basketball team at The Pine Crest School in Florida. David coached basketball at Hamden Hall for more than a decade – from 1993 through 2004 – and amassed 10 consecutive years of 22 wins or more. Also during that time, Hamden Hall won eight New England Championships including six consecutive wins from 1998 through 2004. Hamden Hall also garnered six Fairchester Championships under Beckerman, who produced nearly 20 college-bound players during his tenure.
“The success of any coach comes from his players. I was blessed with so many great student-athletes who understood the mission both in the classroom and on the basketball court,” said Beckerman.
Hamden Hall Country Day School is a nurturing and inclusive community with a dynamic learning environment that promotes academic excellence by understanding each child and fostering their individual growth.
