Coach (A1 Team):
Assistant Coach: Mark Thompson
The A1 team is comprised of 7th and 8th graders. While we do not have tryouts or make cuts from this team, it is a more competitive team and not everyone receives equal playing time. A focus for the coaches is to reinforce fundamental skills, while teaching basic game strategy. More importantly, the coaches aim to build character in each player by instilling a mindset of hard work and unselfish teamwork. This character building provides a foundation for the themes of Christian life and service that are so important to Word of Life’s focus as a whole.
Coach (B1 Team): Bill Maxfield
The B1 basketball team is comprised of 5th and 6th graders. It is an introduction to the basic skills of basketball. All players who attend practice regularly get equal playing time in the matches, and all girls rotate around to play all positions.
