Philosophy:  If you give 100% you can never have regrets. We will win with humility and lose with composure. I expect every athlete to be willing to work hard not only on the court, but also in the classroom. I hope to instill values and passion in our athletes that will last a lifetime.

Most proud of:  I have been extremely lucky to coach many talented players and to be able to watch them grow into the adults they are has been a true gift.

  • TRYOUTS:  Students who are unable to participate in summer practices/tryouts will need to tryout when the season of sport begins; class schedule will be rearranged if they make the team at that time.

  • SUMMER PRACTICES:  Most teams will hold summer practices/tryouts, though all sports are required to have a 3-week “dead” period during the summer. This is a good time to make vacation plans.  Summer practices are not mandatory but are highly recommended and help us coordinate your initial course schedule.  Fall Sports have priority during summer if times conflict.
