Assistant Coach: Courtney Coffer
Head Coach: Daryl Towe
Assistant Coach: Lonnie McDonald
Always a student of the game of basketball, I have taught both men and women, along with young kids (boys and girls). My experiences with coaching started back in Mt Vernon, NY. The perennial NY high school powerhouse instilled the basis for learning fundamentals and the meaning of teamwork. Through this upbringing and the Boys and Girls Club, I've always used lessons learned to motivate me in coaching and playing.
During my career within the USAF, I have either played or coach at the varsity level or volunteered to coach at the local AYA. The experiences gained from coaching at AYA and seeing how the kids relate to each other about teamwork and camaraderie is priceless. From learning the game, building friendships and pride of teamwork has only strengthened my love of coaching. The ups and downs of participating, winning and losing, are the building blocks for life. I have coached youth coed teams and the men's and women’s varsity and saw what each level of accomplishment means to players. Some players just want to play, some want to learn more about game and depending on age, some want to get the exercise, which also is beneficial.
The support of the local community and also teaching a game that so many youngsters enjoy is a passion that cannot be denied. I look forward to assisting Coach Watts in her efforts to teach and prepare these young girls the game of basketball.

Coach: Angela Watts
Whether you are playing or watching as a spectator, sports are entertaining and exciting. There are so many values that can be learned and taught from playing and coaching a sport. Although we are sometime so consumed by highlights, scores, wins and losses of a sport, we often fail to realize that there is so much more to offer through sports once you take the time to examine them. Many attributes of life’s lessons can be taught through sports such as teamwork, leadership and responsibility.
