Coach of The Month
Rafriel Guthrie is Koa’s Coach of the Month for February, 2018!
Coach Rafriel & the 4th West squad has started off 2018 on a high note. For the second consecutive season since its existence, the 4th West team is on top of their division in their respective league. Entering the final weekend of the regular season, the 4th West team is 7-0 and looking forward to continuing the momentum into the playoffs next month. What makes this team special is that each player makes a difference on the court; whether it is rebounding, defensive pressure, or scoring, each kid on the court does their job. On the court, you can hear the communication between players as they work together to stop ball, play help defense, and call out screens/picks. The team is assisted by Coach Antony (4th East), the 4th Grade division is in good hands as they work together to develop the skills of these young men and teach the game the way it is supposed to be played. It is fun to watch, a true testament to the way the boys have been coached. Keep it up Coach Rafriel and good luck in the playoffs!
