Coach of The Month
Maia Paul is Koa’s Coach of the Month for January, 2018!
Coach Maia has been coaching on and off for Koa since Koa’s inception. This winter, she can be found coaching our u14 and u16 Club Teams, as well as our u14 and u16 Development Teams. She has also become one of our most popular Private Lesson instructors, and can be seen on the court coaching 1-2 lessons each week! Coach Maia has a quiet confidence on the field. She easily relates to players and is able to individually motivate each player based on their specific skills and internal drive. Thank you Coach Maia for challenging our players and taking our teams to a new level this winter!
Athlete of The Month
Ralph G. is Koa’s Player of the Month for January, 2018!
Little Ralph is what you’ll hear from the sidelines, but he plays far from his nickname. As a third grader, Rafriel Jr. (Ralph) has led the 4th Grade West team to a hot start as they jumped out to a 3-0 record in the Elite Youth Winter Basketball League hosted by Skills & Scrimmages. Ralph has taken charge of the team leading the boys on the court as he gets the team in position on offense and is a ball hawk on defensive end leading the team in steals. There is a long way to go in the season but Ralph is up for the challenge as he continues to lead the team with his eye on the prize. Keep up the hard work and good luck to Ralph and the 4th West squad!
