Coach of The Month
Rafriel is Koa’s Coach of the Month for February, 2019!
For the second time, Coach Rafriel has earned the Founding Farmer’s Coach of the Month! His 5th West team continued the success from their fall league runner-up result and are currently undefeated entering the last weekend of the regular season. He has created a great culture around the 5th grade basketball team embodying Koa’s core values and instilling them into his players. The boys are often hanging outside of practice and even learning the meaning of team building with non-basketball related activities during their practice, like completing puzzles, playing Uno, and other strategic games that involve teamwork. Good luck on the rest of the season and keep up the great work, Coach Rafriel!
Athlete of The Month
Koa U12 Field Hockey is Koa’s Player of the Month for February, 2019!
During this Winter Indoor Season, Koa U12 only had 2 returning players from last year’s strong u12 team. This year, they were going to be tested due to this being the first competitive indoor season for more than half of the players on our current u12 team! They set goals, showed up to practice every day and worked hard – and over the course of the past 4 months they were able to put themselves into the Koa Record Books as being the first Koa Team to win a Championship at a USA Field Hockey sponsored event! This u12 team is a special team, and is extremely deserving of this honor and accomplishment!Every tournament and every practice, they fought, worked hard and grew as one. They learned each other’s strengths and weaknesses, but most importantly they learned to never give up. As exciting as it was for most going to their first big tournament, the girls showed great composure and will to take the top spot and make Koa history. The girls scored a total of 17 goals on the weekend and showed great defense with three shutouts! They are a team that always believes in themselves and their abilities, and they are filled with wonderful leaders who aren’t afraid of the pressure. We could not be more proud of our U12 team and how hard they worked to transform themselves into National Indoor Champions! We are so excited to see what the spring season holds for this special group of girls!
