Girls’ Basketball Team

Girls Basketball Team

‘Tis the season to be jolly- and for a new basketball season. Some people may not know much about the sport, other than that it is one of the most popular sports in America, so let’s take a look at an interview with the girls’ basketball coach, Coach Lordi!


1) What are your expectations for this year’s season?

My expectations are that the girls work hard day in and day out to get better at playing basketball. They can control two things – attitude and effort. I expect them to come to games and practice ready to work hard.


2) How do you hope this year can improve from last year?

I hope that the girls continue to be competitive and also support one another. I also think that they can always improve their skills – shooting, playing defense, etc.


3) What do you believe the greatest challenge of this year will be?

The greatest challenge will be playing a full game competitively. We can show up and play only a couple of quarters well. We need to play well for the full four quarters.


4) Of all the other sports and grade levels you could coach, why did you choose middle school basketball?

I like making a difference at the youth level. Basketball has always been a huge part of my life, and I want to be able to give back to players growing up playing the sport. I hope to instill a love for the game in all of my players.
