2017 Royals Coaching Staff

In recruiting our coaching staff, our objective is to find individuals who have not only played the game, but who have built successful teams and programs. In addition to strong coaching skills, these individuals have strong leadership skills and a solid comfort level in communicating with players and parents alike. They also share a common philosophical belief in how the game should be played (e.g. “me-ball”, shots from ridiculous angles and dodges into double and triple teams will be rewarded with a comfortable spot on the bench).
It is often difficult to capture the essence of a coach when all you have to go by is a quick bio. With that said, I would openly encourage you to talk to players who have played for these coaches (or to the parents of players). I can assure you that you will be very pleased with what you hear. You can also feel confident that these coaches will serve as great role models for your sons.

With all teams, our objective is to have a Head Coach, a Senior Coach and an Assistant Coach. We try to ensure that at least one coach has a strong defensive-oriented background (playing or coaching) and one has a strong offensive-oriented background. This expertise enables us to provide better in-depth positional-focused coaching.  Of note, our Assistant Coaches are typically current or recently graduated collegiate players. Our Assistant coaches serve as great role models for our high school players and also provide players with first-hand experience on the recruiting process (at high school levels). Plus, the kids think our college coaches are a lot more fun and hip then our more experienced, “older” coaches.
