Took my son and some of his 8th grade football buddies to Scary Creek Paintball for a small group team bonding/building adventure! Building memories. Had an absolute blast!

They were troopers. We did Paintball, then they all went with me to a Girls Middle School fall ball game.

As a coach, I find it so very important the players do fun things with their teammates outside of the grind of practice and games. What is a team if you don't even know the person your playing with! And how many remember their win/loss record vs the memories made.


So, created an opportunity for some of my returners to play some fall ball! I am so excited just to provide them the opportunity to play before season starts!

You know, I sit back and think, how many of my basketball girls play other sports or do other activities in the fall. It is pretty awesome when over half of my basketnball girls do other stuff in the fall.

I don't want to compete with their fall sports because I am a winter sport, but I encourage alll those girls that do other activities, try to do it all if you can and want too. Enjoy it all, while you have the opportunity as the opportunity may not always be there!

The 3 week middle school summer basketball workouts have come and gone. 15 days of middle schoolers summer break, getting up at 8 am. To be good at something, whatever it may be, you have to be willing to put in the time and effort to be good at it or to get better!

We have worked hard the last three weeks. So very Proud of Jessi, Bella, and Payshence for stepping up their leadership with this group since day 1. I can't forget Alexis either, who joined us after vaca...and who joined us for her first year last year as a 7th grader. These girls are my 8th graders who I will lean on to be the leaders on the floor. Excited for season to start. We ended the week with a scrimmage, pool party and a workout with Lisa at Cardio Kickboxing at Butch Hiles BJJ & MMA-Charleston, WV . Thank you so very much Lisa Hiles! I appreciate you a whole big bunch!


Elkview Middle Boys Basketball, let's GO!

Here’s the schedule for our shootout on the river tomorrow!! Come on down to Elkview Middle School and check out your Herd!! 🏀🦌


Had a little get together today for those that could make it, to cut loose, have fun and eat pizza, for the girls and boys who have participated in the summer middle school basketball workouts at Elkview Middle.

The hardest part of starting something new or not in your normal day to day routine, is just getting started. This three week summer basketball training is all voluntary. So proud of the girls who continue to attend and go hard for our hour and half each day at 8am during their summer break.

Fridays, we move out of the basketball gym and do a little something different. I only had 4 to end the week with my bestie Lisa and trainer at Cardio Kickboxing at Butch Hiles BJJ & MMA-Charleston, WV , but, what a great workout we had to start our Friday morning off right! Oh and Maddie, I probably should have stood in the back. :) lol


Great workout today! I so appreciate everyone showing up. I told them, its like a free 3-week basketball camp!! :) I know 8am may not be the preferred time for most, including myself, but I am committed to the 8am's, hope they are too!

Schedule for the remaining week:
Tuesday 8am to 9:30 YMCA
Wednesday 8am to 9:30 YMCA
Thursday 8am to 9:30 YMCA
Friday 8:00 to 9:00, work out with Lisa Hiles at her gym.


I just want to give a shout out to some of the girls I coached last year, that are headed to high school. Ayva Veltri, Teri, Katie, Lily, Natilee, Ziraya and Emma. First, I will miss you guys.

All of you all were so eager to learn last year and showed so much potential to want to be better. But now it's time to move on and advance to the potential of which I know you all have in you. I give you this advice.......take every opportunity to play all those sports that you love. You only go through high school once and you only have the opportunity to play sports for a short period unless you go to college and play sports. Play multiple sports and focus on that sport during the season of which its played. It is not always easy and convenient but when that time comes for you to graduate, don't wish you would have done more.

You have every opportunity to do it now!

Pictures say it all! To get better you have to do something about it! Awesome job girls this A.M.

Thank you so much Lisa Hiles for the great workout! Looking forward to the next two Fridays!


Great turnout of girls the last two days at our summer basketball workouts. They are really showing they want to be better and my older girls are really showing great leadership. Very proud of them for stepping up!

Wednesday at 8am, we are headed to workout with my friend Lisa Hiles at Cardio Kickboxing at Butch Hiles BJJ & MMA-Charleston, WV to get a different kind of training. So excited!

Thursday and Friday, we will be back to the YMCA at 8am.

Had to share this uplifting song. Young or old, these words to this song applies to us all. Some of you youngins, before you click off the video, not knowing who this singer may be, just hear the words, don't just listen, here what it says. Sometimes we all surprise ourselves just how strong we can be, during those difficult times, whatever they may be.



Off Season, easy workout that doesn't take a lot of time, can be adjusted for what you may have available, for those who may want or need that extra something before next season!
