Dear Parents,

 

Silver Knights Basketball Club is looking for new rep team coaches, are you interested in joining our team?

 

Emoji Why You Should Coach Your Hoopster or Girl-Baller Rep With Silver Knights Basketball:

 

#1.  Your son or daughter automatically makes the team!!!, and plays in the role/position you feel best suits him or her.  Your son/daughter gets a fair decent genuine opportunity to compete, and not stuck with a forlorn sad face on another coach’s bench getting splinters.

 

#2.  You control the entire agenda.  You practice on the evenings of your availability according to your family schedule, and not some other random coach’s agenda.  You practice relatively close to your neighbourhood.

 

#3.  You control how engaged you desire your season.  Do you play 25 games or 50? Do you desire 2 practices a week or 3?  You determine the level of play etc.

 

#4.  Unlike most basketball organizations, you have considerable control and impact upon how your team’s finances are spent.

 

#5.  The vast majority of our hundreds of coaches over 20 years who have found the experience interesting, often challenging, and highly rewarding.  Many have stayed on for well over 5 years, and some even when their son/daughter graduated from high school.

 

#6.  We will mentor, guide, and help you this first year through the learning curve.  We will facilitate in all aspects your coaching Level 1 certification.  We will come to some of your practices and help if you desire.

 

#7.  What percent of your current position that you now know so well, did you actually know upon initial job acceptance?  Why would you expect to know any more as a basketball coach, and why would we?

 

#8.  We are NOT a Win At All Costs basketball organization.  We are all about the player experience, the memories, the friendships, regardless of the level or ranking in the OBA.  We had a team last season, who won their very first game at the OBA Championships, and the coaches and players were more joyous in their success than the Championship Gold medal team.  That’s what YSSK Basketball is all about.

 

If this in any manner is intriguing to you, would you kindly contact us.  It all starts with a conversation with our Rep Team Director, Joe Spineto.  See his contact information below.

 

For the love of our game,
