Why East Bay Waves

“I joined the East Bay Waves to help develop those eager to learn the game of basketball. Becoming apart of the East Bay Waves is more than just learning skills on the basketball court, you will also learn skills to carry you throughout life. In all my years of playing, I can honestly say there is nothing more gratifying than coaching a team to victory and watching the growth of everyone in the organization.”
