Be a coach – it’s for the kids!

The Ignite Basketball Association (IBA) presented by Spokane Hoopfest is calling all coaches who want to create a fun and engaging environment for sixth, seventh and eighth graders.

“This is a great opportunity to share your time and mentor kids in our community,” says Keli. “No experience is necessary, just the willingness to teach kids basketball skills and receive so much in return.”

What you need to know:

  • Coaches must be at least 18 years old, who can attend all practice and game nights. Co-coaches and assistant coaches are highly recommended, so have fun with another friend!
  • Players are from Garry, Glover, Salk and Shaw, as well as their feeder elementary schools.
  • The season begins the week of Oct. 16, as practices commence on that day.
  • Game nights are scheduled on Saturday’s (Oct. 28, Nov, 4, Nov. 11 and Nov. 18) at Rogers High School.

IBA is a community- and school-based outreach program that offers a safe, constructive alternative for area youth. The goal of the organization is to strengthen participants character, self-esteem and discipline so they are better equipped and prepared for the challenges of their teen years and beyond.

This is a great way to spend a few hours a week making a difference in kids’ lives, while having fun. If you would like to coach a team, we’d love to have you!
