Happy Basketball Season! The Gold Crown season officially began this weekend with our annual Tip-Off Tournament (see final results) and we're only getting started.
This season we are featuring a Rules Coach every month so you can get to know some of them a little better. When we think of a Rules Coach we typically just think about the person blowing the whistle during games, but Gold Crown Rules Coaches are a part of the Gold Crown family. Hopefully you had a chance to meet Monica, our October Rules Coach, but if not you can learn more about her HERE.
If you see any of the highlighted Rules Coaches throughout the season don’t be afraid to introduce yourself. They are all out there on the court for the same reason you are: the kids.
Our November spotlight is another familiar face if you've been around Gold Crown Basketball for a while. Trevor Coffman is one of the top officials in our program and one of the best young officials in the state of Colorado. You'll regularly see him working championship games (sometimes with Monica!) because he is knowledgeable, consistent and respectful of differing opinions. Get to know Trevor below:
