As we all know God is good! We believe He has answered our prayers and has blessed us with an outstanding, gifted coach to lead our Lady’s Basketball Program. Please welcome Coach Aaron Welch, the new Director of the Girls’ Basketball Program.
Coach Juli Pope has been leading our varsity girls since Coach Dunn had to step down. As to not create any further distractions to the varsity team Coach Welch believes at this time it is best for Coach Pope to continue to lead the varsity team while he coaches the middle school team for the season. Coach Jeremy Hale stepped in to help us out in our time of need and we very much appreciate his dedication to Calvary Basketball. Both Coach Welch and Coach Pope have expressed their excitement in being blessed with the opportunity to contribute to the program. Here are brief statements from our coaches.
Coach Welch… “I couldn’t be more thrilled to join the team here at Calvary! The Lord has blessed me with so many opportunities to serve over the years; as a pastor, a counselor, and as a professor. But I can honestly say that many times, I believe God has impacted my life the most from the relationships I’ve formed over 28 years of coaching, most recently as the Head Women’s Basketball Coach at Central Christian College in Missouri. Having the opportunity to invest in the players who will come through the Calvary program is a tremendous honor and a weighty responsibility that I do not take lightly. I can’t wait to meet the team and to carry on the mission of “inspiring excellence in mind, body, spirit, and legacy” to every girl who puts on the green, black and white.”
Coach Pope… “It is such an honor and joy to be coaching the Lady Knights Varsity, basketball team. As a former Knight, I can tell you it is a pleasure to be back. I am looking forward to not only strengthening and encouraging these girls in their sport and talent but in their knowledge of God’s word and in building character traits that reflect our Savior, Jesus Christ. Swords up!”
Join us as we welcome Coach Aaron Welch and Coach Juli Pope to the CCS Coaching Family. Swords Up; Go Knights!
