TRBO Coaches-

We were able to get to 9 teams and coaches this last week.  We are stopping by more this week.  Coaches are swinging by to let you know we are available for assistance and to let you know the good you are doing.  We appreciate all of you for the time and commitment you put into your teams and the players.

One of the goals of TRBO is to support and equip basketball coaches.  We have mentor coaches available to just give you another set of eyes, to help run drills or just offer feedback.  The last thing we want is for you to feel left on an island by yourself!  We are here to the extent you need!

If you have a particular need, request or desire please let us know.

Here is what one coach said this week:
“The mentor coach is just awesome. Super friendly, super helpful, and having him watch my practice and give me feedback on what I was doing well & could be doing better or slightly different was beyond helpful. 

This is a prime example of why I moved my team to TRBO. I also had a number of parents in attendance that got to see this as well.”

  LANCE HAAS   We are super excited to bring Lance on board our Mentor/Master Coach team.   Lance Haas, is a basketball mind guru.  I know because I had to coach against him for 5 years!  =)  He was the Willamette Varsity girls coach for over 10 years who co-coached them to 3 state championships.  He had a variety of teams he won with.  From teams who had a true post, to teams who were guard heavy & outsized, to teams who were quick and teams who lacked depth.  No matter the teams strengths & weakness, he found a way to set them up for success.  His teams functioned like a machine on both the defensive and offensive sides of the game.  They knew what to do and how to do it.  He is known for his detail oriented systems of play, teaching progressions in practice and exposing opponents weaknesses.  Willamette’s state championships began at practice; many of them lead and planned by Lance.

School Area Newsletter

What I need from you by each Monday to be included in the Newsletter:

1) Picture of your team
2) How your team did over the weekend or in practices… not just wins and losses but growth & improvement needs to be praised.  If you want to give “props” to a player as well… maybe think about those who don’t necessarily score all the points.
3)  What is coming up for your team?  When is there next game/tourney?
4) Anything else you can think of… share it.

email them to:  or text to:  541-729-9232

*This information will go out to the whole high school area program!
