As a basketball organization, we have one of the most important and exciting jobs in the world!

Think about it.

Teachers would do anything to get the enthusiasm that we get from our players. Kids actually like and want to play basketball.

Our players look up to us. They listen to us. And we have the opportunity to make a POSITIVE impact on their lives. We take that opportunity very seriously at ETBL!

Bottom line. We have a very important and rewarding job! We would love to have you be a part of this rewarding organization!

It's going to be another great season! I'm really looking forward to working with you all and your children! If there is ever anything I can do for you - please call me.

See you on the Court!
