Coach BowerHe took a chance on us and we are very lucky to have a top caliber coach like Christian Bower on our staff. As a former collegiate basketball player, Coach Bower brings with him a wealth of knowledge about the game and engages the kids in a unique and meaningful way. As one parent put it, there kid would run through a wall for coach Bower. His edgy and fiery personality gives our program a little extra kick. We appreciate everything coach brings to the table.
Coach JoJo joined the coaching staff in late 2016, bringing with him many years of experience with the game of basketball. He has watched his sons grow with the sport, finding joy supporting them with his wife. Coach JoJo is a master play designer and loves putting together highlight videos. Always full of smiles and advice, his positive attitude is contagious. Not to mention his golf game isn't too bad either. Coach looks forward to working with the kids at practice, and the Gremlins look forward to his continued support both on and off the court.
Coach Babinski has been a Boys Varsity Head Coach at the high school level for 39 years. He coached 28 of those years in Oklahoma and 11 years in Arizona. With over 650 wins Coach Babinski still considers his most enjoyable part of the game is working with young men.
Being a native Arizonan, Babinski enjoyed finishing his coaching career in Arizona. Starting at Goodyear’s Desert Edge High School he coached for seven years, winning the State Championship Title in 2008 and also being named by the Arizona Republic “Big Schools Coach of the Year”. Later he moved to the East Valley to coach at Gilbert’s Perry High School, from 2012 -2016. Under Babinski’s leadership the Perry Puma’s made it to the State Semi Finals in 2014 and he was again selected as “Big Schools Coach of the Year”.
Coach Babinski says that being selected “Big Schools Coach of the Year” has nothing to do with coaching but has everything to do with coaching a bunch of young men that overachieved.
Coach Babinski is hoping to find that same type of overachieving young men, coaching the Gremlins.
