About Us – AVCSS Basketball

 The idea to start a website that could help youth basketball coaches simply came out of frustration. It was certainly frustrating to read about plays or drills (basically lines, arrows, X’s and O’s), and then have to “imagine” how the play or drill really worked? It also appeared as if most of these plays or drills were geared towards very experienced high school coaches or colleges (and not for novice coaches at all). I thought that it would be helpful for youth basketball coaches if there was a way to stop the guessing. So I started this website, wrote some simplified basketball publications, and made sure that each play or drill had a matching video and/or animation to further explain the information (making it easier to understand). So after many years of hard work and research, this idea is now becoming a reality, and here we are! Let me tell you a little bit about myself and my family of basketball players (all daughters).

About Us AVCSS Basketball

Gary Petrin, AVCSS Basketball / AVCSS Sports Club LLC

 

My background comes from 15 years of coaching recreational basketball, 16 years of AAU / YBOA coaching, 7 years of coaching a high school varsity team, 3 years of coaching Middle School, and over 14 years of running a basketball club (as Club Administrator, Treasurer, Girls / Boys Basketball coordinator, Gym Coordinator, Tournament Director, and Equipment Coordinator). I have won many regional and state tournaments, and earned a trip to the YBOA Nationals (with the 14U Girls team).
 
I have 4 daughters, all having played or still playing basketball at different levels. My daughters were not blessed with a lot of height or size – so their basketball skills would have to overcome any limitations.

 

About Us AVCSS Basketball

Amy (5′ 3″) – Daughter #1 played recreational, middle school and high school basketball. Amy was tough as nails on defense, drove to the basket with ease, and was extremely aggressive on both ends of the court. She always made a very high percentage of layups, and was a very good free throw and 3-point shooter. Amy was a very good point guard and team leader. Amy is now married with 4 children…

Morgan (5′ 8″) – Daughter #2 (the tallest) played recreational, middle school, high school, and Division II college basketball (full ride during her freshman and sophomore years) at Mount Olive College in North Carolina. She started a few games as a freshman, and earned a starting position her sophomore year. Morgan could dribble with either hand (coaches had a hard time figuring out if she was right or left handed), a very smart defender, team player, and a very good 3-point shooter. Morgan is now married with 3 children.

 

About Us AVCSS BasketballAlison (5′ 4″) – Daughter #3 also played recreational, middle school, high school, Division II college basketball (full ride during her freshman year), and played point guard at Southern Virginia University (an NAIA school). Alison’s ball handling, free throw shooting, defense, work ethic, and 3-point shooting skills are incredible. In her senior year of high school basketball she helped lead the team to the High School Championship game (lost by 6), and in her first season with Southern Virginia University helped the team win the NAIA National Championship in 2006 (starting every game). In her second season Alison helped the team to the NAIA National Championship game for the 2nd year in a row (again a starter in every game). Alison is now married and has 3 children.

Alexis (5′ 6″) – Daughter #4 In her senior season Alexis was the first player in her school’s history (boys or girls basketball) to score over 1000 points in her career. She battled health issues throughout the season but worked through them. She also scored a season high 28 points (7 of 10 three pointers), made 1st team District, was the teams Co-Captain and MVP again, and was voted “honorable mention” in the regional tournament (even though her team did not participate in the regional tournament that season). Due to continued health issues Alexis is no longer playing basketball, but still loves the game. She is now married and attending a College close to home. She still goes to the local high school games, and likes to shoot around, play pick up games for fun, and helps coach church basketball.
