Gig Harbor Basketball Coaches

  • Bruce Carey-Coach

    Sport: Basketball

    Favorite Verse:
    For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:17

    Experience:
    I have been bouncing a basketball and had a love for the game as far back as I can remember. Upon graduation of High School, I joined the ARMY and while serving my country had the wonderful opportunity to play Basketball and represent my unit while serving overseas (South Korea). For the last six years I have been coaching Basketball at Upwards, Peninsula Athletic Association, several club teams throughout the area. But my greatest experience and joy was coaching and teaching all three of my children the game of Basketball.

    Personal Fact:
    I grew up in small town Ohio and the corn fields are where I spent most of my day. That is, until the Drill Sergeant picked me up for boot camp. Upon completion of my Military Service, I move to Gig Harbor where I live today. Along the way, I became a Youth Pastor and that experience has totally transformed and changed my life.

    Why I love to coach:
    This is simple, because I love the Lord, the game of Basketball, and have a tremendous heart for the youth of this Nation. You can never underestimate the difference you can make in somebody’s life and the game of Basketball opens the door for that opportunity.
