Good basketball starts with defense and intensity. All the coaches at Bement focus on these vital aspects of the game through footwork and intelligent positioning. With varsity and junior varsity teams, there is a wide variety of skill and experience on the court. Our practice and home game courts are at Deerfield Academy. Like many of our other varsity sports, we often play up against high schools in the area.
Alex has been running around on Bement fields since he started as a student in third grade. In his 13th year as the head boys varsity soccer coach, Alex played on the Deerfield Academy varsity team as well as a club league in Nairobi, Kenya. As the Athletic Director, Health teacher, 9th grade advisor, and avid athlete, Alex is in his 42nd consecutive season of coaching. "I love trying to figure out how to reach every athlete as their coach and work to instill passion and confidence. Coaching is truly an art and I never want to stop in my pursuit to be better." Along with soccer, Alex coaches girls' varsity basketball and golf.
