Hello, my name is Ashley Bray and I have the privilege of being the Head Coach for the Eagles Elementary Girls’ Basketball team. Our assistant coach this year will be Christi Johnson. This is our first year as coaches and we both are very excited for this upcoming season.
I have been playing basketball since Junior High School and have 2 daughters who play as well. As the coach, I will emphasize fun & enjoyment, skill development, and developing players’ ability to work cooperatively on and off the court, while increasing their knowledge of basketball.
We believe in the saying, “Offense sells tickets and defense wins games.” Defense to us is the most important aspect of the game. We plan to instill the importance and fundamentals of defense in our team.
We are looking forward to an awesome and fun season. Go Lady Eagles!!!!!!

“It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey.”
This year we have given the opportunity to explore basketball with our youngest athletes. The exposure is a great entrance into the world of athletics, and I hope that our students learn how to be cooperative team players who let their lights shine as bright as they let their fellow teammates’ shine. If we have fun and learn, we are successful.
“Winners never quit and Quitters never win.”
I coach to teach the player the importance of fundamentals, strategy, and the role they play. Everyone involved is here to improve and excel in focus, hard work, and determination being the three things needed to assure this happens. I strive to instill the desire to play and a drive to make the team better on and off the court.
Goals: To win District and compete in Regionals.
I believe in properly teaching the basic fundamentals of basketball such as dribbling, shooting, passing, and rebounding. Without being vigorously trained on these fundamentals, the player and the team cannot be successful. I believe in a fast pace up-tempo offense and a full court aggressive defense. I expect all of my players to come to practice ready to work hard and strive to get better every single day. Our goals for this upcoming season are to win our district and compete for a state championship.
“In life and in basketball, it’s always about the NEXT PLAY”
Let's Go Eagles!!
