Hi, my name is Dave Spalding and I’m a high school teacher for Chemistry and Biology as well as the coach for the basketball team. Teaching has been something I always wanted to do after it became clear that my ambitions of becoming an NBA player didn’t quite match my talent as a player.
I’ve been playing basketball for as long as I can remember. I think my parents bought me a small indoor kids; hoop and ball when I was 3 years old and I don’t think a day goes by where I don’t pick up a ball and either coach or practice myself.
Coaching has definitely been one of the most rewarding things I’ve done, and helping some kids gain scholarships to big Universities has literally changed lives for students that would have struggled with further education.
On this site I contribute to all things basketball with some fitness and exercise tips thrown in as well. If you have any questions at all, then feel free.
