Coach: Royce Keown
Royce is a graduate of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and a retired officer from the United States Air Force. For 15 years while on active duty in the military, he volunteered to coach youth basketball and baseball for military youth teams. During the last eight years, he has coached the 8/9-year-old age group at Quantico Marines Corps Base, the U10 and U11 Girls AAU teams in Prince Williams County, and the U8 boys and U9 Girls basketball teams for the Fairfax Stars. In 1999, Royce led his U10 Prince Williams girls team to a 5th place finish at the AAU National Tournament in Orlando, Florida.
This year, his coaching philosophy for the U9 boys will focus on fundamental skill development and improving the player’s knowledge of the game of basketball. High emphasis will be placed on defense.
