ORONO – On Sunday, Maine women’s basketball head coach, Amy Vachon, has turned her focus to girls basketball here in Maine.
Vachon has noticed the low number of female coaches in the state and she’s hoping that number will start to trend in the other direction. She has set up a virtual female basketball coaches work shop for this coming Sunday.
Joining Vachon on the Zoom chat will be fellow Maine coaches Adrienne Shibles of Bowdoin, Kissy Walker of Husson along with Lynne Hasson of South Portland, Karen Magnusson of Maranacook and Falmouth girls basketball coach Dawn Armand.
“I’m hoping that getting all of the females who are interested in coaching together we can kind of start a support system a support group and a try and figure out why the numbers really low and how we can address that,” Vachon said.
