Head High School Coach – Coach Haley has been coaching Warrior basketball since 2016. She is a homeschooling mom of four children: Amelia, Norah, and twins Callen and Fiona. She played basketball through high school, on one State Championship and two second place teams. Coaching has brought her back to the game she loves.  Laura enjoys teaching both new and experienced players of all abilities. She focuses on fundamentals while working to challenge and improve skills of Warrior players. She encourages the girls to work hard, but also to have fun while playing. She enjoys watching the girls grow through the season in not just their basketball skills, but also in the friendships they make while coming together as a team.

Head Junior High Coach – Amy has helped coach for 3+ years on the junior high team and her daughter Natalie plays on the team.

Darcie Bickel – coachdarcie@metrowarriors.org

Head Junior High Coach – Assistant Junior High Coach – A few notable things about Darcie is that she loves to talk, share her love of the ukulele with others, and admire fluffy clouds. Ultimately she enjoys the little things in life and just being wherever God wants her to be. Darcie is a Warrior alumni and played both volleyball and basketball for 8 years. This is her first year as a coach and she is enthusiastic about this new role that God has for her. While she definitely loves to win, she believes that sports are not just about winning, but glorifying the Lord with the attitudes that we have on and off the court. She has learned many lessons through being an athlete over the years and is looking forward to sharing those lessons learned with whoever she has the opportunity to coach.
