WCA Basketball Signups for 2024

We are excited to be gearing up for basketball this year!

First off, let’s introduce our coaches!

  • Jay Ransom Head Coach, Middle School (9-12 year olds) and JV (13+): Jay has coached basketball at the varsity level at Websterville for many years in the past. We look forward to the knowledge and skills he will be able to pass along to our athletes!
  • Jaime Blood, Assistant Coach, JV:  We’re so excited to have Jaime coming on board to help out with our older crew!  As an alumni of WCA, Jaime played basketball throughout high school, and even played for and coached with Mr. Ransom! They are happy to be able to “do basketball” together again.
  • Kelley Ernst, Assistant Coach, Middle School:  You know Mrs. Ernst as our superstar office lady and substitute teacher, but did you know she also played basketball for Waterford town and various Vermont AAU teams? AND coached middle school basketball?! Since her baby (yay!) isn’t due until May, she is excited to help us out this season!
