This is Coach AL Aldridge. Due to physical restraints ( My Cancer is back) I am unable to coach the Columbia Cascades Club. This is a heart breaking decision for me, having to walk away from a career of nearly 50 years and a sport that I still love.
I have given the club to my friend Jackie Robinson. Jackie is the Head Womens BB Coach at Evergreen State College in Olympia. ( His Bio is on the coaches page) Jackie was my assistant last summer. He is experienced and has coached in HS at River Ridge and Olympia HS’s, and club with the PAC Express of old. The PAC Express Organization is helping Jackie with planning details and travel. The new team name is going to be the Cascade Express. As of now he is only planning on one team, but that could change any day. Jackie’s plans can be discussed with him by emailing or calling him. His email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. He can be reached at: 360 349-5435.
Assisting Jackie is: (KK) Kyhari Adams EGSU Assistant Coach.
I am confident Jackie will maintain the strong reputation that this club has established and continue to help our players improve and get recruited. He is a players coach and the kids love playing for him!
He is in the final process of filling our the Cascades top team and setting the schedule for spring and summer, and needs players.
Please contact Coach Jackie for any questions.
