Grizzlies Youth Basketball

Coach of the Year

Congratulations to the 2017-18 Grizzlies Youth Basketball Coach of the Year!

Representing Grace Athletics, and pictured above with Memphis Grizzlies guard Andrew Harrison, Kevin Wieters has leveraged basketball and other sports to positively impact thousands of Memphis-area youth. Under the mantra of “Ministry First. Sports Second.”, he and his staff use basketball to cultivate values such as leadership, service and fellowship. In addition to generally serving players of all ages and skill levels, Kevin also operates a 501c3 that caters to under-served and at-risk youth. A USA Basketball Gold-licensed coach, he activates a wide range of team and Jr. NBA programming – including Junior Grizzlies, the Jr. NBA Skills Challenge, and Grizzlies Summer Basketball Camps – and not even a recent health condition could deter his overall efforts.

The Memphis Grizzlies and Nike are proud to recognize Kevin while also celebrating the contributions and positive impacts of ALL youth basketball coaches. If you are a coach or administrator who would also like to get involved with Grizzlies Youth Basketball, e-mail Antonio Perez (Sr. Manager, Youth Basketball Programming) at aperez@grizzlies.com.
