Basketball has always been a huge part of Kyli’s life. Because her mom played in college at Western Washington University, she got an early start, playing on her first team when she was in kindergarten. She now plays in the elite level Northwest Blazers program, and hopes to play in college. She loves playing the game because of the life skills she learns from it, and the family feeling that being on a team creates. She enjoys coaching because she loves being around kids and seeing how much they love the game, just like she did. She has 6 younger cousins and a little brother, so she is used to helping and working with kids. In addition to basketball, she plays volleyball, which she has quickly grown to love. Kyli is really looking forward to being a high school basketball player this fall.
