About Us

Updated Thursday July 5, 2018 by Michael Wirth.

Coyote Hoops Club was formed to provide the best in basketball skill development and character education for athletes within the Gilbert area and to organize the feeder programs for CVHS. We strive to provide a better way to improve skill development while incorporating the intangibles team togetherness, unselfishness, servant leadership, community, sportsmanship, and teamwork. Director of the Coyote Hoops Club is Coach Michael Wirth who has 17 years experience as a Varsity Head Coach.  

How are we different?  We want to change the scene when it comes to club basketball.  We are going to focus more on high-level, high-intensity skill and team development while building the continuity and connection for community.  Currently, most players log more hours in competitive tournaments/games then they do with training. While competitive games and tournaments have value when a player is ready if it becomes the main source of development growth becomes limited especially for younger players.  We want to try and have 5 to 1 ratio. 5 hours of skill and team development to every 1 hour of competitive play. 

Mission:  Engage daily in the process of becoming our best in all areas of our lives while creating and fostering the sense of community. 

Core Values: 
B=Believe
E=Effort
S=Synergy
T=Toughness
