More Info About Coach Lemon:
Born and raised in Boulder, Colorado, moved to Peoria in 2005. Have 3 children who all attended Vistancia through their elementary years, the third is still there. Oldest daughter (Laina) is now a Sophomore in College in S. California, middle child (Cade) is a Junior at Liberty H.S. and Mason is the 7th grader at Vistancia. Been married for 26 years to Julie, also a Colorado native, but we love Arizona and will never leave! I serve in several different community functions, including Elder at Discovery Point Church here in Peoria. I just recently retired from a Banking career after 28 years and am looking to fulfill a dream of becoming a small business owner. I played numerous sports growing up but loved basketball the most and played competitively in High School and college. I have been coaching youth sports for over 30 years as I was introduced to it in college where I was lucky enough to be invited to be a part in starting a youth basketball league at the local YMCA in Edmond, Oklahoma where I coached, refereed, set game schedules, swept floors, inflated basketballs, etc.
We will be focused on developing the fundamentals and the character of the boys, more so than prioritizing Wins. Effort, teamwork, attitude, and having fun will be the framework for our practices, games, and school work/academics.
I am very excited about this season and am committed to representing Vistancia Elementary in a way that will make the students, teachers, parents, and administration proud.
