Eagle River’s basketball teams are gearing up for another season as they build a legacy of excellence in the face of stiff competition from larger schools in the Anchorage School District and impart life lessons to athletes. Coach Sconiers of Chugiak High School (CHS) says, “I think basketball is a tremendous instrument for life,” saying that it teaches teamwork and other life skills they will need later. “Teaching and coaching go hand-in-hand,” Coach Landers of Gruening Middle School says, continuing by saying that coaching is the reason he pursued teaching. He loves seeing the smiles on athletes’ faces when they accomplish something they have never done before. For him, basketball also fills a void that some students might have in their lives.
