Coach Freddrick Thompson
I would like to introduce myself and my family to the Barons family as the New 14U Basketball Coach 2017-2018. My name is Coach Freddrick Thompson from Covington, Ga., and my wife, Angelique Thompson, is from Foley, Al. My wife Angelique and I have been married almost two years. We are currently raising our family in the Lilburn community. We have a Huge(smiles) family with 11 kids(my 8 and her 3). We believe in Family and all the blessings that our family is surrounded by each day to share with others.
I have been involved with Basketball as a player, referee, youth coach(volunteer) and Adult League Coach for over 20 years. Thanks to my wife for encouraging me to coach our kids at Lucky Shoals Park where my former and current players adorn the walls still today. I am currently the Head Coach for the AAU HS3 Fire Basketball team. We have competed at D1, D2 & D3 level with some form of success in all of them. I received the Presidential Award for Volunteerism 2015 for the time I have dedicated to the youth over the years. I am also a Army Veteran with 9 years of active duty and reserve service.
I look forward to team building, skill development, leadership development, confidence building and next level preparation. I want every player to live out their dreams on the court or off the court. I have an open door policy which helps us build a Coach/Parent open line of communication about your child's development. Let's get ready for an exciting 2017-2018 season of basketball.
