Hi, I am Dan Jech. I recently graduated from The University of South Dakota with a marketing major-emphasis on sports. I started playing basketball in 6th grade and played throughout college as I have loved it ever since. I am excited to be able to coach these young ladies through AAU, as I competed nationally in the AAU circuit during my high school years. I hope to teach how basketball is not only a game, but a lifestyle and how it can affect your life on and off the court. I will bring my knowledge and energy into the success of the team, memories that these ladies make with each other will be ones that last forever. I feel it is important to become not only teammates, but friends and family whom they can rely on. I cannot wait for the season to get started!
7th Grade Assistant Coach
Hello, I am Emma Collins. I am a recent college graduate from The University of South Dakota where I majored in Marketing and minored in Social Media Marketing. Throughout my whole life I have been around basketball. Growing up, my mom coached basketball at various levels so I was around higher level practices and games quite often. I myself also played from a very young age throughout high school and now coach the Mayo Girls Basketball 9th Grade team as well. I am very eager for the season to start and to get into the gym to share the love of this game with these young adults. The memories and lessons that these girls can have and learn on and off the court are ones that will follow them throughout life. I am so excited to be able to coach for Air Minnesota.
