We'd like to welcome our newest coach April Funkhouser to the Run N Gun Family.
Coach Funkhouser is a lifelong resident of Berkeley County, Coach Funkhouser enjoys working with the area youth committing herself to building a girls’ basketball program in South Berkeley County. Her motto is, "Building confidence through the sport of girls’ basketball". Beginning her basketball coaching career when her children were small, she and her husband coached together for many years developing basketball fundamentals, structure and discipline through the Parks and Recreation program. They held their first girl's basketball clinic in 2016 where they saw over 50 girls attend. In 2017, that number grew to over 75 girls attending the two-day clinic. “Giving back to the community and watching our young ladies develop their heart and mind give me great joy.”
Coach Funkhouser is a graduate of Musselman High school where she was a softball and basketball letterman. She graduated from Mountain State University with a B.S in Organizational Leadership. She also honorably served in the WV Air National Guard. Additional community involvement includes being a 4H leader of the Blue Ridge Helping Hands 4H club, serving on the extension service committee as well as serving as an assistant coach with the Parks and Recreations volleyball program and a past softball coach for the South Berkeley little league program.
