NOVA 94 Feet 5th Grade Girls Team-Orange

Head Coach:  Marvin Somoza

Coach Marvin Somoza grew up in Reston, VA and has had a passion for the game of basketball ever since he first played the game. He has played basketball and soccer throughout the area from Reston Association through the high school varsity level at Park View High. Coach Somoza has coached youth basketball since 2010 beginning with ELBL in Loudoun County for 5th–8th graders. He eventually became the Vice President for ELBL before stepping down to join Sterling Middle School’s 8th grade travel program. He has also served as an assistant on a Boys 12th grade team with another AAU program taking his teams to national tournaments.   Coach Somoza currently coaches a Girls 7th Grade Division 1 travel team for Great Falls in the FCYBL, recently winning back-to-back holiday tournaments.   He also is the head coach of the Fairfax Blue Devils in the inaugural season of the PYBL girls division.  Aside from coaching, Coach Somoza also is a youth basketball trainer.  Teamwork, great communication and chemistry are key factors that he focuses on for his teams to grow and succeed together. For everything you do he believes you have to “start strong, and finish stronger.” This is the character he brings on and off the basketball court ensuring his team performs at high levels.  This will be Coach Somoza's third season with Nova 94.
