Tim Thomas, former NBA player, is officially the Director of the Athletics Operations and Head Basketball Coach for Pioneer Academy. Thomas spent 13 seasons shining in the NBA. MEET THE NEW DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS!
There is a ton of excitement around Pioneer Eagles about its move to get involved with athletics. Thomas, who has never shied away from giving back to the community, had always wanted to get involved with an Academy and Pioneer’s academic prowess made it the ideal fit for him. He hopes to build a program that succeeds in all aspects – educationally and athletically – for years to come as a member of the school board.
Pioneer Eagles will enter new season with big aspirations of competing at the highest level. With a couple new faces and some returning ones, the eagles basketball team will take on its most vigorous schedule to date with almost 30 games including games against some of the top returning teams in new jersey and one of the top 5 teams in the country in Putnam and Olympus prep. We will have a team of 16 student athletes who will be coached by coaches Ismael Rosado and Daniel Trapp. With the schedule 95% completed we look forward to the community and school support.
The Pioneer Academy will also be rolling out a high school girls basketball, middle boys and girls team, elementary boys and girls team starting new season.
