Coach also directs South Kitsap volleyball program

PORT ORCHARD — Physical education instructor CJ Scott has been selected as the new girls basketball coach at South Kitsap High School, according to a news release from the school district.

Scott, who also is a South Kitsap High graduate, has extensive coaching experience and currently coaches the Wolves’ volleyball team, said DJ Sigurdson, the district’s executive director of School and Family Support.

“I’m excited to start working with the players and helping them reach their full potential,” Scott said in the release.

Before joining South Kitsap High, the new girls basketball coach taught PE at Sidney Glen Elementary for 21 years. He has a bachelor’s degree in physical education from Eastern Washington University and a master’s degree in education from Heritage College.

“Coach Scott was the top choice from all the groups in the interview process,” Sigurdson said. “We were lucky to have a competitive applicant pool and students, staff and parents represented on the interview panel. It will be fun to watch Coach Scott’s leadership develop the girls basketball program.”

Scott’s selection will go before the South Kitsap School District’s board of directors June 19 for its formal approval.
