About Us

DSC_8602_5994The Ambush was organized by Coach Noel Potter and Jim Turner in the Summer of 2012 to provide 4th – 8th grade girls in the area the opportunity to learn and play basketball at a more competitive level, preparing them for the Erie High School basketball team.

The Ambush is not a “club” team.  We are not recruiting girls from other areas to create teams.  We are not a basketball business.

Our focus is simply to get girls in the area playing together under one basketball system in the philosophy and style of the Erie High School team.
