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.


This season we have over 40 girls participating on 4 teams:

The 4th/5th/6th grade team is coached by Beth Altshuler and BrandonKortgaard

The 6th/7th/8th grade team is coached by Jeff Mahan and Ben Dwinal

Coaches consulting with the program are Bill Giampietro, Jim Turner, Ed Hounder and Vince Calvho.
