Idaho Elite Names Girls Basketball Director

I’m very excited to announce the addition of Candace Thornton to our Idaho Elite coaching ranks, as the Director of Girls Basketball.

Candace recently moved to Eagle, ID from Utah’s Cache Valley, where she was the Girls Varsity Head Basketball Coach for Mountain Crest High School ( 4A) for two years. While at Mountain Crest HS, she led her team to a Utah 4A State Championship Finals ( 2012), coached the Utah 4A All Star team ( 2012) and helped 4 of her players receive college scholarships . In addition, she was an Assistant Coach for West Side High School (Dayton, ID), played at the collegiate level for Northern Colorado University, and was a USA Junior Nationals MVP and All- Valley Player of the Year while playing for West Side High School . She is married ( Eli, who works for Primary Health as an NP), and has 3 daughters.

Her mission is to grow our Idaho Elite girls program organically – currently, IEB has one 7th grade girls team. Our vision is to eventually have girls teams from 5th-8th grade, along with starting a girls high school travelling team. She understands that she needs to do all this while upholding our club’s values embodied in the 3 Pillars – Character, Commitment and Teamwork.

Please join me in welcome Candace to the Idaho Elite family, and stay tuned for a FREE skills clinic for 5th-HS aged girls coming at the end of August. Candace will be running this clinic, so players and parents will have a chance to meet Candace in person. Check our website for updates – www.idahoelitebasketball.com.

Have a great rest of the summer and Go Elite!
