Apple Valley Christian School is pleased to introduce one of our newest staff members, Athletic Director, Mrs. Anna Dees.
Anna, please tell us a little about yourself.
“Hi! My name is Anna Dees. I have lived in the High Desert for 31 years. I married my best friend, Richard Dees, in 2006 and we moved to Apple Valley. I graduated from Sultana High School in Hesperia, where I played volleyball and basketball, then later returned to become the Head Volleyball Coach. After a three-year break, I returned to coaching and accepted a position at AVCS in the fall of 2017. I have coached since 2007. I love my husband, Fall, sports, my dogs and cat, video games, breakfast food, Esther 4:14, Isaiah 49:16, and making people feel known and welcome. My desire is to serve the Lord by serving student-athletes. God has honored my desire and I am excited for what the Lord has in store for us at AVCS!”
We are very excited to have you here at AVCS. What sort of sports will AVCS have this year?
In the Fall, we are offering High School and Middle School Boys and Girls Volleyball. For Winter we are offering HS Boys and Girls Basketball and MS Baseball and Softball. In the Spring, we are offering HS Baseball and Softball and MS Boys and Girls Basketball. Our goal is to build a solid base with these three sports and, as the Lord brings more students into our program, we want to offer more sports.
How can we help with the sports program?
AVCS is looking for coaches for middle school sports and high school sports. If you are interested, please contact Coach Anna at firstname.lastname@example.org or at the school, (760) 995-3516.
We also work with the Town of Apple Valley for use of the gym and fields at the community center. AVCS provides volunteers for Town events in exchange for use of these facilities. This year we need volunteers for the triathlon, and later for youth basketball league.
The triathlon is on Saturday, September 22nd in the morning at the civic center in Apple Valley. We are required to provide 50 volunteers for this event. All athletes will be required to attend and we need other students, parents, and faculty to volunteer as well. This will also satisfy community service requirements for students of AVCS.
Will AVCS be providing any spirit wear this year?
Yes, this would be a great way to support APPLE VALLEY CHRISTIAN SCHOOL ATHLETICS. Go to shop.fancloth.com/92308/424705 to see our custom gear.
The web store is only open until August 24th so place your orders now! If you have any questions, please contact Coach Anna Dees at AVCS.
Where can I go to see a schedule of the games this year?
We will be posting full schedules and locations on our website. You can just go to the top menu and go to programs and then select the sport you are interested in. I will post the schedule once the season begins.
Thank you, Coach Anna, for bringing your coaching style and love of sports to Apple Valley Christian School.
