Craig Mackey, NJB Manager for Ladera Ranch, Rancho Mission Viejo and Mission Viejo

Craig not only shares the passion for recreational basketball, but also possesses the skills necessary to build and manage our league that is second to none. A quick note from Craig:

I am born and raised in Indiana where basketball is a way of life. Anyone ever seen the movie “Hoosiers”? I played growing up and have been a coach for over 10 years for kids ranging from beginners up through high school varsity basketball. Previously, I was the director of operations for a non-profit basketball and character development organization. I have three kids, two of which you will see out on the floor this NJB season. One non-basketball related thing about me is I love going to National Parks with my family and watching my kids complete the jr. ranger programs.

Thank you!

I also wanted to Express my gratitude for you and coach Daniel's time and passion with the boys on Tuesday night. My husband and I were talking about how we can tell that this is more than a job for the both of you, and it is so heartwarming to see the kids so excited to play and to be pushed.
