“I have always been proud to say that I played at Simi Valley High School and watching the program 20 years later I am still proud to be associated with the program. The bar was set high early by Coach Hawking and through the years and ending with Coach Aurand it has stayed there.”
Don MacLean
Coach Aurand is an outstanding basketball coach and I have really enjoyed his Blueprint Basketball website and fund raising packages. Lots of great information to learn from!
Rob Hamner, Head Coach at Rancho Mirage HS Basketball
In light of all that is bad in the AAU circuit, Coach Aurand is a great example of what is right in youth sports. He is not only knowledgable about the game of basketball, but more important to me and my family he is a man of integrity that cares about his players. My son had a great experience playing under Coach Aurand.
Michael Garrity, Teacher at Servite HS
Coach Aurand is one of the best basketball coaches in Southern California and beyond — very steeped in fundamentals as well as in-game strategy. He always gets the best out of his available talent!
Frank Burlison, BurlisonOnBasketball
The Simi Valley High School Basketball Program changed my life and taught me that there’s more to basketball then just basketball. The skill/ life development, confidence, work ethic, teamwork, and heart that Coach Aurand puts into the program becomes part of every player that walks into the Pioneer Gym! Coach Aurand developed me into a Top 100 player in the nation and allowed me to be recruited by many Division I schools.
Dustin Villepigue #30
You should be so lucky if your son gets the chance to play hoops for Coach Aurand. I don’t care if you’re the best player on the court or the last one off the bench. The three hours a day practicing and learning from Coach Aurand are PRICELESS. I live in Utah now and would give anything to have my two young boys get taught by the best. I know under Coach Aurand you’re being tutored in the game of life and basketball by a man and coach who really cares how you are progressing.
