Women’s Head Basketball Coach Hired

By | blog

November 6, 2015–Lehi, UtahCoach Sikander, 1

Khalil Sikander has been selected as the Women’s Head Basketball Coach for Skyridge High School, currently under construction in Lehi, Utah. The school will open in August 2016.

Coach Sikander has twelve years of experience as a head and assistant coach at various high schools and with club teams. He is currently an assistant varsity coach for the men’s basketball team at Mountain View High School, and also coaches with a well-respected AAU travel team at Utah Basketball Club. He was the Head Women’s Basketball Coach at Lehi High School for four years, where during his first season as head coach, the Pioneers were Region Champions and took 3rd place in the state tournament. Coach Sikander then moved to Westlake to help open the school and start the Men’s basketball program. He coached for five years both as a JV and Assistant Head Coach. He travels all over the west coast providing opportunities to help student athletes move on and play collegiately.

A native of Brooklyn, New York, Sikander was a three-year letterman at Telecommunication High School, where he was named to the All-Brooklyn and All-City teams. He was a two year letterman at Colorado Northwest Community College, and a two year letterman at Southern Utah University. He also spent time as a basketball camp counselor at St. Bonaventure University in Olean, New York.

Speaking about leaving the schools he is working with now, Sikander says, “It is difficult to leave students and athletes you have invested in and have seen grow into responsible citizens of their respective communities. I have countless memories of both schools and will always have a place for them in my heart. I’m thankful to Mr. Perkins and Mr. Clinton for their confidence in me and that they have trusted me with this task. It’s an honor to work alongside with individuals who put students first. I’m ecstatic to help create a culture of success at Skyridge and excited to put on that orange and grey.”

Skyridge Principal Joel Perkins says, “Coach Sikander is an enthusiastic and experienced educator who is committed to positively influencing young people’s lives. He has a tremendous amount of experience in coaching both men’s and women’s basketball and we are very excited about what he will bring to our program.”

Coach Sikander has a bachelor’s degree in physical education and a master’s degree in education with an administrative certificate. He and his wife Kim live in Lehi with their four daughters. He loves spending time with his kids and going on vacation with his wife and family and has fallen in love with the beauty of Utah.
