2019 Boston Globe Division 2 Girls High School Basketball Coach of the Year
After over a decade coaching boys and girls basketball at all levels, from 2nd grade entry to high school elite AAU, Tim Lopes was named Girls Varsity Head Basketball Coach at Pembroke High School in 2018. In his first season as Head Coach, Tim led the Titans to their first ever Patriot League Championship, Massachusetts South Sectional Championship and trip to the Boston Garden representing Division 2 South in the Massachusetts Final Four finishing with a record of 20-5.
Tim has also helped many players navigate the “next steps” in their basketball careers after high school. From educating, guiding and counseling players through the reclassification and post graduate process at prep schools, to advocating for them with college coaches to ensure successful transitions to the college rosters, Tim has been instrumental helping many student athletes through the complicated and sometimes emotional recruiting experience. Tim brings a wealth of institutional knowledge of recruiting, a litany of prep school and collegiate coaching contacts, and a time tested process for the student athletes to use to get the right “fit” academically, socially and athletically. Tim is excited to bring his expertise the the MT Elite Ducks and bring a guiding hand to help Ducks players through the recruiting process.
