Coach Kara is currently an Associate Head Junior Varsity Coach at Woodbridge High School in Irvine, Ca. Coach Kara is an  Orange County native and played at Woodbridge High School and a short stint at the University of La Verne. While at WHS Coach Kara was a defensive specialist and point guard who was expected to control the offense particularly in half court sets and help with extra possessions and easy baskets. His tenacious work ethic and motivation to help his team in anyway earned him league defensive MVP in 1999 and a spot on the Orange Coast College basketball team under Coach Hill. Coach Kara’s main goal is to bring basketball knowledge to young athletes. So many times coaches are credited as a good coach when a natural athlete joins a team, but the goal of OC Select is to take natural and unnatural athletes and give them a higher level of basketball IQ. A player getting bigger and stronger is not the same as an athlete actually improving. Beyond the AAU level there are lots of big strong athletes, the ones that understand the game and fine tune their skills are the players who are successful. That is the foundation Select is built on.  How to play team defense, team offense and a working knowledge of playing within a system is what Coach Kara is great at.  He has been working with higher level club players for over 7 years and understands what young players need in order to grow into successful high school athletes. His success as an AAU coach is widely recognized in the OC area and his investment to building a great program shows day to day on the practice court, game court and off the court. Together with his hand selected staff the goal is to “Play The Right Way”!


Coach Oz is the 13U Platinum head coach and has been coaching with OC Select for over 4 years. After playing at University High in Irvine, Oz went on to play for the Afghan National team in Qatar and China. He is most known for his crafty footwork around the basketball and his natural and calculated ways of getting to the basket. His knowledge and passion for the game is exemplified in the way he articulates the aspects of basketball to his players.Utilizing a calm yet stern approach to coaching, Oz is a player favorite!

Coach Johnson is committed to the development of young athletes and currently assists in the development of all of our players. He has a gritty and tenacious approach towards defense and a knack for teaching young players toughness, offensive skills and implementation of team play. He is a great mentor and coach for your athletes club/aau basketball needs.
