There is no better feeling than helping someone reach their goals and better themselves on and off the court.

Basketball Coach

Name: Jordan Gold

Position: Basketball and Soccer Coach

Favorite Quote: Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.

Coach Jordan is a graduate of Temple University where he earned his Bachelors Degree in Media Studies and Production. He grew up in Northeast Philadelphia where he developed his love for the game of basketball playing year round since he was 5 years old in Recreational and Police Athletic Leagues.

Jordan went on to attend Wilson Middle School and made the Basketball team all 3 years before his family moved out to Colmar, PA. From there he attended Penndale Middle School where he made the 9th grade team before heading to North Penn. After making the 10th grade team at North Penn a coaching regime change took place, and with it the removal of the 10th grade team in his Junior year. After removing the 10th grade team, the new coach then forced all the Juniors to have to make Varsity or nothing; He just missed the cut.

Feeling down about not making the team, Jordan was given an anonymous opportunity to become a “People to People” Sports Ambassador where he joined 1 of 2 teams made up of athletes from all over the USA to compete in the “World Sports Cup” in Vienna, Austria during the summer of 2009. It was a week long tournament playing against teams made up of athletes from France, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic and more. Jordan’s team made it to the Bronze medal game where they came out victorious against the other team from the United States. Jordan came home and continued to play in recreational leagues until he attended Temple University. While he was there, Jordan became a practice player for the Temple University Women’s Basketball team playing against numerous athletes who have gone on to play in the WNBA and overseas and he also became an assistant coach for the Tilden Middle School Girls Basketball team, helping coach them all the way to the City Semi Finals.

Coach Jordan is extremely passionate about the game of basketball and now spends his free time looking to give back and share his love of the game with the younger generation. He looks forward to being able to help the athletes that come through CAL Sports to develop their skills and go on to become successful basketball players when they get older.
