Chenango Stories: Courtside lessons

Tom Collier and Tim Foote have built a friendship founded on the fundamentals of volunteering for the community and helping youths succeed.

Tim and Tom have shared a 34-year friendship. They have watched each other grow into adulthood and become professionals and parents along the way. When it came time for Timís son to be coached, Tim explains he was already coaching the basketball team but needed someone else to help out. The men began to coach the team together, and that is when Tim and Tom found their niche.



ďWe share the same vision for the game, but we couldnít really teach our own kids. When my son needed a coach, I turned to Tom, and when his son was old enough, Tom turned to me,Ē said Foote.

Foote and Collier began to coach for the Sayre tournament in Pennsylvania and only five years later found another opportunity to share their experience and expertise with local youths.
