Roosevelt HS Girls Basketball


My name is Michael Wright. I am currently the head coach for the Roosevelt High School Girls basketball program, and I'm also the head coach for the C I soccer and softball programs. I’ve been on the coaching staff for the girls’ basketball program since the 2004-2005 season. I’ve been the head coach since the 2008-2009 season. Since I became head coach, we have won two city conference championships and one twin city championship. I’ve also been a two-time conference coach of the year and 2012-2013 section 3AAA coach of the year. All schedules and roster information are available on the website.

I am a husband of 36 years to my wife Anita. We have seven daughters and one son who all attended Roosevelt High School. I graduated from Minneapolis North High school. I have coached girls and boys AAU basketball for twenty plus years.

                                                                           Coaching Philosophy:

My mission at Roosevelt High School is to field a team that excels on the court, achieves in the classroom, and positively impacts our school and community. We value players putting academic school work first over basketball play. Every athlete in our program will be treated with respect and dignity as we strive to reach our potential as a team and as individuals. We will honor the great game of basketball by always playing with class, within the rules, and as hard as we physically can. All athletes are expected to be the best student they can be. They are expected to go to class, be on time, make good decisions in class, complete assignments, and establish a plan that leads to their graduation. I enjoy working with the Roosevelt student athletes to achieve all their goals.
