I have had the pleasure of coaching for 25 years High School /Travel Basketball and Football. My mission is to utilize basketball to enhance the lives of young student athletes and their families.  I offer assistance and instruction on how to play the game of basketball, not only to enhance physical skills but the mental toughness of our kids as well. I use coaching as an incentive to motivate our athletes to excel as students and members of society.  I enjoy seeing the educational and spiritual uplifting for these young student athletes. Ultimately, I derive true satisfaction when kids and their families are touched in a positive way.  I expect my players and coaches to act with character, discipline, responsibility and respect for others.

Favorite Verse: Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.

Josh Gross, Club Director, says, "Upward Stars Charlotte seeks to hire coaches that are seasoned, understand the game and have a passion for youth. Coach Bell fits the bill perfectly and we're excited and grateful to add him to our coaching staff."
