Mrs. Deetra Linder

Coach Linder is a Jacksonville, FL native attending high school at Edward H. White High where she lettered in Varsity Basketball, Softball, Volleyball and Track &Field. Coach Linder also attended Edward Waters College(University) where she was a member of the Volleyball, Cheerleading, and Track/Cross Country Teams.

After college, Coach Linder was an integral part of the Jacksonville community as she started a career with the Department of Children and Families in the field of child welfare. While working for DCF, she volunteered as a coach and became a certified AAU and USATF Track & Field Coach where she trained the Elite Skills Development Academy during the year and they competed, having many members of the club qualifying for Junior Olympics. It was then she began to love coaching and sought to be able to coach on a broader level. 

In 2019, Coach Linder became a certified teacher and began working at Yulee Middle School. During her first year, she became the Assistant Coach of the YMS Girl's Basketball Team. In 2020, she was promoted to Head Coach of the Middle School Girl's Basketball Varsity and JV Teams. In 2021, YMS won the Nassau County Championship with both the Varsity and the JV teams, with the Varsity team having an undefeated season. Coach Linder became involved in the community in Nassau County over the summer of 2023, as she coached two AAU middle school basketball teams and assisted with the High School AAU team as well. It was the first year that Nassau County had a girls team to compete in AAU basketball, and the season was successful with having players return to play all year long. 

Coaching Philosophy: Coach Linder coaches each athlete to meet their full potential. First, the girls have to love the game. If they love the game, then working hard to get better at their craft should be a no-brainer. “I enjoy helping each and every one of my players grow, on and off the court”.
