In 2010 Kiser became the head coach at Regis High School. In his three years he has led his teams to an overall conference record of 35-7. At Regis he has coached his teams to two conference titles and a third place finish in state. He received coach of the year honors in the Tri-River Conference for the last two seasons. During the summer Kiser coaches at Camp Cascade, founded by legendary Oregon high school coach Barry Adams. Kiser credits his success to the great coaches he has played and coached under including George Libbon and David Abderhalden. “I’ve been lucky enough to learn from coaches like Jamie McCarty, Coach Libbon, Abderhalden and Dobrkosky. These coaches have equipped me with tools to become a successful coach and teach kids to play the game the right way.”
The Stars are excited about the addition of a passionate young coach like Joe Kiser. He will bring energy and a winning attitude to the 2013 Stars!
