Mark Kratina

Lady Mustangs Director

This is my third season coaching in the Lady Mustangs basketball program as I will be taking on double duty this year coaching the 3rd & 6th grade teams. I have coached basketball and softball for eight seasons through the YMCA, our Lady Mustang program, and Millard United. I have always felt that a good coach should be an excellent communicator, set a good example for the kids, and be a good ambassador for the program toward the area basketball community. I believe in playing good, aggressive defense, too, so if coaches can pull that off it’s a bonus.

My goals for our program are to develop our girls’ skills on the court through practice and off-season training/camps and I am committed to providing every resource necessary to that end. I also love the idea of a larger Millard North community that helps and supports each other on and off the court. I think we have solid coaches in our program who are great men of character and who will set great examples for our girls.

In my spare time, I am a civil litigation attorney and a big New York Yankees fan. I have written three novels and once hit a ball into the left-field corn at the Field of Dreams in Dyersvilla, Iowa.

Go Mustangs!

Vice President

I started coaching basketball in 1995 when I returned to work with and learn from my high school coach Tim Owen at Fairfield College Preparatory school in Fairfield, Connecticut. As an assistant, lead scout and head coach of the Freshman program, Fairfield Prep won the Class LL state championship in boys basketball in 1997. From that point forward, I was hooked on this great sport. I moved to Omaha, NE in 2002 and have since coached youth basketball at different levels of play. Most recently, I finished coaching for the Lady Mustangs between 2014-2017 and now coach and direct within the Jr. Mustangs program. My coaching focus is on basketball fundamentals, especially coaching team defense. On any team that I have coached, the foundation has always been 4 things: Playing Hard, Playing Together, Playing Smart and Having Fun. Our goal is to impart these core beliefs within our program and prepare our players for the next level. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to coach your player and GO MUSTANGS!
