Welcome to

Welcome to  The original intent of this website was to serve as the official home of the Orinda Matadors Basketball Club, which was the off-season entity for the Miramonte High School (Orinda, CA) Varsity Men's basketball program.  In the spring of 2003, a group parents voiced their displeasure in the coaching style of 38 year veteran coach Tom Blackwood, mostly due in part because his son Chris was the star of the varsity team in 2002-2003. The direct actions of these parents resulted in Mr. Blackwood stepping down as head basketball coach, and Chris Blackwood transferring to another school. In late June 2003, the Orinda Matador Basketball Club was disbanded permanently. (For more information on the Blackwoods' story, please see the following link .) is in the process of restructuring our website and in the future will move in a "new" direction. We appreciate your patience as we are updating our website.
