Philosophy for all our clinics is to teach youth fundamental basketballs skills & values in an excellent facility with a positive environment created by the coaches.
Goals of our Clinics:
Teach fundamentals through REPETITION to develop great habits.
Teach sportsmanship - Respect coaches, teammates, opponents & staff and act in a positive manner.
Build Character - Positive attitude (body language too!) on/off court, honesty, responsibility for actions.
Build players confidence, self-esteem and motivate them. Create an environment where players feel comfortable making mistakes and asking questions.
Teach Teamwork – The understanding that basketball is a team sport and the importance of learning to work well with others. Unselfish, caring, rooting for others success, etc.
Teach effort & work ethic - “Hard Work”.
To have all players highly active throughout the clinic (avoid lines!).
Teach basketball vocabulary & terminology.
We want to teach and encourage players (at the appropriate age) how to compete, which is more important than winning/losing at this age. Important for them to know it is ok to fail & make a mistake, in order to grow.
Improve Conditioning/Be Fit.
Importance of stressing priorities - Faith, Family, Academics and then basketball.
