We are a group of people who believe in teaching how to play basketball the right way based on the core values of integrity, hard work, discipline, mutual respect, competitive desire, leadership, and resiliency. Our mission is to develop leaders on and off the court and provide experiences for players to leverage the lessons they learn through sports in all of the other areas of their lives including their homes, school, and community. Our programs and teams are focused on the following goals:

  • To help each player maximize his potential individually
  • To help each team maximize their potential collectively
  • To teach knowledge, skills, and abilities that will help them perform at the next level
  • To develop leaders on and off the court

From over 30 years of experience playing and coaching basketball, we believe focusing on these goals as the primary goals allows winning, success, and impact to take care of themselves. We also help our basketball players and athletes to grow by developing the whole person through mind, body, and spirit:

  • Mind – a unique program to develop resiliency, mental toughness, and leadership skills
  • Body – programs designed to develop players physically and teach them to play basketball the right way leveraging their individual and team strengths
  • Spirit – a focus on growing the spiritual component of their lives
