I wanted to take the time to welcome you into our program. It is an honor to have the opportunity to guide you through your high school years, using basketball as a vehicle to success. My staff and I are looking forward to a season filled with excitement and achievement, on and off the court.
For some of you this is your first time experiencing high school athletics, so let me assure you it is not like recreation, AAU or elementary school league. It’s most certainly not like going outside to play with friends. High school athletics is all year round, and consists of academic, social, community, fundraising, and athletics activities. Players are expected to attend all team functions, with no excuses. Each day, workout, practice and game builds on the previous one, so inconsistency, and frequent tardiness or absents is unacceptable and counter-productive. In order to maintain a solid program, academically, socially, and athletically, there must 100% commitment by the players, parents and coaches. It is this commitment that allows us to guarantee growth and development. However, inconsistency and lack of commitment can only guarantee failure. Our program is designed to provide a blue print for success. We cannot be held responsible for little to no progress, due to deviation from our plan by parents or players. You will get from the program what you put into it, no more and no less.
We are running a basketball program designed to shape young men into productive men. By you reading, understanding and following the steps on the following pages, you will guarantee growth at one level or another. If we’re all on the same page and in constant communication, we can keep you on the road to success.
