Our Coaching Team & Program Philosophy:
With exemplary leaders and enriching environments, we believe all young people have the potential to grow into integral and thriving human beings capable of contributing immensely to their families, teams, schools, communities and the planet. Given this belief, we use the game of basketball as a fun, safe, and challenging platform to help develop young people's values, knowledge and skills toward the betterment of self, others and the world.
Our leagues, camps and programs are designed to help players develop both their character and basketball skills – to become full circle (or 360 degree) leaders on and off the court! We embrace a holistic approach to learning, leadership and basketball development. Our coaches lead by example and hold distinguished backgrounds in education, human thriving/performance research and advanced coaching. Some of our coaches also have experience playing and/or coaching at the collegiate (NCAA/CIS) and professional level (NBA/FIBA).
We take an integrative and research based approach to learning and basketball development in which our professional and experienced coaches draw upon the following 5 pillars of learning:
Learning to know
Learning to do
Learning to be
Learning to live, work & play with others
Learning to impact team, family, society & environment
We believe every young person in the community deserves an opportunity to play organized sports and to nurture their life-skills (regardless of their financial status). As such, our programs offer financial supports (via community resources and MDT scholarship) to any player not having sufficient funds to participate. The details for these opportunities can be found in the registration process or through correspondence with email@example.com.
360 Playing Beyond The Game Creed
The duration of a well played game is only a few minutes, while the journey for it may take many years of hard work and excellent character. Remember the real value of sport is not in winning or performing in the limelight of applause but by the virtues learned, practiced and lived within and beyond the athletic realm. The applause soon fades away, the statistics forgotten, the trophy is left behind, but the character, friendships and legacy you build are yours forever.
