How long has this group been playing together?
A few of our guys have been playing together since 2nd and 3rd grade. I’ve been coaching this group since 5th grade.
What are somethings your program focuses on?
One of my main focuses is of course to get these boys ready for high school and help them develop into the best players they can become. But my goal is to teach them life lessons through basketball and get them ready for life after basketball as well. A couple ways we do that is by teaching them how to handle adversity, how to become leaders, and instilling confidence into each player.
