Our Mission


Our mission is to work vigorously to inspire our athletes to not only set life goals, but understand how to achieve these goals by encouraging development of a strong moral character and reaching for a championship level of commitment to success.

Along the way, we will make the effort to understand and get to know each individual
to help guide them in a direction that is destined for success in life after basketball.
