Philosophy

We will try to make the game fun and enjoyable while stressing that basketball is a game of fundamentals.  Fundamentals are the key to success.  We encourage any level of play including beginners to join.  We will try to dictate the level of instruction to the individual needs of the student.  It’s never too early or late to learn.
