It is our sincerest hope that the tryout process and following basketball season will further support our commitment to teaching student athletes life lessons, athletic fundamentals, and core subject academics.
Our mission is to prepare every child on the team to be highly successful in the classroom, in the community, and on the basketball court. We will accomplish this mission by ensuring the children understand and embrace the honor and respect that are prerequisites to achieving athletic and academic greatness.
