Ball2Leader = Empowerment

Determination =

Getting better at basketball requires hard work and a commitment to never give up. Players have to develop the discipline to practice on a daily basis. This cycle promotes improvement through practice and repetition. Players need to maintain their exercise routine whether they win or lose, stay focused and be determined to get better. Successful players learn to use failure as a fuel to come back, bigger and better when they lose, of which will carry over in life.

Discipline =

In order for a player to improve his /her skills on the basketball court and in life, he/she will have to have the determination to work hard on the things he/she need to improve on. Not necessarily the things that are the most fun. Having the willingness to work daily on ones game, players will see results that will motivate them and they will be glad they put in the effort to get better. This will teach players that it’s important to choose what’s best for the long-term instead of seeking instant gratification.

Perserverance =

A player with basketball confidence develops a strong ability to persevere through difficulties. All basketball players experience obstacles and adversity while playing, no matter how long they play the game. Having the drive to do the small things that some players are not willing to do when times are tough separates average players from good players. For example, good players never gave up, not on the play, not in the game and not on themselves in life.

Respect =

Basketball players should have high esteem for coaches, teammates, referees and even their opponents. This trait should be the foundation and building block for all players on the basketball court as well as in life. Players should understand that it is far more important to have due regards for others compared to just being a good basketball player. Without esteem for others it is difficult to get anywhere in life.

Teamwork =

TOGETHER EVERYONE ACHIEVES MORE
You can’t play basketball on your own. It’s a team sport and this means your players have to interact with others, both on their team and the opposing side. They will learn how to work with their team and build a sense of camaraderie. You will always be a more successful player when playing with others if everyone’s on the same page, all focused on achieving the same goals. Players will discover that their best chance of success will be through cooperation with their teammates and that this is the same on the basketball court and in life.

Work Ethic =

Youth uncover a new level of determination and elevate skills

All basketball players experience obstacles and adversity while playing, no matter how long they play the game. Having the drive to do the small things that some players are not willing to do when times are tough separates average players from good players.
