Our coaching team uses the basics to build the foundation of the game. They teach athletes to hone their craft from dribbling, passing, and shooting the ball. Those basics are then translated in life: athletes are encouraged to practice in the classroom first through focus and discipline. Coaches then apply these practices into “game time” situations through competitive basketball.
We hold everyone involved in our organization to the highest regard and pride ourselves with integrity. Parents, athletes, coaches, officials, and all those engaged in our program are expected to show the utmost respect. Our goal is to build wholesome young individuals who take pride in themselves and their actions.
We believe that the basketball court is an extension of the classroom. Our goal is to teach young athletes the importance of making decisions and taking responsibility in its results both good and bad. As our coaches design plays to help execute favorable results on the court, athletes will learn to design their own plans in life to achieve their goals. Our coaches require each athlete to set goals for themselves and in return will measure their progress and provide feedback to both parent and athlete.
Athletes are made aware of their social responsibility to themselves, parents, coaches, and the athletic community and are expected to show respect for the game and all those they encounter including opponents and referees.
We encourage positive contribution to local communities through our “Give Back” program. We reach out to local organization and dedicate time for community service. Athletes take an active role in making a difference in their communities through fundraising, donations, and volunteer time.
Whether it is on or off the court, athletes are empowered to take leadership roles and are encouraged to actively participate and contribute to the game. Our team of coaches motivate them through positive reinforcement and allow them to learn and grow through the game of basketball.
F.I.E.R.C.E Basketball is a youth organization designed to assist in the wholesome development of young athletes both on and off the court. This program will serve as an extension of the classroom implementing the importance of being a student first and an athlete second. Our goal is to commit to the lives of young people by promoting leadership and commitment while fostering an environment that embraces pro-social relationships and interpersonal skills. Through our program, coaches and parents will collaborate together to serve as a combined support system in achieving success in the classroom, on the court, and in real life.
F.I.E.R.C.E Basketball differentiates itself through its approach on the game. Our coaching staff is carefully selected to fulfill our core values. We pride ourselves with a passionate team that serves as mentors and can motivate a group of young athletes to reach their fullest potential.
