PHILOSOPHY & MISSION STATEMENT

Our physical preparation and training approach is a principle based holistic one. We utilize the most appropriate training methods and means for each individual athlete based on their needs, end goals, and baseline readiness. It is an athlete-centered process that focuses on the development and enhancement of physical qualities that underpin the general and specific needs of the basketball athlete. Our primary objective is to logically and progressively expose our student-athletes to the appropriate acute and long-term training stimulus in an effort to illicit positive physical and mental adaptations necessary to build a more durable and biologically powerful basketball player.
