Central Florida Wildcats Place 5th in YBOA National Championships!!!

The Central Florida Wildcats played in their first YBOA National Championships the week of June 26th - July 2nd, 2011.  The boys won all of their Pool Play games against teams from Georgia and South Carolina.  They went 6 - 1 during the tournament and placed 5th!

The Coaches purpose is to instill in the players that there is more than Basketball.  They love the game and are competitive, yet they also know that God gave them their talents and that they are to be used as a platform to be a blessing to others.  It is also a way they learn how to respond, handle adversity, and success as a young Christian man.

The team has done fundraisers all season to pay for the opportunity to play a game they love.  The players have earned their season and have learned social skills and professionalism in the process.

Here are other Tournament Results for the Central Florida Wildcats:

3rd/4th place in the AAU Disney Spring Tournament at the ESPN Wide World of Sports!!!

This weekend the Central Florida Wildcats visited Mickey and Minnie Mouse at the AAU Disney Spring Tournament located at the beautiful ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, FL. April 1st-3rd, 2011.  The team reached the "Final Four" playing a variety of teams from Florida.  It is a blessing to see the players learning more with each and every game.  They are learning the meaning of "Team Basketball".  They continue to experience what it is like to play with adversity and still prevail, having success and winning, as well as learning from a defeat.  This experience is priceless!

By reaching the Final Four in this tournament it also earned them another Bid to play in the AAU National Tournament in Hampton, VA. July 18th-24th, 2011.  Fantastic Job Boys!!!
