PHILOSOPHY

Involvement in an AAU and YBOA basketball program should be a positive experience for coaches, parents and most importantly players. The AAU philosophy of “sport for sports sake” support this expectation, as does the goal established for our basketball that “Opportunity should be available for self-improvement and advancement…without undue pressure and over expectations”.

The SCA Dragons approach to competitive basketball is to provide each player an opportunity to develop a youth player’s basketball skills and become a better player in hopes of preparing that individual for competition at the high school level. This is accomplished by practice sessions and scheduling of tournaments and games against the highest but appropriate level of competition. This competition coupled with a player’s sincere commitment to basketball and a diligent work ethic will produce positive results.

A successful AAU and YBOA experience happens when parents, coaches, and players keep their priorities in proper order and work together.
