TEAM PRIDE BASKETBALL CLUB


WHAT IS TEAM PRIDE BASKETBALL?

TEAM PRIDE Basketball is a new organization that formed to get young men and young women into the sport of basketball and to form a brother hood/sisterhood that will last a lifetime.

MISSION:

TEAM PRIDE is committed to assisting young men and women in becoming men/women of integrity with high self-esteem. We strive to help them grow spiritually, socially and physically.

GOAL:

To teach young men/women that they can play basketball and grow in other areas of life. Also to form a brotherhood/sisterhood for the boys/girls outside the sport of basketball.Our teams will choose an activity to do together as brother/sister once a month, we will have open discussions that will stay between the family, we will have a homework support group, the players will have to maintain a good GPA to sustain a position on the team, and we will also do plenty of fundraising activities to support our teams.

VISION:

The Team Pride Basketball Program is committed to providing its student – athletes with opportunities of personal and developmental growth by reinforcing Positive Attitudes, Self Confidence and Responsibility & Accountability.

Also instilling the 4 D’s: Dedication, Determination, Discipline & Desire to excel on and off the court. Athletes will be placed in a setting where they can achieve their academic and competitive goal.

The Team Pride Basketball Club strives to educate and motivate each member while encouraging Leadership, Team Work, Sportsmanship and fun through the spirit of the game - Basketball.
