Program Philosophy

Our program forms student-athletes in the Graduate at Graduation through the vehicle of basketball. Our vision is to have a program in which students and adults feel better prepared to serve others and to live Christ-like lives as the result of experiencing our basketball program.

Our players become more selfless and feel more connected to the world beyond themselves and basketball as the result of the lessons learned and experiences had within the context of basketball in our program.

We are a tough, determined, and tenacious team, grounded by a commitment to communicate honestly, openly, and consistently with each other. Our identity is displayed by our effort and willingness to defend relentlessly while playing selflessly and aggressive on the offensive end.

As coaches, we take great pride in helping our players find virtue and joy in the difficulties associated with competition. We take great joy in executing simple plays and find tremendous satisfaction in knowing that simple does not equate to easy.
