Please Keep Preparing!

1% Better. 1 Day At A Time.

Please continue to take the COVID-19 pandemic seriously and make healthy choices!

The impacts of this pandemic are evident in the tremendous efforts being invested to get the academic year launched.

While decisions are yet to be made about the winter sports seasons, the personal commitment to improve yourself on a day-to-day basis remains as important as ever. The concept is bigger than basketball, although it does apply to the game.

If you haven't already,, identify your 2020-21 team and personal goals. And then, with those in mind, intentionally/purposefully  choose to improve your basketball skills.

Remember, too, that doesn't always require having a ball in your hands.
