Where does competition fit in?
One of our greatest challenges is handling the competitive aspect of our work. Where does winning fit? Hoopaholics is not about winning at all costs, but teaching our players HOW to win:
- We work hard every day in practice, knowing there is always room for improvement
- We win with grace and lose with class.
- We always respect the game, the opponent, and the officials
- We share the passion of the game from our coaches and display this every time we take the court
- We play the game the right way and strive to do the same in our lives
- We want to develop players that compete hard and play to win but are able to take the many lessons learned when they don’t.
