Basketball Boys Varsity
2018 - 2019
Boys Basketball Program Philosophy
At Colorado Academy we build our boys’ basketball program with athletes who exhibit good character, self-discipline, and academic achievement. Each player and coach will be held accountable for the following basketball program’s core values which include: Trust and Integrity, Accountability, Respect, Teamwork, Commitment, Loyalty, Sacrifice and Perseverance. The coaching staff will create a culture for every Colorado Academy basketball player to strive for excellence, work hard, play unselfishly, develop a winning attitude, improve daily and most importantly, to strive to reach their highest potential. I firmly believe that every season can be a successful season by simply staying on course and focusing on the process. The desire to win, to get better, and to believe in each other is something that I push all of my athletes to feel in all things that we do.
