- Coaching staff will provide intense, competitive, and game-applicable practices for all members of the program. 

- All levels will have the opportunity to review game film of themselves in order to improve through "HUDL", including "team film sessions" for all levels.  

- The varsity team will keep updated statistics in order to track progress and areas of improvement for the team and for individual improvement. 

- The varsity team will have "scouting report sessions" where we have a look into our opponents personnel and what they run for every game. 

- The coaching staff will provide an enormous amount of opportunities in the off season to improve players skill development, strength, and explosion. 

- The coaching staff will help foster a culture of unselfish passing, taking good shots, taking care of the basketball, crashing the offensive glass, and pushing the ball up the floor. 

- The coaching staff will help foster a culture of hard-nosed defense where we take pride in getting stops, taking charges, diving on the floor for loose balls, and not allowing O Boards. 

- The coaching staff will teach players throughout the program "how to play" and not just a bunch of plays -> we want better basketball players by the end of the year, not just more plays.
