Philosophy

Coaching is a privilege. To be in a position to influence young athletes at such a formative time in their lives is a tremendous responsibility. Our coaches are committed to providing athletes with every opportunity to improve their basketball skills while at the same time creating an environment that allows each individual to attain their greatest potential both as a player and as a person.

Core Areas of Focus

By focusing on our five core areas, we have built a solid infrastructure for developing young athletes.

Fundamentals

- Fundamentals are the foundation for both individual and team success. Players who concentrate on the little things get better little by little. Weekly skills sessions will be offered focusing on fundamental skills needed to be successful.

Communication

- Coaches will establish an honest and open relationship with both players and parents. Players and parents will receive frequent feedback on the development of each individual.

Respect

- Players should respect themselves, their teammates, their coaches and the Game at all times. Players should be willing to accept discipline in order for them to become better players.

teaching

- Our goal is to teach each individual player how to be a part of something bigger than themselves. Each coach's goal is to take a collection of individuals and turn them into a TEAM.

Practice

- It is imperative for each player to attend all scheduled practices and games in order to achieve both individual and team success.

Team Success

Our program is built on the TEAM concept. Individual goals will be achieved through TEAM success. Our teams will be built on physical preparation and aggressiveness.

Offense

- Swish teams play an up-tempo style placing constant pressure on the defense. Our goal is to shoot lay-ups first followed by free throws and then 3pt shots. We will utilize an attacking penetrating style to accomplish this goal. We do not focus on running plays rather teaching players How to Play.

Defense

- Swish teams are known for their relentless baseline to baseline pressure defense. Our goal is to constantly make the opposing team feel uncomfortable. We will change defensive looks regularly to accomplish this goal. Everything we do will be based on out working our opponent.
