From Donna . . . I believe that every athlete should be given the opportunity to discover their full potential, pushed out of their comfort zone to achieve their goals. their character is far more important to me than their talent, if they are prepared to work hard, then I can teach them the skills – the effort has to come from the individual. I aim to help young athletes be well rounded, oncourt, in the classroom/workforce and in the community. I strive to enhance the basketball talents of my players, while developing their leadership skills, decision making, resilience, work ethic and self discipline.
