What are youth basketball programs and basketball training supposed to really do if only 1% make it?
Youth basketball programs are supposed to prepare and teach kids the value of teamwork, hard work, discipline, effort, learning, and building their passions around the habits they develop in what they love doing.
It's that simple--competitive basketball is a finite game, but life, work, and family keeps going. How do we succeed in these other things?
What we are doing at Basketball Kids Chicago is helping teach the purpose of what sport is-- to improve their game through understanding the process. As a former European professional and NBA (cup of tea) player, I learned the beauty of sports is in the journey. The journey. The journey. Many people in sports call this the process.
By enjoying the process, we always focus on working as hard as we can in every drill, in every practice, and by doing this, we are learning how to be a good teammate. This will go far in life. Basketball is a sport that teaches us to break down barriers and understand diversity, goal-setting, and working hard to build skills.
I hope you come join our Basketball Kids Youth Basketball Programs in West Loop, Chicago.
