OUR MISSION 

Our mission is to inspire and help players both realize and reach their maximum potential while using the game of basketball as a vehicle to teach and implement life skills and lessons that will not only help them be successful in the game of basketball—but most importantly, in the game of life.

Macon Progress aims to provide players with an elite platform to develop their skills and minimize their weaknesses while teaching 'how' to play the game of basketball correctly. We pride ourselves on having a strong fundamental foundation in all of our teaching with an emphasis on developing the IQ of the player, as well as pushing players to limits that build the character that translates both on & off the court.

"I believe that we are all put on Earth to help each other & to work together. Macon Progress is a platform for me to do just that, help people. It's more than basketball to meit's a lot deeper than that. I don't believe that success in this game, or in life period is about reaching a certain destination, it's all about the process! The hard work that you put in to achieve your goals, the lessons you learn along the way & the character that it builds is priceless! I believe that work ethic is a skill that you can develop with consistent repetition just like any other skill & if you can extract the lessons from your journey & apply it to your everyday life then regardless of the destination you will always come out on top. Sports imitate life! The process is priceless!" - Ty Macon

"EVERY. SINGLE. REP."
