OVERVIEW

Team Progress is a year-round competitive basketball program that offers both boys & girls teams for grades 3rd through 8th, with our elite level tournament teams being offered for grades 6th through 12th. We are all about development and teaching! Our main goal is not to see how many youth championships we can win, but to develop & teach players how to play the game of basketball properly while helping put players in the best position possible for the next step towards their futures. Most importantly we strive to use the game of basketball as a vehicle to teach the game of life while building high character people that can make a positive impact on & off the court.

COACHING

At Team Progress we pride ourselves on being able to offer high-quality instruction from coaches with high-level playing experience and/or elite coaching experience. Our focus is to teach, inspire & help players reach their highest potential. We ask the same of our coaches' as we do of our players, which is to constantly strive to learn and grow daily in the game of basketball—and to be high character people striving to make a positive impact in the lives of others as well as being leaders in the community. All of our coaches are both NCAA Certified and USA Basketball Certified Licensed coaches and have passed extensive background checks.

ACADEMICS

We feel that it is our responsibility to help prepare our players for the next level of their lives both on and off the court. Sports imitate life, and aside from being a necessity for playing basketball at the high school and collegiate levels, we believe that academics are essential in helping create a strong foundation for our futures. So, in order to set the standard early, we have academic requirements in our program for all ages. In order to be a part of our program, we require that all players carry a minimum GPA of 2.5 or higher. Failure to do so will result in the player losing playing time and/or missing games until there is a proper plan in place for the player to get back on track academically. We will be doing frequent grade checks throughout each season to make sure players stay on top of their school work.

COLLEGE RECRUITMENT CONSULTING

Alongside player development, college recruitment exposure is one of our main focuses for our older players. Coaches can't recruit what they don't see! For players who aspire to play beyond high school, a big part of getting recruited by Colleges & Universities is playing in elite-level exposure tournaments and succeeding. However, we don't rely solely on success in exposure tournaments as being the only way for our players to be scouted by coaches. We provide resources to help with the college recruiting process & market our players to schools of all levels year-round. By no means can we guarantee a scholarship or placement, but our goal is to help as many players as possible find opportunities at the college level.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

We believe that it is our duty to be a strong positive staple in the community. It is a privilege to be able to play the game of basketball & not everyone is fortunate enough to have the opportunities that we have within our program. We want everyone in our program to be able to fully understand that privilege, so with that, we will be having different events during each season where we will be giving back to the less fortunate within our community, that our players will be required to attend.

PLAYING TIME

As a competitive program, playing time is not always guaranteed to be equal. Our goal as a program is to be able to provide every player with meaningful minutes, however, that is not always possible due to circumstances within the game, and ultimately the coaches will decide which minutes the player will (or will not) receive. We will not have conversations with parents about playing time, however, we can discuss how and what your child can improve on.

CODE OF ETHICS

In order for us to keep a positive environment and culture, all players, coaches & parents will be required to adhere to a strict code of conduct. Both parents & players will also be required to sign a code of conduct contract. Failure to sign and/or comply with the contract can result in removal from participation in team activities immediately. Review the full code of ethics contract here.
