YOUTH DEVELOPMENT: MEANINGFUL CONNECTION
Youth need safe, in-person interaction to feel seen, heard and valued. We provide youth with the tools to support them in utilizing their own inherent inner strength. We create spaces for social and emotional learning that starts with youth.
Our basketball programming is community-based and focuses on mind and skills development. No basketball experience is required. We focus on the attitude and mindset of learning through a growth mindset and individual drills, lessons, and skills to use on and off the court. Basketball is a means to improving the ways in which we see and show up in our communities. We offer individual training, group training, and basketball camp and team coaching from kindergarten to a collegiate level.
Goal setting is a skill set that we teach through all of our work. Together we create a pathway to achieving goals by creating a space/circle where Indigenous people learn how to create a goal and achieve it. We teach that there is no judgement in adjusting our life path. This is a growth mindset: to learn that challenges provide the opportunity to grow.
