Who has really changed?

“You Know what makes me sick to my stomach ? When I hear grown people say that kids have changed. Kids haven’t changed. Kids don’t know anything about anything. We’ve changed as adults. We demand less of kids.We expect less of kids. We make their lives easier instead of preparing them for what life is truly about. Were the ones that have changed.”

Frank Martin
Head SC Basketball Coach

Choose who you are as an athlete..


While there are physical elements necessary to be considered a great athlete, the most important characteristics are all choices that athletes make and all within every athlete’s control. “Like what?” you might ask. Having a teachable spirit, integrity, discipline, mental toughness, accountability, and selflessness are critical to becoming a truly great athlete. The beauty of each of these is they require no special skill, talent, or physical qualities. You just have to choose to make these characteristics a part of who you are. Choose to become the best you are capable of becoming.
