The Right Way

Although winning is integral to the Magic tradition, we wholeheartedly believe in teaching basketball the right way. We prepare players to maximize their individual potential as well as focusing on key aspects such as teamwork and always working hard in practices and games. The lessons we teach go beyond basketball. We focus on developing young men and women on and off the court.

Our communication is second to none. Parents are kept informed throughout the entire season beginning with parent meetings held during tryouts. Our website is always up to date with each season's information including weekly game schedules. Weekly updates are sent to parents throughout the season. There are also seasonal meetings to discuss and assist student-athletes in the college recruitment process.

Skills Development

The first hour of our weekly practices is focused solely on individual skill development to ensure every player continues to improve on a personal level. Coaches follow a progressive skill-based developmental program that focuses on ball handling, defense, footwork, passing, rebounding and shooting.
