Mission: To teach the next generation leadership and positive character through sports.
Why are you signing up your child to play basketball? Do you have hopes of raising an NBA star? (If you’re realistic, probably not.) Do you need one more thing for your family to do so you don’t get bored? (I highly doubt that!) Are you hoping for a college scholarship to make up for your lack of educational savings? (I might say yes to that one.)
If you’re like most parents, you want your child to experience new things, help them find their strengths and learn life skills through their involvement in athletics. There is a common assumption that sport teaches character. If that’s true, we should find the most virtuous in society among our professional athletes. There are many athletes who are amazing role models, but there are plenty whose lack of good character is equally astounding. The truth is that participation in sports will reveal character. In sports, coaches teach character (in partnership with parents) and participation in sports creates multiple opportunities for that character to be refined. Positive character will only take place through sports if it is an intentional aspect of the coaching plan.
That is why we have started SCORE 4 Sports. Our goal is help kids become leaders through positive character coaching.
We want to teach kids to lead by example: treating others with kindness, excelling in school, refraining from alcohol and drugs, treating others respect, refraining from dirty language, and displaying a positive attitude. Our coaches will use the acronym S.C.O.R.E. throughout the season to help educate boys and girls and give them the tools to accomplish the process of becoming leaders in their homes, schools and community.
