Commitment - Regardless of the level of a travel team, a certain level of commitment is required from the player (and therefore the player’s family):
- Basketball As A Priority - The SFS Travel Basketball program caters to ballplayers at a higher level of skill, and who place BASKETBALL FIRST, only after school and family emergencies.
- Attendance expectations – Every attempt should be made to be at every game. The expectation is that every ballplayer will be at every practice and game as they all build on each other. Notification must be made to the coach in the case of absence, and much like a classroom the ballplayer may need to “catch up on their homework”.
- Mindset and commitment expectations – When you’re at the gym, you are focused on basketball... not any other distractions. Mind on basketball.
