Comment from the Coaches
We believe that sports form a foundation of teamwork and confidence building for children that will be needed as they grow older and as they begin to be self-sufficient. Winning is great, but as we do in life, we do not win all of the time and the way one handles losing, as well as winning, will tell a lot about one’s character.
These teams within our CPA Organization are for the children. It is not for adults who wish to live out their childhood fantasies through their children. Whether boy or girl, all must be allowed to play and play with a sufficient amount of time that will build confidence. All of the children do not have the same skills but as they practice, they will become better players, consequently a better team.
We implore you, the parents, to allow our coaches to coach. We will only have them for a few hours a week. We realize that you are the real coach, mentoring your child on how to be successful in real life. Case and point – If someone were to tell you how to do your job at parenting, we are sure you would not appreciate that, so let our coaches do their job.
Again, we ask for your cooperation in helping us to help your child on the basketball court. There is no salary or fanfare for anyone within the Organization, just the enjoyment of helping others.
We thank you in advance for your support.
