The Ga Basketball Club & the Team Attack USA Travel Team(s)
Foundational Statement of Belief
The Georgia Basketall Club & the Team Attack USA Travel Team(s) is a Faith Based Basketball Development, Player Training, Regional & National Competitive Basketball organization established in 2006 by Founder & Coach, Rodney. Having two children in college (Fall 2010), one of which will be playing Collegiately, Rodney has returned to the community the knowledge, understanding, approach and methods used to prepare his children for their collegiate experience. Based in Gwinnett County Georgia, Team Attack now serves many families & communities throughout the Atlanta, North Georgia, Southeast & Midwest U.S Regions. Our initial teams were one(1) boy’s and one(1) girl’s team in the fall of 2006, and since has established several teams in many age groups on both the boys and girls sides of the ledger. Our focus is not QUANTITY, but quality. We do not build teams with players to sit on the bench. We want them in the game! We want them growing, understanding & learning sport & the game of basketball and to that end, we provide many different programs to achieve those goals. It's not about the name on the front of the jersey, but about the player in the jersey that is of more importance to us. We are not perfect in any regard, but we know how to produce players who compete at high levels by exposing them to skill set and position training; speed agility and quickness training; competition at all levels, teaching principles and concepts consistent with today's game & providing them the arena to exhibit and compete with the best in the area, best in the state and the best nationally. We are an AAU, NAYBA, USBA, USSSA & YBOA affiliated Organization. OUR PERSPECTIVE is that not every athlete is a "Blue Chip" athlete, but every athlete can be and should be fundamentally sound, playing to the maximum to their potential and giving maximum effort every time they step on a court. Each practice, each training session and each event is an opportunity to learn, increase, grow and achieve & this is what we instill in our athletes! OUR APPROACH is that we take any athlete at any level at any age and begin by assessing their skill set, knowledge and understanding of the game and together as a three part team (Athlete, Parent & Coach), map out a "seasonal goal" for that athlete which includes skill set and position training, speed, agility and quickness training & fundamental review and training. In a twelve month calendar year, there are three season for the basketball player. Your school ball season, your competitive season (typically known as AAU season) and the Fall Season prior to school ball beginning. If a player adds one element to his/her game each season, season after season, by the time they seniors in High School, they have more tools (talents/abilities) available to them in their game and thus are continually becoming a more complete player. It may seem simple, but it works! OUR GOAL is to equip the athlete with the necessary tools/talents & abilities to compete at their next level while giving him/her a solid foundation from which to work and build. Today's microwave -want it right now-generation is somewhat void of the basic understanding that "You do not get out of life what you want, you get what you work for". Consistent Hard Work Produces Results!
OUR MOTTO: If you have made it to the top, then you know what it took to get you there and you have to continue to do that & more to say there!
OUR VISION: Provide athletes the opportunity to learn the fundamentals, position skill set and overall understanding of the game, while preparing them for their next level of competition!
We Believe in You, you have to believe in yourself!
We Believe you can have what you want, if you work for it!
We Believe you can obtain any goal, achieve any level, if you're willing to pay the price! Have you counted the cost!
We Believe you should "NEVER" stop growing, "NEVER" stop learning, because once you do, then you start losing!
We Believe talent alone will not get you there, but talent has to be crafted,& shaped and moulded!
We Believe that Character, Attitude (the good kind) & Integrity are key components of Leaders, Achievers & Winners!
We Believe that Respect (Given) is Repsect (Garnered)! Respect the game. Respect your Coach's. Respect your opponent. Respect your teamates. Respect yourself!
We Believe that there is more to the game than just offense. If you can't stop me and I can't stop you, the game comes down to whoever has the ball last, just before the clock reaches 0:00!
