Our Vision

The mission of Sports Vision is to help create elite basketball players that will possess the humility to sacrifice for the team and the desire to grow both in skill and in virtue.

We execute our mission through our vision which seeks to teach players to see their game on 2 main levels:

Sports Vision

We want to show players how to play and “see” the game.

Our goal is to equip players with the necessary skills and training they need to be able to:

  • Effectively identify weaknesses in the opponent and capitalize on mismatches
  • excel in seeing plays develop in the open floor & half court setting

Inner Vision

We also want to help our players see that basketball can help develop your character and prepare you for future trials and challenges by:

  • Focusing on the need for fundamentals over flare and sacrifice over selfishness
  • Emphasizing the virtue of humility which is essential to becoming a better player and, more importantly, to cultivating the character necessary for players to grow into virtuous young men and women
