Our mission is to help young athletes to play basketball at a competitive level. This is accomplished by providing a foundation in the many individual skills required to be a strong basketball player. Equally important, our coaches teach their players to use these skills effectively as a team. Of utmost importance in achieving our mission for our youth members is that we focus on the development of our youth members as individuals and as a team. Our program aims to teach young men the importance of teamwork by learning to meet, develop relationships, and work with new people in their lives to achieve excellence on the court – something that will be important throughout life. Parents have a significant role to play in the Sac Lightning organization. We encourage open communication between parents and coaches, to help ensure that concerns about their child are appropriately addressed.
