“Each player who joins the Bulldogs Program is first and foremost a Student”
The club have always been, and always will be, focused on helping young people achieve their potential. The club works in partnership with players, parents and often schools in helping them achieve their potential, not just as athletes but as students and as future leaders within their community. The club is built on a solid foundation of trust, respect and discipline, therefore players know that if they display any bad attitude in training, in matches or even at home then they are not allowed to represent the club. Players also know that if they do not focus fully on their academic progress then they will also be benched.
The Bulldogs priority regarding basketball, is to focus on each of its students mastering the Fundamental Skills of Basketball. The earlier we start this process the better students they become, specially as they progress through their teenage years.
To achieve this we combine a repetition , repetition, repetition formula into our intense skills training and court workouts.
By mastering these skills at a early stage, it enables students to fulfil their potential much earlier, it also helps them to become more confident and self disciplined.
This format also encourage them to focus on developing essential life and social skills, that not only it will help them to achieve their educational and professional goals, but more importantly will prepare them for life after basketball.
At the Bulldogs we have a first class skills development program that has been designed by one of the most experienced NCAA coaches in America, this not only helps our students to master these basic skills but more importantly helps them to understand and improve the technical and physical side of the game.
The club firmly supports a commitment to education and uses basketball to encourage our students to follow a learning pathway.
