Vision: To build unity and joy through true Christian example on and off the court.
Our vision is to provide a positive environment to prepare our young athletes to glorify Christ, while developing the essential skills on the court and in leadership, through fair competition and service to our community.
Values: Servant Examples through Hard Work, Dedication, Sportsmanship & Competitiveness
It is an honor and privilege for us to be a witness to the Ezekiel Academy girls’ basketball team. Coaching and playing basketball provides us with a very unique opportunity to carry out what God has willed for us. We do not take this calling lightly and will accept nothing less from the athletes that play for us. We anticipate a great year of hard work, dedication, sportsmanship, and competitiveness. Keeping in mind that we will strive to put God first in our lives and be examples of Christ at all times, we will compete to win and will expect the girls to give their best efforts each time they take the court – whether at practice or in a game. As coaches, our expectations are built on three key attributes, and we will emphasize these throughout the season: Attitude first, Hustle second, and Talent third! Because character-building is foremost on our team, we frequently remind each other that we are to “win like champions and lose like champions.” Lastly, it is our goal to learn how to work and compete as a close-knit team and to help the girls build lasting friendships beyond the court that will last a lifetime.
The coaches have been working hard behind the scenes to get ready for our next season of basketball. We are getting prepared to start our summer workouts June 7th. The forms that are attached will need to be completed to gain access to the gym. Remember it is $20 a month and an additional $10 per month for another sibling or family member. Coach Bobo and Reid are at Fitness South setting up the program and workstations. I need to know how many people we will have so please email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know you can or cannot make these times. Please reply no later than this Saturday (June 5).
Monday & Thursday each week 9:00 – 11:00 AM @ Fitness South in Prattville
We will add more days as we progress and will also get into a gym to work on skill sets. I will send out a workout sheet so you can keep up with what you are doing. If you cannot make the team session you are still responsible for working out. This season is going to be an exciting one and we have lots of activities that we are hoping to schedule off the court as well to create team chemistry and team building.
Still looking for players so I encourage each of you to invite someone to play. See everyone soon.
