MISSION STATEMENT: The Hampton Roads Rams mission is to create a place where players have a positive atmosphere and where young athletes can come to be better basketball players. The Hampton Roads Rams is the vehicle that provides the opportunity for players to take their skills to the next level. We exist to make a positive difference in the lives of our players. Our goal is to develop healthy and confident players. We stive to provide a safe, fun and successful experience for each of our players.
COACHING/LEARNING PHILOSOPHY: The Hampton Roads Rams employ many coaching and counseling techniques that are designed to effectively accomplish our goals. In general, these techniques fall into the following methods:
- Instruction - Learning to play basketball or any sport, requires the guidance of an experienced coach who can communicate with the players
- Repetition - While practice never leads to perfection, it does lead to improvement. Practice when you can and where you can. At home, at the playground, outside, ANYWHERE!
- Example - Watching other players and learning from examples of our coaches helps players understand what the end result of their hard work should look like.
Our Goal: The Hampton Roads Rams organization has two main goals. The first is to provide quality instruction in all aspects of the game. This instruction will include skill building but also the development of self-discipline, dedication and confidence in each athlete; qualities that will assist them as they progress through life. The second goal is to prepare those players that have the desire, athletic ability and academic standing to play at the high school and collegiate level. We believe that a competitive athletic experience can enhance social development, contribute to mental and physical health and teach the values of team work and responsibility. We are proud of the opportunity that we offer, and we feel all the players involved will receive a positive experience.
