DAA Travel Basketball 'Where players are made". During the DAA travel season developing our players basketball IQ and fundamental skill package is our priority. This process is very important to us. We will work hard to develop our home grown players so that in 8th grade, when our players are ready to transition into the high school game, they are prepared to compete. The areas that we will focus are: fundamental skills, basketball knowledge, work ethic, passion, competitiveness and leadership qualities. We talk about BEGINNING TO END! Our promise to our players and parents is that each player WILL DEVELOP from the beginning of the season to the end of the season, and that my friends is described as PLAYER DEVELOPMENT!!! In order for these goals to be met, we want players in the DAA program that enjoy working hard. We want players that are excited to come to practice and be the hardest worker on the floor EVERY DAY! Game day should be easy as it will be the reward for all the hard work that we put into practice. Our teams must develop a "TEAM" attitude, where "I" passes into "WE". Our practices are the foundation of the program. During practices, our players will be put through drill work that will improve individual player skills. Also during our practices coaches will break down team concepts that will allow each player to learn the game and compete at the highest level possible. WE WILL NEVER JUST ROLL THE BALL OUT AND NOT TEACH!
