THE SELECT VISION
To expand the horizon of young people through education, life skills and sports, while promoting self-sufficiency.
THE SELECT CONCEPT
The organization will offer the following programs in preparation for achieving our primary goal:
The fundamentals of basketball | Test preparation | Monitoring academic progress | Tutoring | Character/Image development | Life skills | Mental and Physical health | Public speaking | Competition and exposure through | Statewide and National Tournament play
We are a competitive youth basketball program providing opportunities for players (boys and girls) throughout the Greater Atlanta and surrounding areas. We emphasize Education and Life Skills as equal partners to Sports in the development of student athletes. We emphasize skill development in players. While winning is important, we do not feel it should come at the expense of skills development and fair play. We abide by a “Code of Conduct”.
We will make this program fun for players. We want to create an environment of fun through hard work and enthusiasm. While an effort will be made to play every participant, it will not be guaranteed. A player must earn the right by demonstrating proper character and skills in practice. Team goals will be emphasized over the individual.
We recognize that not everyone will be able to afford the fees to be part of “The ATL Selects”. The organization will assist players who need to raise funds for participation. We will work to develop relationships with local schools and recreation centers coaching staffs to leverage and share expertise and to promote the student athlete. In addition to AAU tournaments, we will participate in YBOA and other Youth programs that participate in state and national tournaments. Our goal is to provide MAXIMUM EXPOSURE!
