Program Philosophy

We believe that strength in numbers is essential to reaching our goals by creating a family setting for all our members, both parents and players.  By relying on each other to motivate and become the best individual we can be, mountains of obstacles become hills and hurdles become steps forward toward greatness.  At CYDC, we don't believe in "I", and we don't believe in "can't" for "I" paves a path towards selfishness and "can't" is the fear of failure in the pursuit of success.

By working with players to develop their strength and skills the theory is simple:  if each player on a team is strong, then together they will be able to over come each other's weaknesses.

We also believe it's important that all senior and/or graduating players from CYDC are a part of a mentoring program that allows players to come back and share their experiences learned through the sport of basketball as well as help younger players by coaching them the latest skills.

Program of Excellence:

  • Excellence in respect for one's self, coaches, teammates, officials, opposition and the game.
  • Excellence in displaying the highest standard of professionalism and ethical conduct on and off the court.
  • Excellence in applying the values of self-discipline and self-control to achieve personal and team goals.
  • Excellence in sportsmanship:  play fair with the ability to win or lose gracefully.
  • Excellence in being a team player:  must identify, reinforce and build on strengths and abilities to contribute to the team's performance and success.
  • Excellence in recognizing your personal uniqueness and value while at the same time seeing the same in others.
  • Excellence in understanding the crucial relationship between teammates and team performance.  Learn to focus and embrace the valuable differences in the personalities and capabilities of every team member.
  • Excellence in maintaining goals, staying focused, plus being persistent, consistent, self-motivated, positive and optimistic.
  • These components define CYDC.
