Growing up I played competitive basketball,. As an adult I noticed that the kids I played with on a competitive level all grew up to be successful as adults. Many of my basketball friends as a child are now business owners, doctors, lawyers, successful in their personal life. I do not believe this is a coincidence.
Maple basketball believes that success in basketball is success in life. As a youth many lessons are learned on the basketball court. Players have to work hard for practices, they must overcome countless obstacles to succeed in basketball. Some of these obstacles are learning to deal with pressure. Young players playing basketball also face difficult situations such as failure. As a youth player, players learn to deal with these emotions and difficult situations. Later on in life in situations that arise in university, work, personal life- they're able to take the lessons learned as a young athlete and apply it to their adult life. This is the reason Maple basketball takes its program so seriously.
Maple basketball feels that they're not just teaching basketball, but they are teaching young people how to become successful adults. We work very hard to create a comprehensive curriculum so players develop fundamentals and play the game properly. If we did not prepare our athletes to play in games, then we're also teaching them not to be prepared for life. We teach our athletes at Maple basketball to put 100% effort into everything they do - on the basketball court and in life.
