How We Develop Talent?

Excel Core Values

The Core Values Excel Sports Was Founded Upon:

How Will Excel Sports Shape Your Child Both in Basketball and in Life?

  • Teaching Sportsmanship

    We teach our kids courtesy and good manners. They will show respect by giving a firm handshake and making eye contact with officials and opposing coaches. This immediately transfers over the the academic and working worlds. We also teach them sportsmanship by making sure they respect the opposing players.

  • Encouraging Teamwork

    We teach our players that "we over me" is what most often leads to "us over them," not only in team sports competitions but in any challenges that life throws at them. There's no "I" in TEAM! We encourage our players to champion during both losing and winning efforts!

  • Maintaining Positive Attitude

    We teach our players how to persevere through setbacks and still do what they need to do to succeed. Playing sports is one the best ways to practice overcoming adversity, which prepares them how to handle life's hard knocks.

  • Showing Respect

    We pay it forward and get it back. How a coach interacts with other adults--coaches, parents and officials--will naturally influence the behavior of our players. We are conscientious of role-modeling, insisting that our players respect coaches, officials, and opponents.

  • Facilitating Communication

    We conduct team meetings to set the tone, and we also provide individual and post game analysis. We give constructive and positive feedback, while also establishing specific goals for our players to improve. The ability to assess, evaluate, and communicate is essential in all life’s aspects.

  • Continuing Education

    We have a successful training program, and our coaching requires continuing education. We assure that what we teach is appropriate for the skill, age, and the maturity level of the players. We also use a variety of resources for improving their skills. They browse websites, read books, watch videos, and attend coaching clinics whenever possible. We never stop striving to learn more to help our youth!

Congratulations to Excel Sports player Ari!AriFreshmanDV

Back in middle school, Ari tried out for the basketball team but didn’t make it. He was disappointed, so his mother signed him up for Excel Sports.

In her words, “Ari developed very rapidly. He went from having no basketball skills to being very good for his age and his grade level. I saw a huge change in Ari’s overall discipline, focus, and concentration because of Coach Mike.”
