ProSkills Mission Statement

I never lose. I either win or learn. - Nelson Mandela

The ProSkills' organization strives to help young athletes find their love for the game of basketball and focusing on long term player development. We feel strongly that life lessons and values such as hard work, discipline, character, and teamwork, can be learned through sports. Our goal is to teach young athletes respect for themselves, their peers and their community by instilling a code of ethics built on responsibility, coachability and team work so every child can reach their full potential and increase their skills in the game of basketball and more importantly….life.
