Coaching Philosophy

Coach Sarden’s Basketball Philosophy:  “It’s all about the team”

My style has manifested & evolved from my own experience as a basketball player, observer, lessons learned from continuous development, best practices from clinics and programs, sessions with coaches and my own personality.

Coaches, players, trainers, and team managers must respect all aspects of the game of basketball, including each other at all times. While basketball is a game, through hard work and respect for others, basketball also instills a level of confidence for Student Athletes not only on the court but also in the classroom, community and in life.

Our commitment to players extends beyond the basketball court. We also assist Student Athletes in their academic development and explore college scholarship opportunities. Several methods utilized to maximize their goals include:  tutorials, teacher conferences, academic/ attendance/conduct reports, college and career readiness and overall Coach/Athlete guidance.

When challenges arise, our Coach/Parent/Student Contract outlines the rules and regulations of what it means to play on a Warrior Team and this enables everyone involved in the program to understand expectations and level of commitment required to participate and fully realize success as a Student Athlete.

Developing and growing a basketball program requires all individuals to be committed. This includes our dedicated parents who are instrumental in assisting on game days, fund raising, creating basketball spirit, supplying nutritious meals to our players and communicating with coaches.

We are fortunate to have a dedicated program in place and one that fully supports our Student Athletes so come out to a game and enjoy being part of the experience!
