Message From The President
At CAL Sports Academy we are committed to providing the highest level of professionalism in developing youth and high level atheletes (in Basketball, Soccer and Track & Field) and want to take a moment to share with you the motivation behind starting CAL Sports Academy.
CAL Sports Academy believes that boys and girls who enjoy the game and want to excel must dedicate themselves to learning and mastering the fundamentals. At all levels, from beginner to professional, the ability to consistently execute the fundamentals at game speed is what determines a player’s individual success, and ultimately, enhances their enjoyment of the game.
Over the past 10 years, and more recently, CAL Sports Academy is beginning to see more and more players who are missing many of the key fundamentals necessary to be highly successful. At the youth levels, so little time is spent on teaching basic fundamentals and the reality is that a couple hours of practice and 1-2 games a week for a few months out of the year is not necessarily the best formula for future basketball success.
One of CAL Sports Academy's primary goals is to raise the entire level of play for youth to high school players in the area by providing a fun, challenging, organized and yet creative, individual and team development program. There are many good club basketball programs that try to recruit the best talent and then head directly in to competition. We feel that CAL Sports Academy not only provides great competitive opportunities for all players, it also provides much needed year-round development for players of all levels, ultimately leading to long-term success that prepares them to play for any coach at any level.
The passion for teaching the game brings the most joy especially when a player discovers their ability. These are the little things that keep CAL Sports Academy energized and committed to our youth. CAL Sports Academy feels that a player’s interest in the game turns to dedication when they develop their skills and confidence.
The people the game brings in to our lives…all we have to do is look around and we see how many good relationships this game has enabled us to develop. These relationships mean so much to us and we hope those who join CAL Sports Academy have the opportunity to form lasting relationships through a shared passion.
Thank you for reading about CAL Sports Academy and the programs we have to offer. Please don’t hesitate to contact CAL Sports Academy directly with any questions you may have. CAL Sports Academy looks forward to seeing you at or on one of our Camps, Clinics, Leagues or Teams.
