ABOUT THE EAST COAST RAVENS
Although 2019 is the first year the East Coast Ravens club is officially taking the court, our coach has many years of experience playing and coaching basketball. This year, we will only have one team based out of the Metro-West area but are hoping to expand in the seasons to come.
The East Coast Ravens strives to incorporate important life lessons such as teamwork, discipline, good character, sportsmanship and respect while teaching and mastering the fundamentals of basketball. As a part of a team competing in tournaments, the players must develop confidence, learn to work together as a group rather than acting as individuals, and be committed to the game.
We are looking for players that strive for greatness - that are willing to work on themselves and be 100% committed to their team. This includes being present and working hard at practices, as well as giving their all at tournaments.
We believe that basketball is about much more than just winning or losing. Our goal is to coach our athletes to reach their full potential, set goals and work hard while having fun and making new friends.
