AAt Value of Sport we are extremely fortunate to have the following individuals share with our students their personal experience with the Value they derived from Sport and how it helped shaped their life and successful person they’ve become.
“The Value of Sport program brings positive opportunity to our youth. Since a young age sports has played a dynamic role in my development as a person. Basketball gave me an opportunity to express myself but more importantly it gave me something to be passionate about. I’ve had great mentors that pointed me in the right direction. Coaches that challenged my work ethic, communication, leadership, perseverance, and the many other qualities that make up my character. The greatest value in life is not what you get, it’s what you become. It’s your responsibility to bring out the best in you.”
“I’m so proud and honored to be a part of the Value of Sport program. Growing up playing basketball at the highest levels has made me to the person I am today. The life lessons that I’ve received from coaches, mentors, teammates and even competitors are absolutely invaluable. I even take those lessons and apply them to the business world today. Additionally, one of the most important gifts I’ve received through sport are all the wonderful friendships I’ve made along the way. I can proudly say that I can call these people my brothers (and sisters) for life!”
