WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN PHH WARRIORS 2021-22 SEASON:

PLAY HARD HOOPS WARRIORS GUIDE FOR SUCCESS

PHILOSOPHY: We will teach the fundamentals of the game and learn team concepts we believe help teams succeed. Offensive and defensive philosophy are concepts to prepare for high school basketball. Our teams will be taught  motion offense concepts / sharing the ball.  We will teach team defensive concepts learned while coaching college basketball: man-to-man concepts must be taught and played unselfishly.  We will focus on playing hard, competing regardless of the situation we are faced, as a team can overcome talent deficiencies by competing harder than its opponent.

Player Objectives: Provide PHH players with opportunity for improvement, keep skills sharp, improve basketball IQ and provide competition appropriate games. Teams will use practice time to prepare for game play and also to build on fundamental skills. PHH Coaches will build a team first atmosphere where players can improve and have fun with teammates.

TEAM GOALS:

Play Team Basketball

Play W/Passion

Play For Each Other

INDIVIDUAL GOALS:

Skill Development – Execute Fundamentals

Improved Knowledge of the Game

Be Part of a Team – Love Your Teammates

Motivated For Future Improvement

PLAYER EXPECTATIONS:

Practice Hard

Be a Good Teammate

Be Coachable

Dear Play Hard Hoops Families:

Thank you for your interest in the Play Hard Warriors Travel Feeder Program. The Warriors finished their 4th season and PHH also ran travel feeder programs for Lake Zurich and Vernon Hills. With the addition of PHH City Warriors, Play Hard had 27 total travel feeder teams winter 2020-21. Many PHH Travel Teams had great seasons in 2020-21 with most finishing with a winning record. While winning is not the priority for the PHH Travel Feeder Program, PHH teams won 7 combined tournaments in 2019-20. Our goals for the program are to provide coaching that will give your son a greater opportunity to develop their skill level and knowledge of the game as they progress in the game of basketball. We will provide stronger competition through the Travel Feeder League and tournament play over the course of the program. We also hope that the PHH players in the program develop friendships and enjoy being part of a team. At the end of the season, I sincerely hope that the boys will be motivated to work hard at the game of basketball. There are no secrets in being successful as a player; hard work, patience, discipline and a desire to compete regardless of the consequences.

Thank you again for your consideration of Play Hard Hoops for your basketball development. I can be reached at the phone #/email below.

Expectations for the parents before you select the PHH Travel Feeder Program:

1)      Playing time will not be equal but earned. However, all players will play in every game they attend, and all players will receive substantial playing time.  We want players to understand the importance of attending practice, listening, working hard and playing team basketball.  Playing time issues are never to be discussed in front of the kids or on game day.  If you have any issues regarding playing time, please contact me on Monday or Tuesday when we can appropriately discuss.

2)      While we hope to win games and will try our best to put them in position to win games, the importance of winning and the outcomes does not measure to the process by which we are trying to win.  Teaching the process of doing the right things will come before winning.  I am certainly hopeful that if the players improve throughout the season and build good basketball habits, we will have the opportunity to win games.

3)      Parent Behavior is important to Play Hard Hoops and it is important to your son: Please refrain from attacks on officials.  Please refrain from talking about other players on our team and our opponents’ team.  Please refrain from being overly critical of the coach.  Please maintain your perspective that this is youth basketball.

4)      There are going to be failures/successes/terrible officiating/bad parents, bad coaches, and some perplexing moments.  All experiences are not good experiences, but they are all learning experiences that we hope will help each kid become a better player, person, teammate.
