About The Program
Philosophy: Success is a Choice
Basketball is a team sport that continuously tests an individual’s character throughout a season. We will achieve success by choosing to W.I.N. (Focus on What’s Important Now). We will focus on the fundamentals, choosing to develop a strong character foundation, and choosing to focus on the things we can control…all while becoming the best versions of ourselves. It’s important for our program to embrace the W.I.N. process and what it takes to be successful in school, in basketball, AND in life.
Traverse City St. Francis Girls Basketball has a rich history of success and has been building off that in the past two seasons under the current leadership, winning 79% of their games with a record of 37-10. Although, the success of our program will not solely be measured by its win-loss record. We certainly play to win games, but success will come if we all choose to work together in mastering a strong character foundation and a W.I.N. mentality. Alongside our willingness to make smart, impactful choices and focusing on the things we can control, we will utilize Christian values and John Wooden’s Pyramid of Success as our guides.
The season runs from early-November to late-March, with offseason opportunities from April to October, and team organized events & tournaments in June and July each year. Youth camps can be found at the website link below when they are available, and usually run annually in the Spring & Fall. Updates throughout the year can also be found on the team’s Facebook page, see below.
