“CHANGING THE GAME”

“Suns basketball Club is pleased to introduce the “Changing the Game” philosophy and culture to our club teams for the 2017 season. Changing the game will make the competitive sports experience much more rewarding for everyone involved- players, parents, and coaches. This program is based on the reality that seventy percent of high performing athletes are quitting their sports by the age of 13 or 14. In late February, the club will holding a special parents and players’ information evening to present this program to prospective club families.
