Sixers Basketball allows surrounding area youth to travel, learn and mature as young adults. Basketball functions as a vehicle for change. It serves as the medium for mentoring participants through life lessons, driving home the importance of education and providing an opportunity to be exposed to experiences outside of East Texas.
Sixers basketball transcends all demographics via the camaraderie that our parents and participants develop over the summer months.
Basketball, in our sense, serves as a medium to carry educational messages. These messages surround the idea that hard work, dedication and perseverance provide the best opportunity to be successful. Sports are a reflection of society so we challenge our kids to think outside of the normality of their lives, and trust that our coaches have their best interest in mind.
Throughout the summer, our kids are told to “never look at the scoreboard.” For the majority of our kids, it is their first experience with organized activities during the summer months so the possibility of traveling out of town, staying in hotels and being away from their parents is exciting. All we require of our kids is that they work hard in practice, always compete and have fun playing a game they enjoy. If our kids leave everything on the court and execute the coaches’ plan to the best of their abilities, the number on the scoreboard can never dictate whether our players win or lose.
