Our Mission

Lightning Basketball founded in 1992 with three basic principles; We aim to give young athletes an opportunity to work with top coaching staff, compete in high level tournaments and improve themselves on and off the court. Each of our athletes are given the tools and training needed to play both high school and college basketball. The Lightning Basketball mantra stresses personal accountability, time management, communication, leadership and dedication. These pillars help us develop our athletes into great competitors and better individuals.

Lightning Principles

  • Players must exhibit a high level of commitment to Lightning Basketball. Attendance at practices and tournaments is an absolute necessity unless excused by coaching staff.
  • It is our promise that the coach will make every effort to improve the skills of each player on the team. Our expectation is that each coach act as a teacher who is responsible for the safety and well-being of each player on his or her team. Coaches will be a role model both on and off the court.
  • The coach will make every effort to provide as much playing time as possible to every member of the team while realizing that the development of players is more important that winning games.
  • The players will at all times behave in a proper and sportsmanlike manner. Players can be dismissed from the team without warning if they present a serious behavioral problem. Lightning Basketball enjoys an excellent reputation, no player or parent will be permitted to jeopardize or detract from that positive reputation.
  • Parents must always act in a responsible, respectable and sportsmanlike manner. A Lightning parent is never permitted to speak in a negative way to an opposing team, our own team, coaches or officials. If at any time, a Lightning parent acts in an improper or disrespectful way, the parent and child may be asked to leave the organization.
  • The Lightning Basketball administration promises to provide a safe, sportsmanlike and fair setting where every player is provided with the opportunity to be successful.
  • Lightning Basketball is a proud member of the AAU and abides by its rules and regulations.
