At 360ydc (youth developing capacity), we believe young people possess tremendous potential to grow up as exemplary human beings who can influence the lives of their families, teams and communities. Our league and camp coaches strive to cultivate a caring yet challenging environment in which young people from any background may unleash their vast potential and succeed within and beyond the “game”. We encourage young people to recognize, appreciate and live by the universal and timeless values such as purpose, honesty, initiative, grit, challenge, agency, humility, courage, compassion, critical thought, health, love and team/family/community. We take a transformative approach to learning and basketball excellence in which our professionally experienced coaches use the following 5 pillars of learning:
Learning to Know;
Learning to Do;
Learning to Live & Play With Others;
Learning to Be;
Learning to Impact Team, Family, Society & Environment.
We believe every young person in the community should have a safe place to play sports and learn life-skills, regardless of their financial status. This means through our scholarship program we support any family who may not have the sufficient funds to participate in our programs.
Our Playing Beyond The Game Creed
The duration of a well played game is only a few minutes, while the journey for it may take many years of hard work and excellent character. Remember the real value of sport is not in winning or performing in the limelight of applause but by the virtues learned, practiced and lived within and beyond the athletic realm. The applause soon fades away, the statistics forgotten, the trophy is left behind, but the character, friendships and legacy you build are yours forever.
