COURAGE ~ HEART ~ ATTITUDE ~ MENTAL-TOUGHNESS ~ PRIDE ~ STRENGTH in GOD
Kenneth Reynolds Jr.
C.H.A.M.P.S. is a philosophy that we learned at a young age playing for our father. It represents different qualities that are important to playing the game of basketball. These are qualities that can be developed and enhanced through basketball but also have a direct relation to life. Sports teach valuable lessons and life skills. We believe in the C.H.A.M.P.S. qualities: Courage, Heart, Attitude, Mental-toughness, Pride, and Strength in God. Think of daily challenges you may face, then think about how utilizing these qualities can help you navigate through those situations. We try to instill these qualities through our workouts, making our players not only game ready but life ready!
Courage Heart Attitude Mental-toughness Pride & Strength in God is a non-profit organization. We are organized and operated exclusively for charitable purposes. Specifically, our organization is organized to provide a positive environment for children and adults, and engage in, conduct and promote charitable activities for children and adults.
