Our coaches strive to improve every facet of every basketball player’s game, and then to put each basketball player in a position where he or she can best display his or her strengths to college basketball coaches.  In a time when many clubs have no criteria or selection process for choosing coaches, the Tarheels maintain the highest stardards of integrity for our staff members. These standards are evident in all of our basketball coaches’ appearance and demeanor, and in the ways they interact with our athletes, parents, and other coaches.  Significantly, all our our basketball coaches are volunteers who are offering their time not for personal or financial gain, but for the benefit of student-athletes who have the desire to become great collegiate basketball players.
