Together, our players, coaches, and families will work with unyielding spirit to cultivate a safe and disciplined environment so every student-athlete can reach their full potential, develop their talents, and increase their skills in the game of basketball and more importantly life.

The mission of the BB&N Girls Basketball Program is to create value for each individual player within a team concept while developing their knowledge of game strategies, fundamental skills, and competitive attitudes for success. We will strive to model excellence, energy, and the execution of fundamentally sound basketball with passion and enthusiasm.

Basketball is a small part of life but is also a way to learn about life. In basketball the players and coaches have a duty to the team, BB&N, and to one’s self. Players and coaches must perform their duty in all aspects of the game. A coach must first be responsible to the team and then the player. Because of our commitment to our program, we must remember that after each game and each season, only the team remains. Therefore, our only goal isn’t to win games but also to become people and a team of great character. The BB&N philosophy contains high expectations and standards for our team. These expectations will be a guide for our players’ and coaches’ conduct on and off the court. If we are to attain our goals of building a strong tradition of BB&N girls’ basketball, then all players and coaches must buy into this philosophy.

All players must understand their role as a member of our team. It is because of this, our veteran players have a critical role on the team. Their experience and knowledge must set a positive example for the younger players in games and practice. Veteran players must realize their conduct and attitude set an example, so they must be exemplary in the classroom and in the BB&N community. Veteran players must instill confidence in younger players to help the team excel at all levels of play. By believing in respecting your teammates and coaches, realizing your collective responsibility, and having pride in your team and school, the foundation for a successful program can be built.
