Basketball workshop: Driving hard towards YOUR goals
22 June 2015

Tonight's more intimate advanced workshop was a great vibe with the smaller group of younger athletes from Basketball WA. For most of them, they're at a crucial time in their life and career where they have to choose whether they wish to commit themselves or not.
 
 
It was important to firstly acknowledge that every athlete is different. Some of these kids wish to play College Basketball in America, some wish to continue through the Australian pathways and some might focus more on their studies than following through with an elite outlook on Basketball. And you know what? That's ok! 
 
 
Everyone is different and will seek a variety of outcomes from their sport. It's important to understand that not everyone wants the same thing.
 
 
But what is important is for you to understand what you want, and exactly what it's going to take to get there. 
 
 
It's one thing to say you want something, but it's another to be willing to do the things it takes to get there. 
 
 
I really enjoyed going through the advanced workshop with this group tonight because you could see them really narrowing down on their target goals with basketball and life. It's also important for them to realize their they are talented and have what it takes, it's just a matter of them holding themselves honestly responsible and putting in the work!
