Players and Athletes
It is Skyline’s philosophy that our younger players discover the importance of enjoying an activity. We work to bind both enjoyment and personal accomplishment in sports. At Skyline, we are diligent in teaching and demonstrating the basic fundamentals that are building blocks to more advanced skills as our athletes grow older. Skyline has a proven progression timeline to help achieve individual and team goals year after year. We believe that at a young age, children should not be locked into a position or a role due to the current state in their physical growth. Most organizations may see a tall child and immediately slot them in what normally is a position for tall players. However, at Skyline, we ensure that our young athletes perform all skills, having the opportunity to try all positions. This mode of self-discovery can open up great opportunities, including enjoyment (and excitement) for up-and-coming athletes.
For our older high school-level athletes, our paradigm is the “total student-athlete.” Not only do we coach more advanced athletes to become great players, but we coach them to become great students as well. At Skyline we believe in developing a “total” well-rounded individual. It is in this type of persona that Skyline believes teams become inherently successful. Like attracts like, therefore success attracts success. Our extensive years of coaching have taught us that there is a percentage of players that ‘like’ their sport and those that are ‘captivated’ and ‘absorbed’ by it. We prefer the latter individual. We know that throughout any situation, this individual will make the necessary and imperative adjustments to master their skill. We simply encourage the constant improvements through realistic, attainable and repeatable goals.
