Winter 2019-2020

Boys Basketball

At Cate School we aim to teach, develop, organize, manage and offer youth players the opportunity to learn the fundamental skills of basketball while instilling life-lessons and values such as character, teamwork, discipline, respect and sportsmanship. This is accomplished by striving to have open communication with Coach(es) and teammates and be able to resolve any situation (on the court or off) through positive conversation. All student-athletes will be treated with respect and dignity.

Basketball players at Cate School must recognize the competitive and public nature of their sport.  With this competition and visibility comes a responsibility to classmates, teammates, coaches, parents, local community, and all faculty and staff at Cate School.

As a team, we will encourage and build a positive environment in which the needs of the team exceed those of the individual striving to cultivate academic, emotional, physical, and social development.
