Basketball on the Edge – 5 Core Values That Should Be Part Of Any Youth Basketball Experience



I came across these five core values on the website of the NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics).

INTEGRITY – Know and do what is right

RESPECT – Treating others the way you want to be treated

RESPONSIBILITY – Embrace opportunities to contribute

SPORTSMANSHIP – Bring your best to all competition

SERVANT LEADERSHIP – Serve the common good

If we could instill these five core values in all of our young players we could really make an impactful change in their lives both on and off the court. I’ll share my thoughts on each of the NAIA’s five core values over the coming weeks here at Basketball on the Edge. In the meantime, I’d love to hear from parents and coaches out there what you do to teach these core values to your kids and/or players. Looking forward to hearing from you.
