Teaching Life Skills on the Court
By playing basketball in Middle and Upper School at Thomas Jefferson, students develop fundamental skills in the sport as well as skills that transcend the basketball court, such as the value of hard work, teamwork, goal setting, and overcoming adversity.
Through winning and losing, students learn good sportsmanship and develop patience, self-discipline, and the ability to be humble when winning and calm when losing. Students also learn how a competitive edge can be advantageous in achieving goals in areas outside of athletics.
Students do not need to have playing experience to participate. Our inclusive program allows all students to test new capacities and discover new talents without being cut from the team.
Our basketball program is also highly competitive, offering your gifted and experienced basketball player the opportunity to build on skills and grow into an even more competitive player.
