Royals / John Wooden's Pyramid of Success Discussion

Looking forward to our Reach Higher Kings & Royals Golf Fundraiser on Monday, April 16th @ Laurel Springs Country Club - GOING TO BE OUR BIGGEST EVER!

Your Participation is making a difference!

Join Us as we Reach Higher in 2018!

To build our own facility that will operate as a safe haven for teams to meet and practice, as well as attract others in the community with our
diverse program offerings.

Training with integrity results in winning success!

The success of a Basketball Team requires all five players to contribute on the court, by being fundamentally and mentally strong, and clearly knowing their purpose and goals in a game. These characteristics and skills are also fundamentally necessary for a productive and satisfying life.  We implement a holistic approach by focusing on the five areas listed below, to ultimately promote the achievement of competitive greatness on the court and in each player’s life.
#1 – Integrity Coaching
#2 – Authentic Life Foundational Teaching
#3 – Conditioning
#4 – Competitive Tournament Teams, Skill Camps and Leagues
#5 – Be a Light in the Community by Serving Others

Our Mission

Reach Higher is a competitive Christian basketball program instilling positive physical, mental, and moral efficacy for our coaches, our youth players, and the families we touch.  In the midst of difficult choices and high pressure environments, Reach Higher is a guiding voice for teens, helping them to run confidently — in basketball and into a future full of hope.
