Swain AAU Basketball mission is to create a memorable part of the student athlete’s life journey by providing a healthy and safe environment where confidence and consistency in their athletic abilities will inspire them to go to the next level. We will create an atmosphere where they can improve their basketball skills, while enjoying the camaraderie of their fellow teammates and coaches and the excitement of playing the competitive game of basketball, thus allowing them to learn new skills and develop skills that have already been acquired. The goal of all of Swain AAU Coaches goes beyond teaching basketball skills, but includes teaching important life skills such as responsibility, self-respect, and teamwork. As an organization, we do not emphasize basketball as the number one priority over other areas of our young athletes’ lives. Our commitment is to broaden the personal growth of our players in hopes of them being able to maximize their full potential in all aspects of life.
