The objective of Golden Eagles Men's Basketball is to create an environment conducive to incorporating many of the characteristics needed to be successful in life. The characteristics and personality traits that help make a successful basketball team are paramount in helping an individual be a productive and successful member of society. As the late John Wooden said, “Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.”
The basketball players at Bourgade Catholic will learn how implementing qualities in their life, such as honesty, accountability, dependability, trust, dedication, loyalty, respect, citizenship, enthusiasm leadership, and confidence will not only help them on the court but will extend to much greater successes in life. BCHS basketball practices hard in hopes of playing the game with equal determination and efficiency. The hope is that all involved with this program, including athletes, parents, coaches, officials, students and spectators will reflect on their experience as positive, beneficial and fun.
