HONMA

MY WHY

I coach because I love the game and want to see the players learn to love the game and be passionate about the game and how they play. I would love to see players learn life skills through the game of basketball and when they leave our program they are good people as well as basketball players and the hope is that they will want to give back when they can.

“I would rather be the worst of the best than the best of the worst.”

MY WHY

They say "Be True to Yourself" ... well that's what coaching is to me... The truest I can be to myself is on the court coaching ball and inspiring athletes. It's who I am and what I was called to do.

MY WHY

Coaching brings me joy because I can share the love of basketball with others like someone once did for me. I believe its a responsibility to pay it forward to the next generation so one day they can do the same for another. Its a blessing to witness their skills devlop through hard work, yet experiencing their holistic transformation as players in becoming great individuals in all aspects of life through enjoying the game is the true value behind why we do what we do.

“Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.”-John Wooden
