The mission of the STMA Girls Basketball Club (STMA GBC) is to provide the girls in our communities the opportunity to develop, learn, and enjoy the game of basketball at a competitive level. Our goal is at all levels, to provide an environment that encourages good sportsmanship, in a fun, healthy, and competitive playing environment, that allows players to grow not only as basketball players, but also as people. This will be accomplished through not only a focus on teaching skill development and the understanding of the game of basketball, but also through promoting hard work, dedication, and good sportsmanship.
The Philosophy of the STMA GBC embodies a basketball structure of teaching, developing, competing and striving to win for all student athletes. Success is more about just wins and losses, it’s about building life values and character. These qualities include honesty, loyalty, courage, respect, and unselfishness. STMA GBC actively promotes and supports girls’ basketball through four key principles; 1) Respect, 2) Work Hard, 3) Have Fun, and 4) No “I” in Team. These elements provide the foundation for our Mission and Philosophy, applicable at all competitive levels, without exception.
