Values

Communication

Builds a strong team bond.

It’s time to come and enjoy at the RF. Jr. NBA Weekend festival being held at your city. The weekend festival is for kids falling in the age group of 6-10. The camp hosts various fun basketball activities like passing, dribbling, shooting, footwork & gameplay. Participating kids will be handed an individual score sheet. After every drill, their performance scores will be updated in their respective sheets by RF. Jr. NBA coaches.


DISCIPLINE

Helps you reach excellence.

Be a good sport and maintain discipline. Treat your teammates, coaches and players with respect and dignity. Coaches volunteer their time to work for the betterment of your team, so value their time and be attentive. Learn the rules. Set an example for others by playing fair. Never question officials. Even their intention is to have a fair game.


HARDWORK

The only way to victory.

Hardwork begins with practice and ends with perfection. Listen to your coaches; they are here to make your game better. You might be a pro in shooting, but you must also polish every move and technique needed to score baskets for your team.


SPORTSMANSHIP

True sportsman spirit earns admiration.

Everybody jumps on the court with the aim of winning. But one shouldn’t do away with the right ways of playing the game. Always play by the rules. Keep supporting your teammates and never put them down. Don’t let the bench time affect your game, just keep your calm. Avoid getting into an argument with the coaches, referees or opponents. Don’t sledge. Only one team wins, so no matter which side you are on, exchanging a handshake is a good gesture to value the spirit of the game.


TEAMWORK

Multiplies strength for a tough fight.

Be a good teammate! It adds to the strength of your team, making it win more games. Keep interacting with your teammates; cheer them up throughout the game. It will charge them up to play better. High fives and handshakes after a good play also make your teammates feel good. Listen to your coaches. Even the best players in the NBA need to do it. That’s how they get even better!
