Alodia Sports Offers Top Quality Basketball Instruction, Training, Camps, Club Teams, Leagues, Tournaments and Coaching to Houston and Girls’ Club Teams to Kansas City. But don’t let that fool you…we’re about MUCH more than basketball!. We have found over the years that there is a close correlation between the person who attempts to develop as a total person (character, attitude, academics, spirituality, and basketball skills) and his contribution to the basketball program. Those who have not managed to develop this form of self discipline have either contributed very little or have not been able to perform in a clutch situation.
At Alodia Sports Academy, we will place a special emphasis on “mental attitude”. Again, history has proven that those who WANT and BELIEVE they can achieve a certain goal will do just that.
One important lesson we will learn is that we will get back from life exactly what we put into it. Success in basketball, like success in any sport or profession, is a frame of mind. This is certainly true of your dedication to basketball. Most successful basketball players are made, not born. Motivation is internal – the response to a challenge, the pride one takes in accomplishment. Attitude is personal, and effective motivation can only be accomplished on a personal basis.
The secret of all successful people is the results of a predetermined goal. Your goal must be a single ambition; there should not be other desires complicating the situation at the same time. Establish your priorities. There is magic in thinking big – it is important to set your goals high.
Success comes to that person who: 1) know where he/she is going, 2)Determines what he/she should do to move in this direction, 3) works industriously toward the master of all details, and 4) believes with all his/her heart that “he/she can have anything he/she wants if he/she wants it bad enough”.
Your future will be determined by you. You can read all the books you like, do all the wishful thinking you like, but success will not ever come until you decide to be up and doing. Herein lies the secret of success, “the greatest mystery in life is in the success that comes from work”.
Most teams have good talent, but some seem to always rise to the occasion and play somewhat better than they might be capable of. What makes these teams play this way? What makes any individual play this way? I think that what we are talking about is dedication, loyalty, mental attitude, working together………….
SUCCESS IS A JOURNEY NOT A DESTINATION
ALODIA SPORTS…. ACHIEVE GREAT PERFORMANCE!!!!
An Alodia Sports Academy Student
An Alodia Sports Academy student can come in any size, shape, or color. There is no common denominator except the love for the game and a desire to get the most out of his or her abilities. An Alodia Sports student is not only proud of his/her strengths, but understands his or her weaknesses. He/she is first of all concerned with the good of his/ her team and knows that individual recognition will come through team excellence.
An Alodia Sports Academy student has the enthusiasm of an evangelist; the discipline of a monk; the heart of a warrior; and never loses the honesty and character of a small child.
The student appreciates the support of thousands of fans, but he/she is much more aware of the example he/she is setting for the small child watching from the sideline. The student is happy when he or she scores, but never forgets that a teammate threw them the ball. While the student never lets up on either end of the floor, the other team is not his/her real opponent; it is the full extent of his/her own potential that the student is always playing against.
An Alodia Sports Academy student is made not born. He or she is constantly striving to reach his or her potential knowing that they will bypass other players who cannot withstand the strain of their quest for excellence. He/she realizes that the challenges and competition of today’s game will better prepare them for tomorrow’s world. An Alodia Sports Academy student knows that the true measure of his/her performance is not recorded in wins and losses, but in how much of himself he has given to the game.
An Alodia Sports Academy player never realizes when the odds are stacked against them. They can only be defeated by a clock that happens to run out of time. They are what a small child wants to become and what an old man or women can remember with great pride that they once were.
