Junior Magic Basketball
League Mission Statement:
HP Basketball is a league dedicated to “Creating Competitive Christian Athletes”. We have partnered with the Orlando Magic and each basketball player will receive a reversible Magic jersey and a ticket to attend a Magic game for free. Our goal of Creating Competitive Christian Athletes will be accomplished by building each player’s self-esteem, teaching each player the physical and mental fundamentals of each sport, giving each player equal playing time, teaching good sportsmanship and the value of playing as a team.
During this time players should increase their knowledge of the game, develop new friendships with players and coaches, and feel they are an important member of the team.
HP Sports is focused on fun and the physical and mental fundamentals of the game, rather than simply winning and losing.
Our goal is to provide your child with a positive sporting experience that will develop their love for God and athletics.
