Our philosophy here at CSU is that all things start with family and all things end with
team. We believe that the more you act like brothers, the more you will play like
brothers, and that an individual’s ability to bond with a team will always make the
team better. We want to help players learn how to be a team player, and how to make
a difference on any team they might find themselves on. Once a player knows how to have
fun within a team atmosphere, the game will actually begin to teach them.
WHAT DOES FAMILY MEAN?
Family means you root for one another. Family means that you have no real choice
about who is in the family. When you join, you are part of a bigger dynamic.
When you are in, you are in. We discourage cliques. We even encourage learning
more about people you may not like.
Our mission is for every coach who gets a player back from our camp to say quietly or out
loud something like, “Gee, Bobby seems to have become a much better player lately.
I wonder why. It must have been something I taught him!”
We will have individual skill sessions designed into the camp time frame where individuals
will get personal instruction. Guest speakers will also be on hand periodically teaching
and demonstrating skills for dodging, checking, footwork, etc.
At CSU everything, including our strategy, begins with team concepts. We teach the
kind of team concepts that players can learn easily and take with them to any and whatever
style of team they might play on later.
