Spartans is a nonprofit basketball club providing basketball program for everyone in the Tracy/Mountain House area. The program will form partnerships with local students from all local school districts.
Our goal is to foster a commitment through basketball to young people that will promote pro-social friendships, strong interpersonal skills, and reassert a sense of hope in the future through great sportsmanship. Only through personal relationships can a sense of individual responsibility be reestablished that will give youth the commitment to follow through on path to adulthood with a sense of pride and accomplishment.
Spartans is a program that is in direct response to the growing number of young people that are playing basketball in local clubs, school teams, or AAU Team. The goal of the program is to identify youths who have great potential and offer positive support system through AAU Teams to avoid the pitfalls that can derail their lives. The focus is slightly different at each level but the goal remains the same; empower the young person to make positive changes in his/her life via basketball.
Spartans Basketball Club, coaches and players are members of the AAU (Amateur Athletic Union). The AAU is one of the largest sports organizations in the United States. The difference between AAU basketball and other basketball leagues is based on the use of full high school rules. No developmental limitations are placed on the game such as participation and no-press/fast-break rules. This promotes competitive play and the broadest exposure to fundamentals and advanced techniques of the game.
