WE ARE FEARLESS! WE ARE FIERCE!
WHO WE ARE
We are a players-first youth basketball program established January 2021 that aims to raise the bar in athletic training, IQ development and mentorship coaching. Our mission is to advance student athletes in a safe and positive learning environment to achieve their long-term improvement goals. We envision a future as leaders in youth basketball creating opportunities for all aspiring athletes to thrive on the court, in the classroom and in life.
WHAT WE OFFER
We exist to provide an elevated sports experience that helps young athletes shape their love and respect for the game. With a progressive-style coaching and our Fierce curriculum, we focus on teaching the game in a way that heightens a player’s individual strength as a Fierce athlete and the team’s overall success as Fearless competitors. Their experience here will not only improve their athletic performance but also, help build mindfulness and character. Being able to cultivate a complete player, starts with the ability to cultivate untapped potential. When realized, they will identify and draw the connection between basketball and the endless opportunities on and off the floor.
Our core programs include our Travel Ball Teams, Development Camps & Clinics and our Fierce Elite AAU Team.
“As a growing basketball community, our guiding principles are at the core of our culture. It is important that we all share the same values because it’s what we believe in above all else.”

WHAT WE VALUE
AS A COMMUNITY
Under-promise and over-deliver. When it comes to the game of basketball, we are not in business to sell you a dream or make unrealistic promises. We are in business to show you results you can be proud of.
We believe in keeping things simple and practical to achieve optimal results. Over-complexity in any business can come off as unnecessary fluff. We focus on fundamentals in basketball and in business. We work with what works best for everyone!
Enjoy the experience. No one is a stranger at SCF. We love what we do and want everyone to love their experience with us on and off the court.
We don’t believe in shortcuts to develop basketball players or our business. Hard work, forward-thinking and integrity are essential in building our brand.
Openness, honesty and accountability are at the core of our culture. Being transparent helps us build trust and loyalty within our basketball community and beyond.
“We believe everyone deserves an opportunity to experience the benefits of mentoring through sports. Our partner program is helping to give young people the best chances to succeed on and off the court”
