Coach Wooden's 7 Point Creed


“Champions don’t become champions when they win an event, but in the hours, week’s, months, and years they spend preparing for it.”
 -  -  Michael Jordan

"Prepare for the moment"

“The reason why we have won so many championships is that you have to have kids that deserve it. You say well, every kid deserves they don't! Not every kid deserves it! Not every kid is willing to work prepare for that moment. They just want to be in that moment and they hope they're good enough to be in that moment.”
 - - - Geno Auriemma
