OC SELECT PROGRAM, GOALS AND MISSION
With any successful company or sports team, you quickly discover a specific culture that pervades. A culture is defined as the set of shared attitudes, values, goals and practices that characterizes an organization. As a program, we want everyone on our team to know what our culture is. Our culture makes us who we are. It is our foundation and we refer to it as “Play The Right Way”.
“Play The Right Way” meaning; we are focused on what OC Select Basketball emphasizes. Are we trying at school and our chores at home; listening and being respectful, being honest, looking someone in the eye when they are talking, getting low on on defense, blocking out, chinning the ball, sprinting our cuts, taking high percentage shots, playing hard, playing together and striking first? Are we doing all of the little things necessary to make OC Select Basketball better each and every day? We ignore what everyone else is doing and focus on our fundamentals. Play the right way and we will be successful! We want to be smart,aggressive, uptempo,tough minded, well conditioned, unselfish and our disposition is to ATTACK in all that we do.

Our goal is to create lasting beliefs and values for our athletes on the court and off the court. OC Select will also serve as a second structure to keep kids accountable outside of their homes. A sound foundation is key to development and building model citizens.
We are all deeply passionate about player development in the game of life and basketball through a comprehensive system of play that our team can execute efficiently. This will allow us to experience the consistent results of competing and winning on and off of the court!
We believe the promotion and enhancement of personal development is the primary purpose of athletics. Select believe personal development includes the development of intellectual, emotional, social, physical and ethical capacities.
