Building Community Through Athletics
Why choose the Spartans?
Our mission is bigger than basketball, no matter if your basketball career ends after high school, college, or further. All of our athletic careers will come to an end. However, the lessons, friendships, and character development that took place during that career will last forever.
We believe in developing our athletes as both ball players and people.
Along with tournaments, basketball practice, and training 3x a week. Our season includes leadership development workshops, team bonding events, and community service opportunities.
SSF's ultimate goal is to shape local youth-culture to become more socially connected and engaged in healthy activities. SSF leaders and athletes work together to create opportunities for their peers to have a healthy community. Leveraging the 50 enrichment events per year as a spring board, they seek to fill what we believe has become the most critical need for youth, healthy relationships.

We have a crown as our logo because we believe every youth should be treated like royalty, in both the way we value our athletes and in how we expect them to use their influence to shape the world around us.
