Our POINT 3 team's relationship with basketball ranges from the days of shooting around in the park, to our first organized youth league game, to making the varsity squad, to hearing our name called on draft night, to now watching our own children learn to play.
Basketball has been such a huge part of our lives; both in terms of athletics and our development as people. Every single one of us can quickly recall a basketball life lesson that stuck with us and still resonates today.
For that, we still thank the special coach who shared that message. Whether it was a parent volunteering or a professional coach, there have been people along the way who made sure we gave back as much as we were getting from the sport we love so much.
That is why we jumped at the chance to partner with the Positive Coaching Alliance. PCA does such tremendous work with athletes of all ages and quite honestly we are humbled to be associated with them.
PCA's methods and priorities in teaching the fundamentals of the game -- and life – is how we want to be helping the game grow. As stated in our joint press release, this “joint effort is based around shared interest in prioritizing work ethic, sportsmanship and teamwork in sports.” Certainly, our company initiative of “We Care About Basketball” draws a lot of inspiration from the way PCA goes about building foundations to make better players and people.
That stuff matters to us. The members of our team all grew up playing the game, some at the highest levels, and many of us are still active both as participants and parents. Basketball is a true love of ours and we are committed to helping foster and nurture that passion.
Joining with PCA is a great fit and we are looking forward to working together. To put our money where our mouth is, we will be donating a portion of shipping and handling fees to PCA. You will also start seeing their name and some content across our social media channels, and POINT 3 will be featured across PCA’s various digital platforms.
Thanks for being a part of our efforts to grow the game the right way!
