Respect – We respect ourselves by making healthy decisions in every facet of our lives. We respect each other as teammates in the ways that we openly communicate and inclusively interact. We respect the game of women’s basketball and all involved.
Attitude – We have a positive, growth mindset in every situation we face. We use positive language both verbally and nonverbally to communicate our ideas and thoughts. We are direct, open, honest, inclusive and transparent.
Preparation – “If we are going to do something, we are going to do it well!”
