Mission Statement

The Lady Bulldog Basketball program is driven to create highly motivated female athletes both on and off the court.


Coaching Philosophy

Our coaching philosophy is that we focus on the safety and wellbeing of the student athlete.  We emphasis on raising the self-esteem of the athletes in and out of the sport, while  teaching them to excel past what limits they believe they have.  As a coaching staff we are here for the student-athlete during the season as well as the offseason.
