STATEMENT FROM CHUCK HAYES
It was always my lifelong dream to be a professional basketball player when I was a kid. To be able to play a game I love so much and provide for my family was always the path that I wanted to take. Never did I imagine that this simple game I played with other kids in my neighborhood in my youth would allow me to travel the world to places like the Dominican Republic, Europe and China. Not a day goes by where I am not grateful for the opportunity I have and the people it has allowed me to come in contact with.
This game has done more for me then just allowing me to play basketball for a living, it has helped form and mold me into the person I am today. The game of basketball is more than just points and rebounds, wins and losses, it’s about the work ethic and perseverance it instills in you, it’s about the relationships you build and being a part of a team atmosphere and realizing it’s not just about me. If you learn to play the game the right way with the right attitude and develop a team mindset it really shapes who you become as you go throughout your life.
I was fortunate that so many individuals invested their time and effort in teaching me the basic fundamentals of the game and the respect I needed to have towards my coaches, teammates and opponents. It was through their coaching and teaching that I developed my positive attitude, dedication and the character I needed to be successful no matter what my career path would have been. It is my goal to share my knowledge and take the time to teach others not only how to improve their skill set but more importantly show them how to become positive role models in whatever they choose to pursue.
