Mission: CHAMPIONS ACADEMY DESIRES TO UTILIZE THE STAFF'S DECADES OF BASKETBALL COACHING AND PLAYING EXPERIENCE AT THE NBA, WNBA, DIVISION 1 COLLEGE AND HIGH SCHOOL LEVELS TO PASSIONATELY TEACH THE GAME OF BASKETBALL TO ASPIRING STUDENT-ATHLETES REGARDLESS OF THEIR SOCIO OR ECONOMIC BACKGROUNDS. KNOWING THE GREAT VOLUME OF YOUNG PEOPLE WHO LOVE TO PLAY BASKETBALL, WE HOPE TO USE OUR ABILITY TO TEACH THE TECHNIQUES OF BASKETBALL TO ULTIMATELY TEACH THE STUDENTS THE LIFE SKILLS THAT WILL ULTIMATELY LEAD THEM TO SUCCESS REGARDLESS OF THE ENDEAVORS THAT THEY WILL ENCOUNTER.MENTORING AND MINISTERING TO THE NEEDS OF STUDENTS FROM ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, MIDDLE SCHOOL, HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE IS A MUCH NEEDED ACTIVITY IN OUR SOCIETY TODAY. HOWEVER, IT IS DIFFICULT TO GET PAST "THE WALLS"OF THESE STUDENTS, BUT WHEN WE TEACH THEM BASKETBALL TECHNIQUES THAT LEAD THEM TO GREAT SUCCESS ON THE BASKETBALL COURT, THEY PUT DOWN THOSE WALLS AND ALLOW US TO TEACH THEM WHAT THEY REALLY NEED. THE NEEDS THAT WE ACTIVELY ADDRESS ARE: HOW TO SEEK OUT AND RECEIVE COACHING/TEACHING, HOW TO GIVE AND SHOW RESPECT, HOW TO SACRIFICE SHORT TERM ADVERSITY FOR LONG TERM GAIN, HOW TO FUNCTION EFFECTIVELY IN A TEAM, HOW TO BE A QUALITY TEAMMATE, HOW TO TREAT PEOPLE LIKE THEY WOULD WANT TO BE TREATED. SINCE 2005 WE HAVE SUCCESSFULLY USED OUR PROVEN PROGRESSION OF BASKETBALL TEACHING, COACHING AND TRAINING TO IMPART THESE LIFE SKILLS INTO THE MORE THAN 1000 ATHLETES THAT HAVE LOOKED TO OUR CHAMPIONS ACADEMY STAFF.ED SCHILLING, WAS A HEAD HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL COACH AND ENGLISH/PHYSICAL EDUCATION TEACH FOR SEVEN YEARS THEN SERVED AS AN ASSISTANT COACH AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS, THE NEW JERSEY NET (N.B.A.), A HEAD COACH AT WRIGHT STATE UNIVERSITY (NCAA DIVISION 1) AND AN ASSISTANT COACH AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MEMPHIS BEFORE LAUNCHING THE NOT-FOR-PROFIT CHAMPIONS ACADEMY IN 2005.
