Cactus Athletics is made up of a group of individuals whose common goal is to teach people of all ages how to become better athletes. What separates us from others is our strong moral values and commitment to the fundamentals of athletics. Starting with each player’s individual skill level we will specialize a program to help maximize their full potential. We believe in positive reinforcement, hard work and hustle. When you attend one of our events or work with us one-on-one, prepare yourself for great competition, outstanding professional coaching and most of all fun! Listed below are our core values. We understand that what we are teaching goes beyond the playing field.
Honesty- Always tell the truth and think of others first. This is a sign of a true friend and teammate. Play the game hard and play it the right way.
Overcome- Life can be difficult and full of adversity. When we fail, it is an opportunity to try again. We need to realize that when we go though tough times it is God’s way of strengthening and preparing us for bigger things in life.
Modesty- Be confident, not cocky. This includes how we act off the field. The way we act, how we dress, what we read and watch on television will affect you and those around you. Are you being a good example to your friends?
Energy- When we have fire in our hearts it will show in everything that we set out to accomplish. If you want to be successful in life you are going to have to put forth the effort to do it. Do whatever it is that makes you happy, and do it with passion!
Respect- Treat others the way you want to be treated. Be fair in everything you do and take care of your belongings. This includes not throwing down your equipment! An act like that is disrespectful to the people who you received it from and you also look childish.
Understanding- We are all different and that is what makes us special. People will react to things in differently. When we are part of a team we learn to blend all of our strengths to give ourselves the best opportunity to overcome our opposition. Be patient in everything that you do.
Noble- Have high moral standards and principles. Focus on your goals, plan them out and then work hard to accomplish them. Make sure when you look in the mirror at night you can tell yourself that you were a good example to others and gave your best effort.
