This is Cager Nation!
"Fundamentals, Teamwork, Winning"

Led by Head coach Mark Coffman, who brings over 25 years of professional and division one college coaching experience, the Cagers embody hard work, discipline, a winning mindset. The goal of Cager Basketball is to prepare players for high school basketball. Our focus is to teach the correct fundamentals and improve basketball IQ . Individual success is based on team play and understanding of team concepts. Tall kids do not simply stand under the basket and shoot layups. All players are held accountable to learn multiple positions, as well as be able to function at those spots. This allows Cager players to excel in any system that a coach may choose to utilise.
