The FEIA Falcon Basketball Programs are designed to support and develop the skills of our student-athletes by providing the opportunity to work with highly qualified coaches and high-performance athletes. In past seasons, teams have played in some of the greatest and most unique cities of the U.S., as well as the Bahamas, and Canada.
It is our vision to provide high-quality education paired with top-quality basketball training programs in a safe and positive environment to meet the needs and goals of each individual athlete.
Our mission for FEIA Athletics is to inspire every one of our student-athletes to reach their goals while becoming well rounded, mature, and holistically healthy leaders of our community.
As a key part of our program, our coaching and leadership teams work to instill four key values in all of our student-athletes:
Who you are in public is who you are in private. People of solid character never waiver in who they are – or adjust their standards to fit in. We will be people of integrity in what we do and say.
We do what we say we’re going to do. Hard work, long nights, sore muscles, are all evidence of an unmatched commitment. This program has committed to you. Your teammates, your education, and this program deserve the same in return.
Hard work, selfless play, and the mental toughness to push through even when we don’t want to. Discipline starts between the ears and manifests in your hands, feet, and mouth.
Even the best players have coaches. None of us can perfect the game, and we need to remain humble and coach-able to grow and develop. No one is above this team. Be quick to listen, and slow to speak.
