Living Rock Academy encourages students to get involved, and basketball is one way to do so. Our middle school basketball program is for girls of all skill levels (grades 5th-8th) and feeds directly into our Varsity Programs. LRA coaches place a higher value on attitude and effort than on the outcome of a game; sportsmanship, integrity, teamwork and character on and off the court are the values that characterize a winner at Living Rock.


In practice, we focus on the foundational skills such as passing, rebounding, ball-handling, and defensive and offensive drills in order to form an understanding of these basics while enhancing techniques. We scrimmage and run game like scenarios on a day-to-day basis with the goal of running a variety of offensive plays with multiple defensive options at the Middle School level. Our primary focus however is not the outcome of a game, but growing and encouraging every athlete towards a Christlike attitude with an emphasis on good attitude, encouragement, and hard work towards their peers and opponents alike in order to not only be a great athlete on the court, but a standout in the classroom and the world around them.
