A quick Google search of the word practice will show the following definition: “repeated exercise in or performance of an activity or skill so as to acquire or maintain proficiency in it.”
I could not agree with this definition more. One of the core principles of our philosophy is building a program that is rooted in the foundation of practice. There is a stark difference between raw untamed talent and one who’s honed his skill through repeated practice.
Practice provides an opportunity to repeatedly fail, with each failure building us up that much closer to our final goal. The Mavericks teams, of all ages, have been put through this repeated process of practice to bring out the best in them.
