MISSION STATEMENT

Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Dream Vision Basketball Travel Program!

Being part of this program will afford you an experience that will build your athletic capacity as well as promote academic excellence, character, and good sportsmanship.

Clayton Williams
Dream Vision Founder Clayton Williams.

Dream Vision prides itself as a program of morality, compassion, and establishment.  A basketball program such as Dream Vision not only focuses on athletic skill and ability, but also focuses on proper health, nutrition, fitness, well-being, and academics.  Academic achievement among our players is the center of our basketball program.  Academic failure is the common factor to many shattered dreams of becoming a legendary college or professional basketball player.

Please believe parental involvement helps to improve and sustain high achievement and outstanding character; therefore, parental involvement is strongly encouraged in the Dream Vision Basketball Program.  Parent volunteers will be needed on a regular basis.  We solicit the expertise of the parents in event planning, coordinating travel arrangements, tutoring and community service projects.

The staff of Dream Vision Youth Foundation and the coaching staff of Dream Vision Basketball are committed to backing the mission and vision of Dream Vision and are committed to our players.  Participation in the Dream Vision’s basketball program will be fun, competitive, and electrifying.

PROGRAM

The purpose of Dream Vision Basketball Program is to enhance the basketball skills and abilities in aspiring college and professional basketball players in addition to promoting character-building, academic success and healthy lifestyles.

Through routine practice, health and fitness, training and team group sessions, the players will build the capacity as a team.  Though Dream Vision Basketball is a highly competitive basketball program, the focal point of instruction is sportsmanship and character.  Dream Vision Program creates an environment to optimize any individual and team excellence and fun.
