What does it mean to be a Men's Basketball Player at PC?

Being a Pirate Basketball Player is not for everyone...It is only for those who truly enjoy challenging themselves on a daily basis.  The focus is:

  1. Become a Better Student
  2. Become a Better Person
  3. Become a Better Basketball Player

Those who come to PC committ to this Philosophy & each of those things will happen while they are here.

1)  Our Academic Success is paramount to any on the court success.  Our student-athletes will be expected to exert as much if not more energy into their success in the classroom.  We have a structured study hall & tutoring program to monitor success throughout each quarter.

2)  Our program focuses on giving back to the community.  We will be engaged in community service projects consistently throughout the school year.  We understand that the only way for us to make a difference in others lives is by being involved.  From reading to the local grade schoolers to helping at the YMCA to Schucking & cleaning crabs at PA's world famous Crab Fest our team will be involved.

3)  Our practices, games, strength, agility & skill development are organized, challenging & innovative.  The approach is that of a NCAA Division I university.  Each day the goal is very simple: to become better than you were the day before.  We train harder & with more intensity than others so that Games become the easy part of what we do.
