"Do Your Best, Never Quit" Mission: To instill a life philosophy that promotes self esteem in children

The "Do Your Best, Never Quit" message teaches children to focus on the effort they apply to a situation instead of the end result. It teaches them that it's not about the win or loss, but that you play the game to the best of your ability. If you've truly done your best, you can accept the result in peace.

Note: OurSports Central no longer actively covers the American Basketball Association (ABA) as a professional league due in part to its inability to publish and play a schedule and the transitory nature of many of its teams.
