PHILOSOPHY

Lightning Family Six Pillars:  

THANK YOU JESUS

“First I appreciate and thank God alone for every Blessing and every lesson He has allowed us to go through and overcome together! I also am thankful to Jesus for all the Great Colorado Lightning players, families, coaches, trainers, supporters, and sponsors for all of our successes and commitment to our development on and off the court over the past 8 years . Your dedication to our players, to the Lightning Family philosophy, and Knowing God is paying off for us now in the present time and will continue forever into the future. I look forward to the next level in our development constantly achieving continuous improvement. Many Blessings” Coach C

More Than Just Basketball

REJOICE ALWAYS, PRAY CONTINUALLY, GIVE THANKS IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES; FOR THIS IS GOD’S WILL FOR YOU IN CHRIST JESUS. 1 THESSALONIANS 5:16-18

At Colorado Lightning, we utilize basketball mentorship as a vehicle to empower holistic youth athlete development. Rather than solely skills on the hardwood, our faith-based athletic training focuses on cultivating well-rounded student-athletes through integrating faith in youth basketball.

Firmly grounded in Christian principles of integrity, service and growth, our values-driven basketball coaching approach nurtures young people in body, mind and spirit. We champion youth empowerment through sports and faith – intentionally building character beyond the court so that excellence formed here positively shapes lives for future impact.

Our character-building youth basketball programs strengthen skills and ethics in equal measure. We foster spiritual growth in youth sports as an instrument for participant advancement at all levels, believing athletic participation can further faith and leadership capabilities off the floors as well.

Through our basketball mentorship program, we balance sports skill-building with faith-focused development. By integrating Christian principles into competitive play, we model transferring values like integrity and discipline into game-time decisions. When young athletes learn to apply what they gain from spiritual growth opportunities directly to on-the-court scenarios, it demonstrates practical impact. Our goal is for the links between basketball training and faith foundations to ultimately equip youth to activate their full potential as empowered, well-rounded individuals.
 
Join us in nurturing tomorrow’s leaders through athletic training anchored in conveying compassion, discipline and wisdom both in youth basketball and beyond.
