The OPEN Basketball Nation is a group of people from around the world who have made the choice to use basketball as a way to enjoy physical activity with friends, build a habit of perseverance, seek ways to help others, 和 cultivate a culture of gratitude.

Welcome to the OPEN Basketball Nation.                                 #OPENBasketballNation

The foundation of this movement is a student/player journal designed to help young people reflect on their actions 和 attitudes in a way that promote positive self-talk 和 a culture of gratitude. Nine guided reflections can be used by physical educators 和 coaches who underst和 that building culture through sport must be purposeful 和 planned. The student journal is based on the Believe in You video series produced to build a culture of self-confidence 和 a community of support within your school.
