Why IWU...

I chose IWU because they are a program dedicated to building each other up as men of God and working every day in order to lift Him up.

IAm3 is...

IAm3 means you are going to put your brothers before yourself in everything you do on and off the court.  It means your approach to life is going to be humble.  It means that everything you do is for the betterment of the Kingdom of God.

Fearless is...

Being fearless is attacking everything you do with confidence, integrity and energy.  You don't allow anything to stand in between what you want to accomplish.

The IWU coaching staff is...

The coaches are not all about winning--in a good way.  They believe that if you do things God's way and for each other that the rest will figure itself out.  They truly set the example of what IAm3 looks like by constantly sacrificing for their God 1st and their team second.
