Tyree Parker is a hard worker having worked with a wide range of youth in the Upstate Region and particularly in the Western New York Area. He is motivated to identify, educate, and develop prospective Student-Athletes throughout the city of Buffalo.
Tyree’s current and primary goal is to build a program that develops student athletes and incorporate Determination Dedication and Discipline through athletics with hopes of instilling confidence and character development among our youth.
THE PROGRAM, THE VISION
Tyree’s program over the years has provided a variety of developmental opportunities for our youth. Many of which address specific needs for the development and advancement of our Student-Athletes. Some of the services provided are skill instruction, camps, NCAA Eligibility Education as well as scholarship opportunities.Throughout his 16 years of coaching youth sports he has learned that not only can you develop a player’s physical talent but perhaps more importantly inspire a higher standard of success in every avenue of their life, most notable their academics. It’s the connection of Academics and Athletics that is the core concept for “EDUCATION THROUGH ATHLETICS”. A student Athlete must work hard to be great in their academic career while dealing with family, school, and NCAA guidelines. We know by experience that this mindset will pay dividends long after their playing career is over. My vision is to help my student athletes be better men with good character in life.
