We Are Royalty is a 3-part philosophy and way of teaching from the perspective of Coach JT Burks, who believes one of the most effective ways of mentoring is through athletics. "Everything I do is to inspire our people to understand we come from “Royalty”. Plus, you get paid for the work you put in multiple ways...A “Royal "priesthood as the Bible states. We are Kings and Queens! I am the standard not a statistic! When you are blessed, you act blessed, you talk blessed, you walk blessed and you live blessed!" Coach JT Burks
Part 1- A member of a royal family having the status of a King or Queen.
Part 2- Getting pain for the work you put in.
Part 3- A Royal priesthood and a chosen generation

"Some Of Our Team Philosophies"
TCOB The Culture Of Ball- meaning we don't complain or worry about the elements, refs, other teams etc... We just show up to ball and don't make excuses but adjustments and let the chips fall where they may.
"The Goal Is To Get Our Players To Play In College and Earn A Degree"
Our goal at Royalty Basketball is to teach our players about life and basketball. We thank all our community sponsors for making it all possible! So many of our players have made their respective school's teams (the first goal we set for our players), have great grades, working and are on the path to a college career.
