    Sergey on starting Blues Elite Program:
    “I am excited to work together with the Blues organization as well as PHASE 1 Basketball in launching the Blues Elite Program. I believe that when people who share the same passion, goals and work ethic come together - good things follow. And that is exactly the case with the Blues Elite program, where the goal and passion we all share is to help kids reach their full potential on and off the basketball court. We are committed to providing the Blues Elite with the training, competition and exposure opportunities they need in order to maximize their talents on the court, while also using basketball to teach them the values, work ethic and discipline that it takes to succeed in anything they choose to do after they are done playing.”
