3rd base is an organisation committed to the growth of the individual; physically, spiritually and mentally, through sport.
The measure for this growth is ‘excellence’. Excellence; wanting to be better, not settling for mediocrity.
Excellence can be applied to all individuals at all levels. From ‘grass roots/entry level through to the elite athletes, achieving excellence at each stage will ultimately lead to increased standards and performance, therefore higher performance at all levels.
The individual is not only the participant/player, but also the coaches/teachers, family / whanau and community / iwi. Each ‘team’ is made up of individuals and each individual is part of a ‘team’.
One will not prosper and ultimately succeed without the other.
