ABOUT OUR PROGRAM
The Ysleta High School Indians are a District 2-5A school with a 100-year tradition of excellence here in El Paso, Texas. Continuing that tradition, the goal of the Indians basketball program is to provide a positive environment in which young men can develop a vision of themselves succeeding whether it be academically, socially, athletically or emotionally. The Indian Coaching staff is committed to excellence in athletics as a part of a larger commitment to excellence through education. They are dedicated to create an atmosphere where everyone feels like they are part of the, “TRIBE!”
Ysleta Basketball's mission is to promote character traits of high value through setting standards and expectations for our student-athletes on and off the basketball court. We are convinced that although the game of basketball should be fun for athletes to play, it can also be used as a vehicle for teaching, educating, and preparing these young men to make sound decisions that will affect their future to come.
Through hard work and determination, our student-athletes will develop drive to take their talents to the highest level of performance, embrace dicipline needed to reach their goals, they will learn to work together as a TEAM in pursuit of a common goal and they will exemplify fairness and respect towards others. As coaches, our staff will never lose sight of the fact that basketball is a game. Winning will never be put ahead of an individual. This program will set a tone that will establish a, “Family Atmosphere” and “Winning Tradition” for years to come!
