Meet The Face Behind Evolution Basketball
I’m Tai Chau, the proud owner of Evolution Basketball.
I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.
I’m passionate about basketball and have been coaching the game for the past eighteen years, as I love helping kids stay active, imbibe new skills, and have fun.
However, four years ago, I decided to leave the club that I was coaching with to start a training development program of my own, as I had a different vision. My mission was to teach the fundamentals of the sport while imparting life skills to the children.
My coaching style has always been to allow kids to get out of their comfort zone, make mistakes, and learn from one another, as I feel it’s the only way to improve. So I included these values as part of my methodology.
I also designed the program so that everyone would get accepted no matter what their background was, whom they played for before, and whether they had a financial burden or not. I was willing to work with all families, as I have seen so many kids turned away as a result of not being good enough and not having access to quality facilities. I was determined to make a change.
My philosophy proved popular with parents, and within twenty-four months, I received plenty of requests to create teams so that the young wards could showcase their talents. An overwhelming number of players turned up for tryouts, and I managed to build four teams.
The most rewarding part of owning my business is being able to see how the kids progress with their training and development each week, each month and year, by becoming better players and people. I’m proud to have played a role in the transition during their formative years.
As an individual, I believe what sets me apart from the others is that I’m known for having strong communication and leadership skills. I’ve built a caring family environment and kept promises to players and their parents, which has built up trust.
I also attribute my success to my incredible coaching team and our shared core values of training players to work hard and expect nothing less. We also encourage them to be competitive at all times, but it’s never just about the win on the scoreboard, and more about helping them to become the best version of themselves on and off the court.
When happy players and parents refer friends to my program, it gives me immense satisfaction. I now plan to start an in-house league this spring 2020 to provide an opportunity for those who were not able to make the cut in other clubs to get a chance to participate in the sport that they love. It will also be a chance for them to meet new teammates and make friends.
When I am not coaching, I love learning about fitness and golfing. I also give back to the community, and I’ve donated to Sick Kids and Operation Eyesight for the past ten years.
I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things which matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
