AMID the Covid-19 lockdown, the China Town Super Tech Titans continue to train individually in the comfort of their own homes. Head coaches Sohn Macaranas and Walt Mendez have also been instructing each Titan to reflect on their weaknesses.

“This is the perfect time to get into off-season training,” Mendez said. “The players can dedicate time to their craft and work specifically on an area they wish to improve.”

Mendez and Macaranas stress the importance of time management especially during the pandemic. “Improvement isn’t restricted to basketball, but to life in general,” Mendez said. “What is important is the time they take to work on individual growth, whether it be education, hobby, relationships, strength and conditioning, or a targeted basketball skill.” 

He added, “We encourage our youth to continue to train at home using the tools that they have at their disposal,” which include YouTube and Google.

Once the Covid-19 restrictions are lifted, Mendez said the Super Tech Titans plan to “get back together and hold team building and bonding activities.”

He said, “It would be a perfect time to rekindle their passion for basketball. This pandemic has really put a perspective on how we interact socially. We know that the kids truly miss the camaraderie and competitive spirit of actual play.”
