We want to continue to improve our skills and strategies in order to compete with the best in the region.” He also added that another major goal is to foster a strong sense of camaraderie and sportsmanship within the team. According to Coach Khan, the key to achieving these goals is discipline and hard work. He believes that with dedication and determination, the team can overcome any challenges they may face on the court. One of the factors that contribute to the team’s success is the talent and skill of their returning players.
