Totino-Grace Men’s Basketball Program Mission Statement

The mission of the Totino Grace Men’s Basketball program is to prepare tomorrow's leaders by developing a team that pursues excellence by strengthening its athletes' faith in Jesus Christ, achieving excellence in Christian character, and training, preparing, and competing at the highest possible level so that all we do glorifies God.

1. Mental Toughness: It will be demanding physically and mentally to prepare our young men for life.

2. Team: We will work together, struggle together, grow together and ultimately succeed together. We want their direction to be a positive direction if they can stay with us for four years.

3. Achievement: It is our purpose to help young men develop the ability to truly maximize their gifts in an environment where educational and athletic achievements are a priority.

4. The journey: It is the process that will make us successful. We will become aware of the importance of the vital personal relationships that really test and develop us.

5. What we do and how we do it: In the basketball program results are important in that they are a large part of defining excellence and determining the quality of what we do, and yet how we do things is as important as what we do.

6. The future: Development of the qualities of personal and team leadership, accountability to each other, perseverance in the face of adversity, singleness of purpose and an understanding of the importance of doing our best each day will help these young men lead lives of significance beyond their high school years.

Totino-Grace appointed Nick Carroll to lead the school’s boys basketball program starting in the 2017-2018 season. Nick is a 2006 graduate of Cretin-Derham Hall and 2010 graduate of Hamline University. He served as assistant coach to Augsburg College and Minnetonka High School boys basketball programs and is currently a head coach at D1 Minnesota.

Nick shares, “I chose to come to come to Totino-Grace because the culture for excellence in all aspects was undeniable. From administration, to staff, to students, the continuity in vision for where this place is going was too strong not to be a part of.”

His enthusiasm for motivating student athletes extends to future Eagles as well, adding, “We are committed to making Totino-Grace a place where prospective student-athletes can come accomplish their goals on the court, in the class room, and most important, in the real world. It is our mission to utilize basketball as a vehicle to build young men that can go impact the world long after their time at TG.”
