We take pride in everything we do and recognize being a part of this team is an honor that we hold in high regards.

We do what’s right because it’s the right thing to do.


We are committed to overall well-being of the entire program.  We will do what is necessary to make the program successful on and off the court.


We strive for excellence in everything we do.  Never settling for less than what can best be achieved.

Hydration Formula

about 1 year ago

Hydration Formula: Your weight/2  Example: 180/2=90

90/16 because 16 ounces is amount in an average bottle= 5.625

 This means a player who weighs 180 lbs. should drink 6 bottles of water a day to

be properly hydrated.

During games and practices, add only an extra 24 ounces of water. This should be done in increments.

Eight ounces 30 minutes before activity and then 16 during activity.

Leaders Only (By Category)

Want to know the top player in any major category.  The best of the best are here.

Stat keeping is time-consuming and not as clear cut as you may think. The Golden Tide program owes a lot of thanks to the Clearfield Progress, former coaches Benny Irwin, Vic Gearhart, and Jim Fleming who have watched hours of film in order to keep the statistics as up to date as possible.  3-pointers have only been tracked since their inception during the 1987-88 season.  Steals, and charges drawn have been tracked since the 1988-89 season. Blocked shots and pass deflections since the 2000-01 season. No statistics are perfect and some coaches have put more emphasis on certain statistics.  This is the most accurate we can do.  Enjoy!
