Coach Cliff's favorite teaching quote is telling kids that they are a "YETTIE." Kids often believe that they can't achieve certain goals on and off the court. Coach Cliff teaches them to add the word yet at the end of that statement. Instead of saying I can't do it they say I can't do it yet because Coach Cliff can and will help them reach their goals.
