WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.- Inviting in friends, family, alumni and community members, the Palm Beach Atlantic University men’s basketball program gathered on Saturday evening for the first meeting of head coach Terry Primm’s “Share the Vision” campaign. This initial group will help shape the foundation for what Primm and the rest of the Sailfish program believe will be a step forward for the entire program.
A Sailfish basketball and PBA student-athlete alum himself, Primm hosted the event in the Rubin Arena as former players joined current ones as well as supporters from the past and present to share their ideas on how to support the next phase of Sailfish basketball.
“We want to use an event like this to help kickoff a series of events that we believe will help make Palm Beach Atlantic basketball a program of affinity,” stated Primm.
“Building alumni connectivity is a big part of what we are trying to do as we build toward becoming a program our alumni can be proud of,” continued Primm on this historic night.
After greeting the group which included PBA Chairman of the Board John Greene, Primm went on with describing to the on-lookers his passion and plans for the program while offering up ways in which alumni and their networks can possibly get involved as far as giving back to the program.
Primm recently finished his first season at the helm of the men’s basketball program at PBA which included wins over nationally-ranked opponents such as Florida Southern College and Northwood University. The Sailfish also took on four different teams that advanced to the NCAA Division II men’s basketball championships.
“We have a goal in mind to introduce a culture change with Sailfish basketball and we feel the Lord’s call to become a premiere institution that honors God in all we do,” said Primm to the diverse group that were a part of the event.
PBA athletic director Bob White also shared during the evening as he gave the group a perspective on how Sailfish athletics is developing and the idea that the PBA administration has made a commitment to the success of their athletic programs on and off their respective playing surfaces.
Utilizing the theme of “Share the Vision”, Primm has planned to organize more of these type of events so that alumni may feel connected to the program they once called home.
