Who We Are

3point Team

From Co-Founder, Pete Mitchell:

Let's skip the boring sports resume. I entered youth sports instruction in 1998 with a bag of basketballs and an opportunity to teach an after school program at a local school.

Since that day my colleagues and I have been assembling a team that now partners with, supports & services over 50 of your favorite local schools, parks, clubs & community centers to offer sports programs that families can truly appreciate. I dedicate myself and my team to ensuring the highest quality programs are offered to Chicagoland's young people through its local communities.

There are two things I remember about growing up playing basketball, baseball, tennis, football & soccer. One was that it was fun! The other is that it was even more fun to witness the rewards of your own self-improvement as a result of your desire to learn and achieve.

There is no better self esteem booster than gaining confidence in yourself. And if you get to have fun while you're doing it, you get to have your cake and eat it too. With what I do now, I still expect to improve as a player, a teacher, and a person every day. I tell my instructors if they care about what they are teaching and who they are teaching it to, all the other pieces will fall into place.

FAVORITE SPORTS STRATEGY:
Play the ball. Don't let it play you. This applies in school and in life.

FAVORITE SPORT: Basketball

FAVORITE TEAM:
Wisco Badger Basketball - Bo knows best!

CHEAP ADVICE:
Attitude. Be positive! You can't control every random event that happens in the world, but you can control your approach to dealing with it. Come into every situation being positive and understanding that no matter how much bad stuff comes at you, you have the ability to roll with the punches.

GREW UP IN:
Kankakee, IL (50 odd miles south of Chicago & in Arlo Guthrie's "City of New Orleans")

LEARNED STUFF:
Early years - School of Hard Knocks then on to 8 years of being Fighting Irish (Bishop McNamara HS '89 & Univeristy of Notre Dame '93)

FAVORITE SPORTS & LIFE STRATEGY:
Anything's possible. That's why we play the games. No one ever won a game on paper. Jimmy V hit the nail on the head - Don't give up. Don't ever give up. No one remembers the favored teams that win big. It's the big underdog that achieves the seemingly impossible that captures our hearts and attention.

FAVORITE SPORT: Golf

FAVORITE TEAM:
Present - Chicago Cubs. Future - Every team that my 2 1/2 year old daughter Emma plays on.

FAVORITE BOOKS/MOVIES:
Harry Potter & Lord of the Rings. Being an only child, I always love the things that challenge & spur the imagination.

WATCH OUT FOR:
Emma Regnier, Class of 2028. She already has some of my post moves & she doesn't take no for an answer.

SOMETHING YOU DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT ME:
Even though I have been golfing since the age of 3, I have never had a hole in one. I do, however, have a more rare double eagle to my credit (Hole #5 @ Burke Memorial Golf Course, University of Notre Dame)
