Music that gets us pumped

Though the cold and dark of winter may result in a lack of motivation for many of us, it’s got nothing on the student-athletes of Marin Academy’s basketball program.   How do they do it?  Kacie Martinez, Associate Athletic Director and Girls Varsity Basketball Assistant Coach shares that the secret for many of our students is the “pump-up song” – the music that gets them jazzed for a workout, practice, or game, despite the many distractions and obligations that may be calling their names.

Check out the music that is currently motivating our basketball players and add your own favorite songs in the comments below!
