The Loudoun Freedom promotes player effort and growth, not just "results". The Freedom strives to create basketball players of strong moral character by stressing these fundamental values:

- Teamwork, selflessness, and a team-first mentality
- Sportsmanship and respect for oneself, teammates, coaches, parents, opponents, and officials
- Hard work and effort

When it comes to basketball and teams, we hold these as non-negotiables (they are not optional for players and coaches! This list will grow!
- Boxing Out
- Defense (including effort)
- Teamwork and Selflessness
- Good Attitudes

The organization supports competitiveness while avoiding a "win-at-all cost" mentality. The organization also promotes a culture of chemistry, unity and mutual support among our members.
Members support each other's daughters on the team, support the coaching staff and support the organization.
It is very important that we have coaches who embody the values of the Freedom and whose top priority is the development and well-being of their players. We promote positive, confidence-building coaching that emphasizes fairness and a team-first mentality. One of the most important ways to retain players and grow is to have quality coaches.
The Loudoun Freedom has always been involved in the community. We seek to not only build ties with social, charitable, business, and other community organizations but also develop a sense of community involvement in our members.
