Mighty Mights


Dates

Begins December 8

Description

For the winter of 2019-2020, Boston Warriors and Mass Elite will be running a competitive basketball program for boys and girls grades one through four. Skill work includes lessons in shooting, ball handling, passing, triple threat, pivot work, defensive stances, jump shots, defensive positioning, 2on2s, 3on3s and 5on5s.

Philosophy

We will try to make the game fun and enjoyable while stressing that basketball is a game of fundamentals. Fundamentals are the key to success. The Boston Warriors Mighty Mights Program give young athletes the opportunity to play real games in an instructional setting. We will give young athletes the best of both worlds in each session. A certain percentage of every session will focus on skills, drills and fundamentals while the remaining time will be five-on-five games. We encourage players of all skill levels to join this program, and each player will be evaluated at the first session. It’s never too early or late to learn!

Divisions

Players will be placed in divisions by grade and skill level.

We will be using regulation 10-foot hoops for this program. If your child cannot reach the 10-foot hoop, then we suggest that you wait until next winter to enroll in the program.
