For the winter of 2017-2018, the Boston Warriors will be running a competitive basketball program for boys grade 1 to grade 4
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 Mites Program give boys the opportunity to play actual games in an instructional setting. We will give boys the best of both worlds in each session. A certain percentage of every session will be skills, drill and fundamentals and the rest will be actual games. We will evaluate players at the first session. We encourage any level of play including beginners to join. We will try to dictate the level of instruction to the individual needs of the student. It’s never too early or late to learn.
Players will be placed in divisions by grade and skill level (as well as what is most beneficial to them)
**Some parents have asked about height of the basketball hoops for the program. We will be using regulation 10 foot hoops for this program. If your son cannot reach the 10 foot hoop, then we suggest to him wait until next winter to enroll in the program.
