Our Academy Teams program is the right choice for your player if the following matter to you as a parent:
Development: Your player is interested in playing games but not sacrificing individual development while doing so. Practicing on ‘plays’ is important but at this age there still needs to be a huge emphasis on individual development while teaching team concepts. The M14 System was created to ensure our professional coaching staff does not lose focus during the course of the season. The point of basketball is to play in the game (we haven’t forgotten that!) but at the youth level we believe individual development has to be a priority as well.
Coaching: ALL our coaches are employees of M14Hoops (part-time or fully employed). This allows the focus to be on every player and because the focus is on each player improving. Our coaches must pass our internal training classes to be able to coach a team as well and are managed by our Directors. This allows us to trouble-shoot any issues quickly and professionally.
If 1 or both of these items matter, our Academy Teams is the right choice for you!
Our Spring/Summer Academy Teams programs starts March and end mid-June. ***8th graders season will end in July because they are off in the month of June to take part in their high school basketball camps.**
Middle School Prep is how we classify all our 4th and 5th grade teams. We classify this way to make sure parents, players and coaches always remember what we are preparing our players for. The winter season has concluded and Spring ball offers another opportunity for your player to develop, learn teamwork and play games! We start in March and end mid-June. We offer teams for every level players.
High School Prep is how we classify all our 6th, 7th and 8th grade teams. We classify this way to make sure parents, players and coaches always remember what we the next goal in each players progression should be. Players are one step closer to high school basketball and our #1 focus is to have them prepared! We always want our teams to be competitive and we have found a unique way to be competitive and still focus on development. We offer teams for every level players.
At the high school level our classification system changes; we offer Regional and National Teams. Our National teams will play a schedule that involves traveling to out of state tournaments 4-6 times. If your player feels they have a high level of talent, skill, and athleticism then make sure they attend our National Team Tryouts
At the high school level our classification system changes; we offer Regional and National Teams. Our Regional teams will play a schedule that involves less travel and is more focused on development to assist players for the upcoming high school season.
