Welcome to the Winter Youth Academy Teams
Tryouts are the 3rd week of August for girls and the 4th week of August for boys. Practice begins the week of November 1st! It will offer development, games and great competition.
Our Academy Teams are 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 paid at 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 are the right choice for you!
