BattleGrounds begins the week of November 1st! It will offer development, games and be housed at the M14 Bubble! This ensures we can allow our players to play in a controlled environment. BattleGrounds offers 2 practices a week and 30 games.
Our Battle Grounds Academy 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 Battle Grounds Academy is the right choice for you!
