Are you ready to work hard and play harder?
Our skill development program is unlike any other program in New England.
Over the course of the year, players, coaches and parents are able to track progress through MyPremierHoops.
Players get points for attending workouts and can see how they measure up to other players on the Leader board. They can also track their goals, connect with other players, and see drills we cover at practice.
Our coaches come from a diverse background. We have coaches who have played at the D1 and Professional level. We also have coaches who coached at the D1, D2 and D3 level. 90% of our coaches have both player varsity basketball in high school and then played at the college level. A handful of our coaches are currently coaching at the high school and youth level.
Combining these coaches and our award winning skills training program produces incredible results for our players.
All skills training programs and basketball teams are limited in size and are 0pen to kids of all ages and levels of play. We split players by gender, age and skill level to make the best training experience.
Spring: Mid-March through Mid-June
Spring is the longest season and focuses on developing all fundamental skills of our players.
The “10-Week Spring Skills Challenge” breaks down a diverse amount of fundamental drills for players to learn and practice. It is split into 2 to 3 week segments of drill focuses such as “finishing and lay-ups”, “shooting and footwork”, “passing and fast-break”, “ball-handling and dribble moves”.
The 10-week program also allows each player to come to “scrimmage nights” where they can put the drills they practice into action.
The pricing for this program is very flexible, because a player may choose to workout 1-5 times per week.
The “Premier League” is a weekly league that runs in conjunction with the training program. Players can choose to play in the league, train or do both.
Games are played once per league and teams are split evenly by skill level.
Their are three divisions in the Premier League: Junior 3-5 grade, Junior Elite 6-8 grade, Elite 9-12 grade.
The league is perfect for players who want to stay competitive, but cannot commit to a full season of team practices and weekend tournaments.
**Good 2nd grade players may be invited to play and players may be moved up and down in division based on skill level.
**Players from the training program and/or league may be called up to play for a State Select Team.
“Elite State Select Teams” practice together, train in the “10-Week Spring Skills Challenge”, have the option of playing in the “Premier League” and play in some of the best weekend tournaments in New England!
Premier carries teams for boys and girls 5th through 12th grade. Each team is paired with a former coach of that age group or a new coach who fits the mold of that team.
Try-outs go on during January, February and sometimes March (for high school players). Players will find out whether or not they made a team in mid-late February. High school players may find out later.
Team practices begin in early-mid march.
**Payment plans, financial aid and scholarship programs are available.
Summer: Mid-June through End-August
“Elite 4S 8-Week Training Program” is one of the best and toughest training programs in New England.
This program combines elite development in these for criteria: Speed, Strength, Stamina, and Skills.
Workout sessions in the program are two hours long and are split into 30 minutes of speed/agility, 45-60 minutes of skill specific training, and 30-45 minutes of competitive scrimmaging.
Results from steady commitment to this program have been tremendous.

Summer Basketball Camps are also run for elementary through middle school players. These are full day and week camps where parents can have their children play basketball and make new friends, while they are at work.
Fall: Early-September through Late November
The fall training program focuses on getting our players ready for the winter season.
The main focuses of the fall are conditioning, shooting and ball-handling workouts. We want to tighten up our players’ shape and skills so that they are ready for try-outs and to make an impact in the winter season.
“Elite Fall Pre-Season Training” starts in early September and goes until late November.
There are training programs for boys and girls of all age levels, which typically include skills work once per week and scrimmage games once per week.
“Elite State Basketball Teams” are back for the fall season and these teams practice together on plays and also train together in the “Pre-Season Training Program”. The fall season is shorter than the spring, therefore teams will play in less weekend tournaments.
