Q: What differentiates Premier from other programs?

A: Best basketball coaching in New England! All of our coaches have had significant experience coaching youth players. Many of our coaches have played in College and Professionally.

Low coach to player ratio. We limit all workout sessions to a 1:8 coach to play ratio, but at some you will find 1:5 coach to player ratio.

Huge focus on skill development as a player and as a team. Our coaches spend more than half of each practice session teaching offensive and defensive fundamentals so that players are able to transfer this into actual games.

There are spring basketball teams at all different age levels for boys and girls.

If you are interested in playing on one of our basketball teams please email premierhoops@gmail.com or call 781-724-8125.
