At these grade levels, the M14 Staffs main goal is to prepare all players for high school basketballs. It is a priority to make sure players understand the physical skill that is needed but also the mental approach that should be taken to handle high school basketball.
Why High School Prep?
All players in 7th-8th grade are classified as being in our High School Prep program. We use this label to set expectations and establish accountability.
Each individual grade level has its own set of individual skills, team concepts and over all approach that build on top of each other each year. While we appreciate our staff individual backgrounds within the sport of basketball, the M14 system is what they are trained on and what they must teach. This allows our managers to hold our coaches accountable. By holding our coaches accountable it will give your player the opportunity to have a positive experience and for all parties to stay focused on what is really important at these grade levels – DEVELOPMENT!
