At these grade levels, the M14 Staffs main goal is to prepare these players for middle school basketball which is the first step in their preparation for high school tryouts. We understand that is years away however, we believe development is a process and if our staff takes the time to be thorough, we can ensure each player has been introduced to the correct individual and team skills to help them be successful at the middle school level!
Why Middle School Prep?
All players in 4th-6th grade are classified as being in our Middle 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!
