2021 SKILL SESSIONS

CLICK HERE FOR REGISTRATION FORM


These sessions OUTDOORS at BLANCHARD are for players who are serious about improving current skills and learning new ones, specifically those players whose goals are to play town travel basketball and/or AAU basketball and eventually make Westford junior high and high school teams. PLEASE NOTE: Counselors will be more intense and demanding when evaluating performance and effort by participants, and players will be expected to be focused and follow directions at all times.  This clinic will also involve more physical conditioning drills than the Summer Clinic.

DATES:  

Tuesday and Thursday July 13 and 15, 20 and 22, and 27 and 29 

[rain dates Wed and Friday of each week carried over if necessary]

Entering grades 3-5: 845-1000 am

Entering grades 6-8:  1015-1130 pm

ALL GIRLS ENTERING 9TH GRADE WHO ARE INTERESTED IN SKILL CLINICS SHOULD CONTACT COACH COWARD.  THE HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM WILL BE CONDUCTING SUMMER WORKOUTS FOR ALL PROSPECTIVE PLAYERS, AND WE WOULD LIKE INCOMING 9TH GRADERS TO WORK WITH THE HIGH SCHOOL TEAM.

Cap at 20 players per week per session.


4 on 4 Summer League for Girls

Registration for Westford's 29th Annual 4-on-4 Summer Basketball League for boys and girls is now open. Westford's 4-on-4 Summer League was founded in 1993 by legendary Westford Academy Boys Varsity Coach Ed Scollan to help foster and develop individual skills. Run by the WA Boys' Basketball program, the premise of the league is that with only four players on the court at a time, each player will be more involved and active in the game. Each player will learn more individual basketball moves, will learn to move without the ball, cut, set screens, shoot, rebound, and play individual and team defense - all without having to worry about following additional instructions from a coach. Games are refereed by local high school students, which allows these local youths in the area to give back to the community.

The players coach themselves. Through this, they learn to truly be a part of a team, make basketball decisions as a group, take responsibility for their play and their teammates' play, and learn how to make mistakes and recover from them as individuals and as a team.
