My son loves all sports! He loves to play them and loves to watch our Boston teams play. When we were given the opportunity to take Evan to check out the new Jr. Celtics program at the TD Garden in Boston I knew he would be excited. As the kids get older it is harder to come up with birthday and Christmas gifts for them, giving them experiences is the way to go. I think this would be a great holiday surprise for any kid.
The Boston Celtics recently launched an official youth basketball platform where kids will have the chance to learn the values of Celtics basketball by participating in on-court training via exclusive events. Evan participated in the one this past Sunday at the TD Garden with a friend and they loved it.
There will be more than 20 clinics throughout inaugural season. The clinics will promote the values of Celtics basketball through on-court training and exclusive events in a safe and fun environment directed towards youth development. The clinics provide feature coaches, special guest VIP appearances and exclusive Jr. Celtics apparel. Clinics held at the Celtics’ Practice Facility in Waltham, or at TD Garden, will also feature exclusive access to team facilities.
Kids were put in to groups and then split up with their coaches to go to four stations. Shooting, finishing (lay ups), conditioning and dribbling skills drills. Then at the end they had to compliment their teammates.
They also got to meet Lucky who got them all psyched up.
We watched the Celtics game that night and Evan kept saying I was shooting right there!
