While the major part of the tournament season has slowed down a bit - the action did not. See below for all the latest news around Academy.
Boys Middle School Clinic/Tournament – A big hit!
On Sunday March 19th the Academy Boys program ran a successful clinic for middle school age boys. With over 100 boys registered, there was plenty of action to go around.
First the boys were provided with valuable skills development training before breaking up in to groups an playing in a fun (and instructional) tournament.
Boys from the Academy 15 – 18 year old teams were on hand to demonstrate drills and help teach the boys the basics of the game. The gym was boisterous throughout as the middle schoolers had a blast throughout the entire tournament. We hope that all the boys and their families had a great experience and hope to see as many as possible as we plan to form teams to take to a tournament later this spring!
