Jr. Celtics Basketball Clinics
We’re HUGE Celtics fans in the McClelland family. I grew up loving the Celtics (Larry Bird was the man back then for my father!) and my 2 older brothers played youth basketball throughout their childhood and teens years. I always felt really comfortable on a basketball court! When I became the mom of 4 sons, basketball was just something the boys have always played. From the time they were toddlers we had a hoop in our driveway. They’ve just been obsessed with the game playing 2 on 2 and loving the experience of it all. Since we’re Rhode Island based – the Celtics have been our team of choice from the beginning. My husband is from Pittsburgh (no NBA team there!), so the Celtics became his personal team, too. It’s been fun throughout the years watching my guys become fans of the game through the Celtics and just by playing on their own.
My 13 year old son Alex didn’t make the middle school basketball team and it really bummed him out. Instead of wallowing in it, he decided to become laser focused on how to get better and really up his game. I’m so proud of him because you need to work hard to be great… and I can already see the fire in his eyes! I recently found out about the Jr. Celtics Basketball Clinics for him and I was thrilled to get all the information! These are the PERFECT clinics for young kids who love the game of basketball.
What are the Jr. Celtics Basketball Clinics?
Jr. Celtics Basketball Clinics are the most exciting youth basketball experience for boys/girls aged 5-14! Stepping on court at TD Garden or the Auerbach Center, your child will learn from Celtics VIPs what it means to “Be a Celtic” while improving their game in an entertaining skill development program designed for players competing at an elite level or picking up a ball for the first time. Parents benefit from exclusive access to Celtics facilities and receive pictures taken on-court by our team photographer.
