My boys both love basketball (especially my 14 year old who is OBSESSED) and they love rooting for their favorite team – The Celtics. We’re going to our first game of the season in a few weeks and then in December both of my boys will be participating in one of the Jr. Celtics Clinics at the TD Garden (also, it’s really hard for me not to call it the Boston Garden). My two did one of the Jr. Celtics Clinics last year (read all about our experience here), so they are pumped to do it again.

Jr. Celtics teaches the core values of Boston Celtics Basketball as part of its mission to improve healthy youth development in the Boston community.

The Boston Celtics have expanded the Jr. Celtics program this year by adding a series of new programs and events. The Jr. Celtics program teaches the core values of Boston Celtics Basketball as part of its mission to improve healthy youth development in the Boston community through basketball programs. Programs include Basketball Clinics, Coaches Clinics, Leagues, Tournaments and Summer Camps.

The core values of Boston Celtics Basketball taught throughout Jr. Celtics programming include:

  • Habits learned on the court impact the way we live our lives after the games are over.
  • Everyone has a role to play. Star in your role as a player, parent, or coach.
  • Improve your skills, become a better teammate, and perform like a champion.
