2021 new Winter Schedule.png

Welcome to the 2022-2023 Winter Basketball Season at the John M. Barry Boys & Girls Club of Newton. Our Annual Winter Basketball season is almost here, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome back old faces as well as meet new ones. After a strong Winter Basketball Season last year, we are thrilled to see how players utilized the off season to continue to develop their skills. This year, all players will be inspired by their coaches to become better players as well as learn how to work in a group setting. Coaches will focus on creating a team community based on Respect, Reliability, & Responsibility while aiming to win a Championship. This season will be all about skill and character development!

 

We're grateful to continue to have the opportunity to make a direct impact on Newton Youth on and off the court. 

 

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.
