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.

Winter Basketball League Levels:
The Development League will focus on players learning the basic fundamentals of the game. There will be a skills and drills segment along with team building practice sessions. The season ends with Playoffs amongst all teams. All games will be played on Saturdays between 10am-12pm. Games will begin the season with a 3v3 format to teach spacing and get players acclimated with the court. Over the course of the season, teams will work their way up towards a normal 5v5 format.
The foundation of the Premier League is built on players beginning to learn more advanced concepts of the game. Skills will begin to improve across the board and communication on and off the court will be stressed more than ever. All games will be played on Saturdays from 12pm-2pm. The season will end with playoffs amongst all teams. Games will be played 5 on 5.
The Junior League is designed to help players prepare for a higher level of competition. We will introduce team concepts such as zone defense, team defense, motion offense and proper floor spacing. All games will be played on Fridays from 6pm-8pm. This league will focus on creating a winning environment. Holding players accountable will be at a league high. Missing games or practices without giving notice to coaches may lead to less playing time. Will play a regular 5v5 format.
