An Update on Boston Promise
by Steve Cassidy
Boston Promise experienced a remarkable first year on the court. Basketball (and academic) skill sessions were held at Basketball City twice a week from April through November. Through grueling sessions focused on fundamentals, players showed marked improvement in their games. On the weekends the program competed in tournaments both locally and regionally. The schedule included such challenging events as the Hoop Mountain Classic and the Gym Rat Challenge which brought in teams from all over the northeast. All the hard work paid off when Boston Promise earned its first tournament championship by capturing the Middlesex Magic Classic in October.
