Coaching Youth Basketball: Tip, Drills, & Ideas

As a middle school teacher, high school basketball coach and local high school sports media professional I appreciate the value and connection between academics and athletics.
The two play such a large role in my life and I could not imagine one without the other.  Other than the obvious benefits that sports and athletics have on your body, they can also provide a great vehicle for students to further their education and remain focused on their studies.
Massachusetts Prep Stars,, is a high school website that serves as the face of New England Prep Stars Inc. focuses on profiling and advancing the interscholastic athlete through media exposure, events, teams and more.
The media plays such a large role in exposing kids to different schools and we have always been in the business of promoting hard-working kids who want to use athletics to further their education and extracurricular experiences.
For the chosen minority who can also benefit financially from playing sports in college it is even a larger focus. Colleges not only offer full athletic scholarships at the Division 1 and 2 levels but there is a lot of money available for students to take advantage of at all levels if they pursue the right avenues.
At Mass Prep Stars we focus on Massachusetts based high school student athletes but we also feature other New England Prep Stars, including public as well as prep and private school student athletes. We currently feature football, boys and girls basketball and boys lacrosse. Next year we plan on adding additional sports and we are always seeking talented and aspiring sports writers and interns to assist us.
As a high school athlete and parent of a student-athlete it is important to be your own salesperson and self-promoter. The first thing you should do is build your athlete profile at The athlete profile has a space for your bio information, a photo, video (if you have any uploaded to youtube or vimeo), and a place for related news articles, honors and awards. It collects all of your information so you can easily email your link to college coaches, family, friends etc.
If you are interested in being profiled on Mass Prep Stars please email or fill out your own profile request form on our website at
We are more than happy to assist you or direct you with anything you need relating to high school and college athletics.
