"Serving Youth In the Philadelphia Area For Over 20 Years"
Mt Airy Church of God in Christ Basketball Program
is a year around endeavor to provide a structured, discipline-oriented approach to youth athletics in the Northwest section of Philadelphia. The theme of the program is “Purpose Driven Basketball”, an ideal realized by each volunteer working in the program. We are certain that, if we can continue to offer our communities’ youth a safe, structured recreational outlet, the benefits of such a partnership will pay great dividends in the years to come and help to stabilize the community we serve. Members of the program range in ages between five and sixteen and are partnered with qualified coaches and mentors who teach basketball and the life skills that correlate to the different facets of the game.
FUTURE PHENOM PEE WEE PROGRAM
Future Phenom is a developmental program for youth between the ages of 5 and 8 yrs old. The Spring session runs from March thru May for 8 weeks and October thru December for 8 weeks. Youth are taught fundamentals of offense and defense including ball handling, shooting and game situations. The youth are phased in to playing a simulated game. Experienced coaches work with the youth of this fun program that meets on Saturday mornings from 9:30 am and at 10:45 am.
PEACE ON THE STREETS SUMMER LEAGUE
Peace on The Streets Basketball League begins with an optional mini-clinic in June and youth are placed on to teams which play twice a week. There is a 10 to 13 year old bracket which plays on Monday evenings and Saturday mornings. There is also a 14 to 16 year old age bracket that has teams which play on Thursday evenings and Saturday afternoons. Each team/player plays twice a week for a total of 10 games. There is an All-Star game and contests for each age group and a single-elimination playoff. Play ends in early August.
MT AIRY COGIC TRAVEL TEAMS
Mt Airy Travel teams play competitively in tournaments and leagues from October through April each year with teams for youth between the ages of 8 and 14. There is a team for most ages (ie 8 yr old team, 10 yr old team, etc). Youth must be able to commit to extensive travel in the tri-state area and regularly scheduled practices to participate in this highly competitive program. Coaches in this segment of the Mt Airy basketball program are very experienced and have coached at high levels for numerous years.
