Max's All Stars intends to relaunch our youth basketball program in 2023! We will start by hosting a few clinics in NYC (exact location TBD) led by our experienced coaches - Patrick James, Jason Lewis, and Corey Orgias. To learn more about the Max's All Stars Youth Basketball Program, please review the attached information packet.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The Max's All Stars Youth Basketball Program start date is currently TBD. However, please know we are using this time to plan our upcoming clinics and build the best possible youth program to serve our future participants. We can't wait to get back on the court!
Since October 2015, we have laid the foundation for the Max's All Stars Youth Basketball Program. This includes:
• A dedicated coaching staff that features former collegiate/professional basketball players who are now imparting their wisdom on a younger generation ✔
• Video footage of almost every workout/game that serves as a valuable learning resource for our participants, provides exposure for them and helps us promote the team ✔
• Max’s All Stars is well connected within the NYC basketball community allowing us to secure gym rentals in convenient locations, invite special guest coaches and join premier leagues/tournaments ✔
To learn more, please contact us.
Our goals for the future are to continue growing our youth basketball program. We intend to hosting clinics/workouts during the spring and possibly join leagues/tournaments in the summer. Our staff looks forward to building a strong youth basketball program that serves as a positive influence for our participants – on and off the court. We also intend to apply for USA Basketball certification, Jr. NBA status and/or become an official AAU team to further increase our presence and legitimize our youth basketball efforts. In addition, Max’s All Stars hopes to become a tax-exempt nonprofit organization under category 501(c)(3). This would provide a tax deduction for donors who make a charitable contribution.
