The Providence Boys’ Basketball coaching staff, led by Coach Ryan Miller and Coach Lance Stemler, would like to invite deanery boys, K-8, to participate in the PHS Basketball Academy.
Your kids play a vital role in the future of the basketball program and the coaching staff looks forward to building relationships with each of them and following their successes in the coming years. We want your kids to be a part of our program!
The “Why” of the PHS Academy Program:
The Academy will focus on Team Building areas such as Attitude, Teamwork, and Communication, as well as, Skill Development in areas of Ball Handling, Shooting, Movement / Cutting, and Footwork, among other fundamental aspects of the game.
This gives the boys an opportunity to begin playing basketball with other deanery players to build relationships in a competitive, but fun-filled environment.
