Future Celtics presented by NEBH
The Future Celtics program presented by New England Baptist Hospital challenges over 600 3rd-5th graders to develop their basketball game through skills, drills and leadership training.
Kids from local YMCA's, Boston Centers for Youth and Families, Special Olympics and the Doc Wayne program participate in "clinic events" where they are coached through workouts by members of the Celtics roster. Participants are then tasked with improving in those Celtics-approved drills for a chance to come to a Celtics game as a Future Celtics All-Star.
A smaller subset of youth are nominated by their coaches as "Captains" and are given the opportunity to shoot a Future Celtics “skills video” to be featured on Celtics.com. Captains are recognized on-court at a Celtics game with the Future Celtics Leadership Award.
