5 Boros Basketball was started in 2010 by Rick Atson with the idea of allowing kids from ages 8-18 to come to the program and learn the great game of basketball from the ground, up the correct way while not having to worry about the huge financial cost of competitive youth basketball.
5 Boros Basketball is one of NY only really free programs. We operate year round and we have open workouts for all ages several nights a week in various locations.
We also have various teams that we put in top local and out of State tournaments to compete against other top teams and programs.
Playing in top tournaments in the area and out of State gives the players a chance to gain exposure to top schools and coaches they may otherwise have not had the opportunity to.
Since we started the program we have had numerous players attend the top High Schools of their choice and some attending D1 Collegeson full scholarships.
Using basketball to obtain Academic success is one of our main goals.
5 Boros has had thousands of kids pass through our doors and hope to have thousands more. It is amazing to have former players come back to the program and talk to the kids about their experiences with us. It is awesome to see how many kids we have assisted in obtaining academic success.
5 Boros Basketball always growing and with so many youth looking to join the program every year we are always looking to add more coaches and volunteers to help allow them to do so.
If you are interested in joining the 5 Boros family please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
It is an amazing feeling knowing you helped someone.
