About Nets Youth Sports

It is hard to overstate the benefits young people experience through their participation in organized athletics. The participation level in competitive organizations, like Nets Youth Sports, has risen dramatically as parents have recognized the positive influence that team sports have had on their children. Parents are enrolling their children at earlier ages in organized programs with outside coaching; this has significantly raised the level of play across all age brackets. Whether or not you agree with the trend of starting kids younger, two things are clear:

1. Participation in team sports is starting earlier and requires greater commitment today than in previous generations.

2. It is very difficult to make an organized sports team, at any level, without having had the benefit of programs with outside coaching.

The Nets Youth Sports club program is targeted to help young players learn the game and develop team skills. Their experience will benefit not just their basketball careers but activities and passions beyond sports.

As a parent, you should consider the following items before enrolling your children for the Nets Youth Sports competitive basketball program:

1. Nets Youth Sports teams require greater parent commitments of time and money than a community recreation program. Teams practice from two to four times per week and play in a number of tournaments throughout the area. Parents need to honestly evaluate whether they are in a position to fulfill their responsibilities before allowing their young athlete to join a team.

2. Competition is significant both internally for spots on rosters and for starting positions.

3. Practices are well organized events that at times are both intense physically and mentally for young players. Players who take spots on rosters are expected to prioritize their commitment to their teams – attending practices on time and coming ready to play.

4. Displays of poor sportsmanship from players or their parents may result in termination from the club. When a decision is made to terminate a player it cannot be appealed.

HISTORY OF NETS YOUTH SPORTS

Nets Youth sports is a multi-sports youth organization that ironically started with a basketball team named the Sixers in 2003. The Sixers participated in the Detroit Recreation department’s Jr. House League at Adams Butzel Recreation Complex. That team consisted of 14 players and qualified for the Recreation Department’s City-Wide basketball Tournament that season. The next season the team name was changed to the Nets and a pee-wee team was added.

Because of the successes of the program that season, the Nets expanded to Soccer and Played in Adams Butzel spring soccer program. After dabbling in soccer, the Nets program expanded even more so that the Adams Butzel Summer basketball league hosted the Nets teams from ages 6-15. That ensuing fall, the 10U and 12U competed in the Williams Recreation Center’s Halloween tournament.

With an ample number of players and added experience, the nets took the show city wide. We joined Detroit’s Police Athletic League in the 12U and 14U age groups that following winter, while the pee-wee and Junior teams again participated in the Detroit Recreation Department’s basketball league and qualified for the annual city wide tournament. After yet another strong summer season, the Nets ventured into the winter season looking to capture the organization’s first championship. The Nets had teams in the Pee-wee, Juniors/10U and 12U age groups, for that winter season with the pee-wee winning the organization’s first championship. To commemorate the feat, the Nets held its first Banquet, issuing trophies to all players and coaches and serving numerous friends, family and fans.

Now established as a bonafide youth organization the Nets boast many achievements such as Cheerleading, a web site and e-mail address, numerous championships and our biggest achievement to date, two consecutive years participation in the NAYS National Basketball Tournament in Bolingbrook, IL.

Because of the hard work and tireless dedication of our phenomenal team of coaches and volunteers, the Nets Youth Sports Organization has provided many youth the opportunity to experience life changing experiences. From skating parties to basketball games at the Palace of Auburn Hills, the Nets have become a beaming light amidst the dark cold of urban living. What started a s house team in a local community center has turned into a regional human service agency helping to turn America’s youth into future heroes.

As we continue to serve, we invite all who share our commitment to excellence, to join us in making our community as strong, healthy and vibrant. Our work is still unfinished.
