To provide the opportunity for boys in the Deerfield community with a serious interest in basketball to participate in accelerated competition with accelerated guidance, in an effort to prepare them to be DHS basketball players. We are unique among feeder programs in that we include in our schedule games with teams in the City of Chicago and elsewhere, as well as participation in various competitive tournaments here and in Wisconsin.
Playing with this program helped my high school career and our Varsity team to win conference because of the chemistry our team had for 3 years in feeder. We became so close and by the time we were in high school, we all knew each other’s strengths and weaknesses. Nothing had to change. That would not have happened if we didn't all play in the Deerfield Young Warrior Program. Me and my friends all had great experiences with this program and still talk about the memories to this day.
The Deerfield Young Warriors program really helped develop me as a player and as a teammate at a young age. It’s a great first taste of what being on a high school team is like, as you get to play with kids from all of the Deerfield schools together. I’m extremely thankful for the experience that the Deerfield feeder program gave me and I hope it can continue to do the same for others.
Thanks for what you and your staff have done for both of our kids over the years. You guys have done a great job with the programs. I am sorry I couldn't give you guys a date for the clinic, my schedule became very hectic, maybe another time. Once again, THANKS.
