Boys 2 Men is a not-for-profit organization established in 2016. Their goal is to help prepare student athletes to become college athletes with a focus on time management, accountability, teamwork, responsibility, and community involvement.
Boys 2 Men is an Elite Long Island basketball program, formerly part of Open Season Youth Corp. Boys 2 Men is based out of Dix Hills New York. Our players come from all parts of Long Island. We play a national tournament schedule on the east and west coast. The main goal of our program is develop high school players and prepare them for the next level of basketball. Current and prospective participants will be required to turn in report cards and bi weekly progress reports and will be required to complete written and verbal assignments when traveling around the country prior to comprting. Participants must also perform community service such as park clean up projects, tutoring and mentoring of young athletes.
Providing high school athletes with the knowledge and skills to advance beyond the borders of the basketball court. Developing young men who will make a positive impact globally.
Our goal is to provide a platform for local youth to display their talents in front of college coaches on a national level. With the hopes of them obtaining a free college education through scholarships.
Our long term goal is to become one of New York’s most dominant AAU basketball programs. Not only on the court but in community involvement and college level player production.
Strengths and Weaknesses:
The program is operated by current college coaches with over 15 years of coaching experience at a high level. Over the years, they have made connections with college coaches all around the country at every divisional level. These coaches are confident when recruiting athletes that are to be nurtured in the Boys 2 men program.
Our challenge is a lack of financial support required to cover the associated travel costs to attend some of the nation’s premiere tournaments. Some of our players and their families simply don’t have the means to attend these events, which is a shame because every tournament is an opportunity for them to showcase their strengths as players and young men which could lead to a free education for them. And this is where we need your help.
