I want to see if I can. I want to find out. I’m going to do what I always do: I’m going to break it down to it’s smallest form, smallest detail, and go after it.

“They care about me, Mom”. Words my son repeated when I asked him if he wanted to stick with Mass Commanders after his first season. He felt and believed he was integral and essential not only to his team, but the club as a whole. These words speak volumes and are a testament to the commitment of Coach and Founder Rudy Crichlow and Coach Markus Potyranski. Zach received personal attention from the coaches multiple times per week. He met and played with teammates from all across the Commonwealth. As a parent, I admire Coach Rudy not only for his basketball acumen, but for his insistence on developing young men as a whole and demonstrating what they need to be successful adults on and off the court.
Our son has been working with MassCommanders for almost two years, and we have found them to be very professional and approachable. Rudy is dedicated to the development of their players and has a deep knowledge of the youth basketball program. He is such a talented trainer and impresses us by his ability to understand the players and to provide them with personalized feedback.
