About “Tradition” & “Pride” Programs
The Tradition (Boys) & Pride (Girls) programs were established in 1996 by the Somerville High School Basketball Staff, Somerville Parks & Recreation Department, parents, and other members of the community with the hope of providing a basketball program to meet the needs and desires of the diverse Somerville community. There was an apparent need in the city to create a quality program that would give boys in grades 4 thru 8, an
opportunity to develop their basketball skills in a competitive, but enjoyable way.
Teams were created for each grade level for the purpose of developing the following: leadership, sportsmanship, teamwork, and basketball fundamentals. Each travel team competes in the Metrowest Youth Travel Basketball League with the primary goal of developing young males through healthy competition. Each team member must
reside in the City of Somerville to participate.
The Somerville Tradition & Pride programs want all players, parents, volunteer coaches, referees, and staff to respect the game of basketball and to carry themselves in a respectful manner at all practices and games.
Sportsmanship should be carried out at its highest degree. It is the hope that all players involved come out of this experience as improved young adults and citizens, not just improved basketball players.
