Registration open for Peabody Basketball School

This summer the Peabody Basketball School will operate its annual program in two separate weeks. The week-long program provides instruction for youth basketball players of all skill levels, and offers offensive and defensive instruction, as well as five-on-five games and competitions. The school teaches skills and drills that players can use on their own, and it provides a fun and exciting experience. The school also stresses fundamentals and shows players how to improve their game.

The school is run by Peabody High School varsity head coach Thad Broughton, and the staff consists of coaches and players from the high school. To sign up, please contact the Peabody Recreation Department as soon as possible as space is limited.

The programs take place at Higgins Middle School in the weeks of July 10-14 and July 31-August 4. The sessions are from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday-Friday. People can sign up for one or both weeks. The participation ages are boys entering 3rd grade to 9th grade.

The cost is $125 per week. To register, contact the Recreation Department (Ann Gray) online at, by phone at 978-536-7130 or in person at 50 Farm Ave.
