Doc Wayne Youth Attend Junior Celtics Clinic

27 Jan

Saturday was an exciting day for many Doc Wayne Chalk Talk participants! Thirteen youth from the Tierney Learning Center at The Homes at Old Colony in South Boston had an opportunity to improve their basketball and leadership skills by participating in the Junior Celtics Program—a community outreach initiative presented by New England Baptist Hospital in partnership with the Boston Celtics. Rookie guard Phil Pressey led a skills training session and shared powerful words about hard work, positivity, and motivation. Even Lucky, the Celtics mascot, lent a helping hand by encouraging Doc Wayne’s youth to “Play to the Whistle” (a Doc Wayne curriculum skill) throughout practice. We’re looking forward to tracking the athletic and leadership development of Chalk Talk members participating in the Junior Celtics program over the next four weeks!
