"I want to thank Coach K for organizing this camp. My son is 10 year old, very shy and he takes time to open up.  But he loved your camp!  I wanted him to be able to participate when his friends are playing basketball and now he can.  He learned so much and has more confidence."

Acton-Boxborough Boys Varsity Head Coach Rick Kilpatrick established the “Colonial Hoop Clinics” in 1998.  In 2018 it became Elevation Basketball Academy.  Various year round programs are offered to give players an opportunity to GET BETTER, HAVE FUN AND LEARN THE GAME!  Programs include:
  • Youth Summer League (co-ed / two age divisions / Grades 4-9 / just completed its 20th year)
  • Four weeks of Summer Camp thru Acton-Boxboro Community Education
  • Fall Skills Academy sessions
  • Fall Tournament Tour
  • The Fab-50 Basketball Camp at Nashoba Brooks
  • Columbus, Veteran's and MLK Holiday events
  • February Vacation "Winter Break Blast"
  • Spring Skills Academy session
  • April Vacation Clinic
The goals of all Elevation Basketball programs are that regardless of the starting point (or ability level) of any participating player, they improve their knowledge, understanding, and abilities of the game while also having FUN!  While the programs are offered out of Acton and Concord, they are open to players from any community and for both boys and girls.  Past players have come from communities including Maynard, Littleton, Stow, Bolton, Harvard, Westford, Sudbury, Stoneham, Dover and Chelmsford.
