Westford’s 4-on-4 Summer League was founded in 1993 by legendary Westford Academy Boys Varsity Coach Ed Scollan to help foster and develop individual skills. Currently, this program is run by Westford Varsity Boys’ Head Coach Christopher Bramanti with the help of local high school students.

The premise of the league is that with only four players on the court at a time, each player will be more involved and active in the game. Each player will learn more individual basketball moves, will learn to move without the ball, cut, set screens, shoot, rebound, and play individual and team defense – all without having to worry about following additional instructions from a coach. Games are refereed by local high school students, which allows these local youths in the area to give back to the community.

No parents, adults, or older siblings are allowed to coach or sit/stand by the team bench. The players coach themselves. Through this, they learn to truly be a part of a team, make basketball decisions as a group, take responsibility for their play and their teammates’ play, and learn how to make mistakes and recover from them as individuals and as a team.
