Welcome to the TAA!

Welcome to the Tewksbury Athletic Association's Web Site!

The mission of the Tewksbury Athletics Association is to promote sportsmanship, fair play, team play, proper exercise technique, sports safety, development of skills, discipline, self-esteem, cooperation, commitment, and making an effort. In TAA programs, while winning shall not be considered unimportant, it shall not supersede the striving to win within the boundaries of the rules and the ethics of sportsmanship in a fair competition of ability, effort and strategy. Therefore, the TAA shall not stress victory as the ultimate goal.

2014 Basketball Award Announced
Jul 03 2014

This past week the 2014 Willis Reed Leadership Award was presented to 8th grader Ryan Morash, by Basketball Program Director, Chris Licata.

Ryan played 5 years of Tewksbury travel basketball. During those 5 years, Ryan never missed a game and was part of the 6th grade team that won the Garden State league and the 7th grade team that won the annual Readington Holiday Tournament. During the 8th grade season, the team compiled a 12-1 regular season record before losing in the playoff semifinal.

THE WILLIS REED LEADERSHIP AWARD

This award is presented annually to the 8th grade basketball player who has displayed outstanding leadership throughout his or her Tewksbury basketball career. On court play, leadership, courage, teamwork, sportsmanship and respect for the game, referees and opponents will all be determining factors in who is selected.

The selection process will be collaboration and input from all Tewksbury travel coaches, referees and other players. There can be more than 1 recipient of the award each year.

A plaque and gift certificate will be presented to the recipient.

Willis Reed was the total embodiment of leadership and courage throughout his basketball career. Reed is an NBA Hall of Fame member and led his team to 2 NBA Championships in 1970 and 1973. In one of the most famous moments in NBA history, Reed limped onto the Madison Square Garden court to play game 7 of the NBA Finals in 1970 against Wilt Chamberlain and the Los Angeles Lakers. This type of leadership, courage, selflessness and dedication to teamwork is what Tewksbury basketball aspires to teach.

Are you volunteering 5, 10, 20+ hours with the TAA?
Mar 09 2012

Many companies offer a volunteer matching-gift program to recognize the contribution of time their employees make to their communities. Depending on the program, companies will match service hours volunteered by the employee through monetary donations.

Based on all of our volunteers, and the endless hours they spend in support of our programs, this is an excellent opportunity for the TAA to raise additional funds to help support our capital expenses and lower our program costs. It will also help our volunteers meet their companies' program goals.

Please take the time to search your company's Web site for program information. Program Directors will verify your volunteer time and provide a formal letter of recognition from the TAA for your records and to submit to your company.

The TAA is a non-profit organization and relies on our many volunteers, sponsorships and donations for our programs to be successful. Please contact your Program Director if you have any questions or would like a recognition letter in support of your volunteer time to submit to your company.

TAA Garbage Policy

Township Parking Rules
Nov 10 2010

Please adhere to the township’s parking rules while visiting the fields.

At Tewksbury Elementary School, please park in the lower lot. The upper lot is reserved for handicap and emergency parking only.

At Christie Hoffman Farm, park vehicles on the grass to the left of the road only. The grass to the right of the road as you drive up to the fields is used by a local farmer and parking cars there will ruin his hay crop.

Positive Coaching Alliance
Nov 10 2010

What is the Positive Coaching Alliance or PCA?

The TAA has partnered with the PCA to develop Double Goal Coaches, Second Goal Parents, and Triple Impact Competitors.

First and foremost, PCA stresses the importance of coaching and playing to win, however, looks to replace the “win at all cost” mentality with the more important ambition of teaching life lessons through youth sport experiences. Our actions as coaches, parents and TAA Board Members impact the environment of Tewksbury’s youth sports programs, and we all bear the responsibility of ensuring that our actions support the positive experience that we all want to provide for our kids.

Bottom line: We want to create a culture where kids love to play the game; they look forward to practices and games as times when they will have fun while learning and competing.

Through a series of upcoming mandatory seminars for coaches and parents, PCA and TAA will be presenting real life opportunities to bring this ambitious agenda to fruition in order to strengthen the already solid cultural foundation that has been established by past and present TAA volunteers. Our alliance with PCA and the mandatory seminars will reinforce, develop and sustain the culture of TAA in order to create the best overall competitive sports experience for our children.
