The Brooks boys basketball team is one of the most consistently successful programs in the ISL and in New England Class B. For more than 30 years, the Brooks boys basketball team has competed in the Independent School League and played against many of the top teams in New England. The team plays 24 regular season games a year and practices daily at our state-of-the-art campus athletic center.

Our first team plays in the 16-school ISL, which annually produces some of the top talent and high school teams in New England. Brooks has finished in the top two of the league in each of the last eight years and has gone undefeated in the league over the past three seasons. The ISL sends multiple players to the highest levels of Division I basketball every year. Recent Brooks basketball players are currently playing at the NCAA Division I, II, and III levels as they use their basketball ability to access an outstanding education. At Brooks, we believe you can be an outstanding citizen, an excellent student AND an excellent basketball player.

The team’s success has been based around intelligent play, hard-nosed defense, and a passion for the game of basketball. The team values character and sportsmanship. Over the course of the past decade, the Brooks team has been chosen for the ISL team sportsmanship award four times. The boys basketball program consists of three teams, each of which competes in a complete and competitive schedule. Teams are created based on skill, with the lower levels acting as a feeder system within the program.

Brooks is an ideal spot for someone who is passionate about the game of basketball, serious about his studies, invested in his community, and committed to the team motto: “Play hard, play smart, play together, and have fun!”
