About Us

The Central Mass Swarm is an Elite program in New England that offers AAU teams to boys and girls from grades 3 through 12 under the direction of Mike Byrnes. We offer three levels of teams; Elite, Regional, and local teams.

The Swarm name is becoming a major brand when it comes to New England Basketball. We pride ourselves on skill development and helping players reach their ultimate potential. We are partnered with 1 Stop Basketball which is a full time training program which offers individual and group basketball training and conditioning training. 

The Swarm is an official partner of the Jr. NBA Program!

We have put together a top notch coaching staff. Many of our coaches have playing and or coaching experience at the college level. We also have a handful of coaches who are currently on high school varsity coaching staffs in the Central Mass and CT area.

Mission Statement

Our program aims to teach players the game of basketball through fundamental skills.  In addition to teaching fundamental skills, we will guide our players to reach their highest potential as an individual player as well as a teammate.  Players will understand terms such as respect, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and commitment.  In the end, it’s our hope that each player will get maximum growth as a player and a person; and additionally, grow to love this great game of basketball.

Founded in 2008, the Swarm now has a large alumni of players who are now playing at prep schools and colleges all around the New England area. Our program is in place to serve basketball players all over this area, from teaching them basic skills in 3rd grade to making calls to college coaches for them as high school players.
