Claude Pritchard, 3Point’s Director of Basketball Operations, has been a fixture in Boston’s basketball community. Claude, who was immensely talented as a player, has developed and trained NBA, college and high school players. More importantly, Claude has dedicated his life to helping under-served youth in Boston through basketball. Athough Claude avoids any self- promotion, our experience has been that Claude has either played with or coached almost everyone involved in a meaningful way in basketball in Boston.

We have been fortunate to have had Claude involved with 3Point’s basketball program since its inception. Claude stepped up to his current leadership role in 3Point two years ago. Claude goes out of his way to emphasize to our students that 3Point is not a “basketball program,” but uses basketball to teach critical life lessons. Claude is enormously respected by the youth with whom he works, and he does not limit himself to helping young people during the times our program is held at a school.

At the Sarah Greenwood School, the administration has come to rely on Claude as a resource to meet with troubled youth individually outside of his 3Point hours. In an unusual testament to Caude’s work with it’s students, Sarah Greenwood featured Claude in an April school newsletter to the Sarah Greenwood community.
