Ready to Go

Welcome to my blog.

I don’t pretend to be a writer nor do I have any aspirations of a journalism career (I’ll leave that to my brother) but I decided to start this site so I can post information and share my thoughts on basketball happenings in and around the city of Saint John.

So here we go…

Word out of KVHS is that Bill Mayberry has been selected the new girl’s varsity coach. Bill has a very impressive basketball resume and a long history both as a player and as a coach in the Kennebecasis Valley. Bill’s previous coaching gigs range from mini girls to Summer Games and every level in between. Most recently Bill has been coaching the BNB Girls Under-15 Development team and served as assistant coach in the CP Atlantic program. Bill inherits a strong program. Not only has the girl’s JV program at KVHS won back-to-back provincial championships the last two seasons under the guidance of Kevin Laskey, but this summer there are eight KVHS girls on a BNB Provincial teams. Congratulations, Bill.

Speaking of coaching vacancies, UNBSJ is also in search of a new men’s head basketball coach. Former NBIAA coach of the year, Greg Doyle, has had to step down after one year at the helm due to personal commitments. Search is underway for a replacement.
