As most have probably heard by now, BNB has decided that they will be sending teams to the U15 National Championships. Personally I’m very pleased as I feel this is one of the best development opportunities for players and coaches in this province not to mention being the single biggest incentive for getting players to participate in the program. On a related note, the coaches for the BNB Summer team should be decided sometime this week.
We have also resumed our CP training sessions. We trained at Crandall University last Sunday and will be at KVHS this Sunday (March 28). We’ll finish up the season with a 3-day training camp in Moncton the weekend of April 9-11. This year Canada Basketball is sending Kirby Schepp, assistant coach of the men’s U17 team that will be participating in the FIBA U17 World Championships this summer.
I had the pleasure of meeting Kirby at the CP Head Coaches meeting this past fall. The players will enjoy meeting him and the coaches, myself included, will benefit from the passion he brings to the court.
