Being Our Best Programs
In preparation for the 2018 - 2020 Midget National Championships, the NLBA is continuing the "Being Our Best" program to prepare the athletes for these competitions. The program commences at the Developmental phase stage and then feeds into the High Performance phase.

Developmental Program: Grade 7 and 8 boys and girls

Coaches: Angela Torraville (Female) & Matt Bruce (Male)
This program will be conducted from October 2017 - March 2018. The developmental program will consist of a pool of 40+ players per gender who are selected through a tryout. There will be roughly 20 grade 7's and 20 grade 8's selected, TBD by the head coaches. Parents and athletes should be aware this is a "skills development program" which focuses on teaching proper basketball skills to assist the individual to perform on the court at a higher level in the future. This is not intended to be a game oriented program and there will be very few games.

Athletes selected to the program will receive a reversible jersey, an indoor Spalding 1000 basketball, a hoody and approximately 75 - 80 hours of training including a nutrition, injury prevention and mental training session. Players will be exposed to former provincial team athletes and coaches who will teach skills as guest instructors. The total cost of the program will be $600.00 (admin. fee included)

In April 2018, open tryouts will be held to select an U14 provincial team to attend an invitational event in Atlantic Canada. This is a separate program and costs for this are not included.

High Performance: Grade 9 boys and girls

Coaches: Doreen Pond (Female) & Steve Ryan (Male)
This program will be conducted from October 2017 - March 2018. Approximately 20 athletes will be selected to train to have the opportunity to compete at the Midget National Championships in 2018. Athletes selected to the programs will receive an indoor Spalding 1000 basketball, reversible jersey; a hoody and approximately 75 - 80 hours of training. Selected athletes will also start a comprehensive weight training program under the guidance of Jerome Brenan at the NLSC including a nutrition, injury prevention and mental training session. Players will be exposed to former provincial team athletes and coaches and a variety of guest instructors. There will be approximately 10 - 12 games played during this program. The total cost of the High Performance program will be $950.00 (admin. fee included).

In April, open tryouts will be held to select an U15 provincial team to attend the 2018 National Midget Championships. This is a separate program and costs for this are not included in the above fees.
