Being Our Best Programs
In preparation for the 2016-2018 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: Geoff Moore (Female) & Dave Banfield (Male)
This program will be conducted from October 2015 - March 2016. 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.
High Performance: Grade 9 boys and girls
Coaches: Judy Byrne (Female) & Glen Sooley (Male)
This program will be conducted from October 2015 - March 2016. Approximately 20 athletes will be selected to train to have the opportunity to compete at the Midget National Championships in 2016.
