Basketball is proud to announce that they are teaming
with NBA shooting coach Dave Love to offer shooting
clinics for young area basketball players. Coach Love is
the shooting coach for the Orlando Magic and has worked
with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Oklahoma City Thunder and
Phoenix Suns in the NBA. In addition, he was the
University of Calgary shooting coach for 9 seasons.
Coach Love has worked with several NBA players including
Canadians Tristan Thompson and Anthony Bennett, and
Aaron Gordon and Louis Amundson. In these clinics
players will learn what each part of their body should
be doing, but also why they should be doing it. They
will learn how positive power affects their shot and
some drills that Coach Love does with NBA players to
develop solid mechanics. This clinic is for all
basketball players ages 11 and older, boys and girls.
Space is limited. Sign up today. If you are a coach that
would like to volunteer to help at the clinic please
contact Coach Love at email@example.com

POWER U16 BOYS BORN 1999
Houseleague Season is now officially underway!!
We are now officially
into our houseleague season as the grade 10-12 boys
played their first games over the weekend. All of the
placement sessions were also completed and the coaches
have selected teams and will be contacting all players
and parents to advise them of their Tuesday or Wednesday
night practice session. Games will also start this
weekend so be sure you know your team name to ensure you
show up at the same time.
We are having our best
year ever with over 380 kids registered into our
program. With this many players comes an increased
number of teams so it is very important that you show up
to practices and more importantly games 15 minutes early
to be sure that the games all start on time. In order to
fit all the games in we have to ensure that they all
start on time.
Finally if you cannot
make a practice or game please have the courtesy to
contact your coach and advise him that you will not be
there. Coaches are expecting that you will show up for
all games and practices but if that is not possible due
to sickness, vacation, dreaded HOMEWORK or whatever
please take the time to call and advise him or her of
your situation. Also game schedules are posted on the
HOUSELEAGUE page in pdf form and you can download and
print them off for reference. These will also be updated
every week so be sure to review it often for any
schedule time or location changes. We try to notify
everyone ahead of time but if you are not part of our
Facebook group or signed up for our email group you may
not receive this information.
We are looking forward
to having another FANTASTIC year and we will see you on
2014 HOOP DREAMS SUMMER OUTDOOR BASKETBALL PROGRAM
are now officially half way through our 2014 summer Hoop
Dream program!! In our 4th year we are very excited to
have expanded the program from 2 divisions to 5
divisions. This year we have over 100 kids registered in
the program with boys and girls able to play on their
own courts. The program runs every Wednesday night from
5:30 - 9:30 pm at the outdoor basketball courts behind
the Peterborough Public Library. The program provides an
opportunity for all those registered to improve their
basketball skills and also have a fun scrimmage followed
by refreshing popsicles to reward them for their great
efforts! Recently CHEX TV attended one of these sessions
and created a short news clip that was aired locally.
You can find a link to this video below. This program
would not be as successful and enjoyable without the
efforts of Robyn Bax and the many parent, community and
student volunteers who help out every single week.
Thanks to all our great volunteers!!!
Congratulations to our 2014
PYBA Scholarship winners.
