U16 Basketball U

[fusion_text]The Brockville Basketball U 16 Summer team began training on May 17 and brought together players from Cornwall, Brockville, Kingston, Smiths Falls, Carleton Place and Perth. We practiced once a week for three hours and what began as collection of diverse talent became a strong cohesive unit that worked as well together as any team I have coached in all my years of coaching, finishing the season with a 25-5 record.
It was my intention to get this group to share the ball, and they really became an exceptional passing team. This fostered an unselfish mindset that allowed us to compete and beat more athletic and talented teams. The team became very close and there will be friendships made in the last two months that will last a long time. In the end, working well together, learning to cooperate and play this wonderful game in a fashion that promotes unselfishness is what it is all about.[/fusion_text]
