D-League Wrap Up 2015
March 10, 2015 - It was a fun and furious Championship Weekend as we wrapped up Development and House League for the season.
The Gold Medal winners from this weekend were:
- Novice Boys – Clippers - Congratulations to coach Krishna and his players
- Atom Boys – Magic - Congratulations to coach Chris and his players
- Bantam Boys – Suns - Congratulations to coach Corey and his players
- Bantam Girls – Sparks - Congratulations to coach Terry and his players
Congratulations to all teams for participating and playing hard.
There were some very close games and there were some not so close. I hope all the players, coaches and parents enjoyed the thrill of the season and the excitement of the games.
And overall I hope that you enjoyed the program and saw some progress in the player’s skill development.
But mostly I hope the players enjoyed their time learning different drills, skills and development as they work on improving week after week. I hope the made new friends with team mates and understood the meaning of a good sport and a being part of a team. I hope they had as much fun learning as I had teaching.
It was also our first year running Jr. NBA. I hope that the parents and kids enjoyed the program. It appears to have been a great success and we look forward to working with the NBA next year and running the program again as well as continuing to develop and grow the program.
Thank you to the Coaches for all the work they did during the House League.
Thanks to Robin, Dave, Doug, Mike, and Don for helping with the Development coaching in Jr NBA and D-League.
Thank you to the Conveners for all their hard work in helping the kids each week.
Thank you to the parents for bringing out the players week after week.
And thank you to the players for listening, working so hard, and playing the game as best as they could. I did see a lot of happy faces and some many a tired and sweaty one. But that comes with the territory of games. I hope the experience of both being on the winning side and the losing side will make them the better player, sport, team mate, friend and person.
Thank you all again for another great year. I hope to see most of you again in September. Keep an eye on the website for camp information, Kingston Impact updates and registration.
It is often said do what you love and you will never work a day in your life. That describes my D-League Saturdays.
Take care and enjoy your Spring and Summer.
