    Taneesha Greaves
    Program Director/Head Coach
    Hometown: Winnipeg, MB

    Taneesha Greaves, Director and Head Coach of the AthELITEs and Beyond basketball program, is a former NCAA Division 1 student-athlete (University of South Dakota). Currently, Greaves is a Coach for the 15u Centre for Performance and 8-9 Girls Roblin Park CC basketball teams. This past summer, Greaves was also an Assistant Coach for Manitoba’s 16U Girl’s Provincial Basketball team, where they won silver at the Western Canadian Championships in Fort McMurray, Alberta.
    Prior to her coaching career, Greaves played two years of high school basketball at Glenlawn Collegiate, where she was announced one of Winnipeg's Top 10 Basketball players, held an alternate player position on the Canadian Cadette Women's National team, and achieved a First-Team All Star award at the Canadian National Championships.

    Following her two years at Glenlawn, Greaves transferred to the National Basketball Powerhouse, Oak Hill Academy, in Virginia, USA. While at Oak Hill Academy, Taneesha was ranked as a top 100 female basketball player in a pair of scouting publications in the United States and was presented with the Coach’s Award. After her successes in high school basketball in both Canada and the USA, she then went to play Division 1 at the University of South Dakota. Unfortunately, not long after Greaves began her college career, repetitive injuries led her to mandatory cessation of such strenuous activities. Despite this, Taneesha is honoured to finally be able to influence and be influenced by Winnipeg’s younger generation of athletes.

    Malik Irwin
    Assistant Coach
    Hometown: Toronto, Ontario

    Malik Irwin of the University of Manitoba Men’s Basketball team (CIS), is currently a third year Finance Major and elite performance. Along with assisting in the development of AthELITEs and Beyond’s Camp curricula, this past summer Malik co-directed his own camp for youth boys, the Hustle & Heart Camp, as well as instructed in many Junior Bison Boys Camps.

    Prior to becoming a CIS athlete and high performance coach, Malik had an exceptional career of four years under the well respected Coach Jeff Laping, at local powerhouse St Paul's High School. As a decorated athlete, Malik earned the entitlement of being a provincial all-star and received All-Manitoban team honours. Irwin was also placed on Winnipeg’s Top 10 Player
    list and again honours as an all-star upon graduation.  An outstanding athlete at St Paul's, Malik also paid his dues as an active member of Manitoba’s 17U Provincial Basketball team for two summers. As a starter, Irwin led the 2011 Canadian National Championships in assists and steals, contributing to Manitoba’s first ever silver medal at the time.
