2022 SUPER COACHES CLINIC PRESENTERS


CHRIS OLIVER - FOUNDER, BASKETBALL IMMERSION

Chris Oliver is the founder of Basketball Immersion, The Basketball Podcast and Immersion Videos.

As an expert in basketball decision training, he coaches, trains, and mentors coaches to maximize their players’ potential and enjoyment of practices and games. What he is most passionate about in his work is sharing evidence-based coaching ideas that can stimulate your coaching to get better results. The goal is to improve your players’ retention and transfer the things you teach to their performance. You can learn more about concepts like messy learning, constraints-based coaching, maximizing active learning time, adding decision-making to drills, and much more in the numerous blogs he shares at Basketball Immersion Blogs.

After coaching for over 23 years, completing his Master’s degree, and travelling the world to watch NCAA, NBA and Pro teams from around the world, Chris saw the need for more education on a games approach to coaching basketball and training methods to support this. He created Basketball Decision Training (BDT) to bridge the gap between skill development and game applications of those skills. 

Most recently Chris was head coach at the University of Windsor where he won over 300 games, and compiled a .750 winning percentage. Oliver also coached a Canadian team of professional players to the prestigious Jones Cup international basketball tournament championship, winning gold in 2018. In addition, he has consulted for NBA, NCAA, high school and club basketball organizations around the world.

Chris also shares his games approach to coaching, practical evidence-based drills and decision training concepts openly through in-person and online learning. All of these concepts have been taught globally through online sharing, camps, clinics, private mentoring and consulting with individual coaching and teams’ staff. 







KIRBY SCHEPP - UNIVERSITY OF MANITOBA MEN'S BASKETBALL COACH

Bisons men's basketball head coach Kirby Schepp has coached more than 50 different teams over the past 27 years and 19 at the U SPORTS level (14 as head coach). 

Under Schepp, the Bisons have made the post-season in eight of the last 11 seasons, including six years in a row (2014-15, 2015-16, 2016-17, 2017-18, 2018-19, 2019-20). He's also led Manitoba to three Canada West Final Four appearances, including back-to-back in 2016 and 2017, along with 2020. In 2017, Schepp's squad earned the right to compete for the national championship for the first time since 1986 (counting regional championship), and three years later, he manned a Bisons squad that finished 16-4, the best regular season result in program history. 
 
Coach Schepp has been a part of the Canadian Men's National Team Program for over a decade. In 2009, Schepp was named to the staff of the inaugural Canadian Cadet (17U) National Team. He has been a coach of numerous medal-winning teams at FIBA events, including a bronze medal at the 2010 World 17U Championships and a gold medal with the Junior National Team at the 2017 World Championships. He was also the head coach for Canada's U16 national team in 2019, where the squad qualified for the FIBU U17 World Cup after a first-place finish in group B of the FIBA U16 Americas. Additionally, in 2018, Schepp led Canada to a historic silver medal at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in his international head coaching debut.  The medal was Canada's first in men's basketball at the games. 

Schepp has coached several future NBA players while with Canada Basketball including Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, Nik Staukas, and Dillon Brooks

A graduate of the University of Winnipeg and the University of Victoria and former U SPORTS player, Schepp coached successful high school and club teams for over 15 years and served as an assistant at the University of Winnipeg for five years. He led his high school teams to numerous Final Four appearances over 14 years. He also coached many provincial teams and elite club-level programs to successful finishes nationally.

Coach Schepp earned his B.A. and B.Ed from the University of Winnipeg and a Master's Degree (Coaching) from the University of Victoria. Schepp is an NCCP Master Learning facilitator and has trained hundreds of coaches over the past 20 years.  He just returned from Egypt, where he worked with the Egyptian national team development program in the summer of 2022.

MICHELE SUNG, UNIVERSITY OF MANITOBA WOMEN'S BASKETBALL COACH

Michele Sung (nee Hynes) enters her 9th year as head coach of the Bison women's basketball team in 2022-23. It hasn't taken Sung long to turn the Bisons into a championship contender. Five years ago, the squad made the playoffs for the first time since 2009, and they repeated that feat again in 2018, as well as 2019.

Under Sung's watch, veteran guard Taylor Randall was named a conference all-star for three straight seasons (2017-19), while rookie guard Lauren Bartlett and fourth-year forward Addison Martin also took home hardware following the 2019-20 campaign. Barlett was named to the All-Rookie team, while Martin was the recipient of the Tracy MacLeod Award, which celebrates courage in overcoming adversity. She also became the first player in team history to receive such an honour. 

A product of Millgrove, Ontario -- a hotbed for women's basketball in Canada -- Sung attended St. Mary High School, which is widely known as a basketball factory. After a successful career at St. Mary, Sung chose the U of M for her post-secondary basketball career in 2006.

Sung played five years with the Bisons, completing her university basketball career in 2010 while also obtaining a Bachelor of Kinesiology degree. During her time with the team, she racked up an impressive resume. She was an Academic All-Canadian as a freshman in 2006-07, as well as team captain for three consecutive seasons, beginning in 2007-08. One of her biggest accomplishments as a Bison occurred following the 2009-10 season when she received the Sylvia Sweeney Award – presented to a player who demonstrates outstanding achievement in basketball, academics, and community involvement. 

Sung's head coach while with the Bisons, Pam Danis, also helped to instill a passion for community outreach within the team. Danis was just starting her work with Aboriginal communities at the time of Sung's commitment and the squad would have several team events at Skownan First Nation, with Sung helping as a mentor coach during her entire Bisons tenure. 

After playing as a Bison, Sung spent a year with ZKK Partizan Basketball Club in Belgrade, Serbia, but was drawn back to the U of M because she wanted to finish her second degree (in engineering). It was during this time that several coaching opportunities were presented to her in the province. One of Sung's earliest coaching opportunities was with the U17 female provincial team, where she was an apprentice coach for two years under former Bison women's basketball head coach and U of M Athletic Director Coleen Dufresne, as well as Don Thomson. The 2013 edition of the provincial team won bronze at the Canada Summer Games. 

Sung also added national team experience to her resume shortly afterwards, becoming an assistant coach with Team Canada's Paralympic Basketball Team and a performance analyst with Team Canada's Development Team. She was also named to the U17 women's national team representing Canada at the FIBA World Championships in 2016.

In addition to Jon's coaching experience, Jon has worked as a video editor with the Canadian National Team, Draft Express (ESPN), and Bball Breakdown.







GIL CHEUNG, BRANDON UNIVERSITY MEN'S BASKETBALL COACH

Head Coach Gil Cheung is a former Bobcat who led the team to two National Championship finals as team captain, a former Academic All-Canadian, and a former assistant coach for both the Men’s and Women’s Basketball teams.

  • I think that the majority of the clinic was fantastic and that it was well put together. I definitely learned a TON of stuff which I will try to incorporate into the upcoming season and try to keep as a coach for future teams as well.
  • I thought this clinic was an excellent opportunity to improve my understanding of the game and advance my abilities as a coach. There were so many drills and ideas that would be useful teaching points at practice that I don't think I will be able to stuff them all into this season, however I will try.
  • Overall a FANTASTIC 2 days!!  I am a beginning coach (1 spring season experience 8-year-old boys - now coaching winter) and even the higher level clinics had something I could take from it. Great presenters, great location, great snacks and lunches and VALUABLE information! Well done!
