Canada's largest basketball coaches clinic wrapped up on Saturday at the University of Winnipeg Duckworth Centre with a total of 330 basketball coaches attending over the 2 days.  Congratulations to Krishna Armogan (pictured to the left with Canada Basketball's Mike MacKay) from Andrew Mynarski School for winning the coaches trip to Las Vegas next May!  Peter Robertson-Stovel from Riverview Community Centre took home the Team Prize pack (pictured below) which included a set of Wilson basketballs, Wesmen and Bison season passes, Basketball Manitoba shirts, coaching resources and more. 

Presenting at this year's clinic were headliners Brian McCormick of Albuquerque, New Mexico and Mike MacKay of Canada Basketball. Joining Brian and Mike were local university coaches Kirby Schepp, Mike Raimbault and Michele Hynes along with Basketball Manitoba's Dan Becker and Randy Kusano, MABO's Martha Bradbury and product demonstrations from Krossover Video and Jon Giesbrecht with EAT Battle Pads.

All sessions were video recorded and will be made available exclusively to all clinic attendees in the next 10 days. The videos will then be made public to all in the New Year.  The clinic attendees will be receiving an email in the next 10 days on where the clinic videos and other documents can be accessed.

This weekend also saw the Playmaker & 180 Shooter Basketball Camps hosted by Brian McCormick to nearly over 50 local players at St John's Ravenscourt School.

Members of the Manitoba Centre for Performance Program were on hand both days of the Super Coaches Clinic as on court demonstrators who did a fantastic job working with the presenters and Basketball Manitoba would like to thank all program members!

A bonus clinic was offered for the coaches in the new Jr NBA program on Saturday night from Swan River and Winkler, Manitoba.  Chris Alicpala from NBA Canada hosted a 2 hour clinic and was able to bring the REAL NBA Larry O'Brien Trophy from San Antonio with him!

Basketball Manitoba would like to thank all clinic attendees for being with us all weekend and we hope you are able to take a number of new ideas back to your programs this season!

Full information on the clinic can be found at  We will be back in October 2015 at the University of Manitoba!
