    275 Coaches Attend Basketball Manitoba Super Coaches Clinic & Better Basketball Camp

    Canada's largest basketball coaches clinic wrapped up on Saturday at the University of Winnipeg Duckworth Centre with a total of 275 basketball coaches attending over the 2 days.  Congratulations to Rodelyn Aaron of Amber Trails School (pictured above with Canada Basketball's Mike MacKay) for winning the coaches trip to Las Vegas next spring!  DJ Dupasquier from Sturgeon Heights Collegiate took home the Team Prize pack (pictured to the right with Coach MacKay) 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 Rick Torbett of Altanta, Georgia and Mike MacKay of Canada Basketball. Joining Rick and Mike were local university coaches Kirby Schepp, Mike Raimbault, Jon Giesbrecht and Brock Lemon along with Basketball Manitoba's Dan Becker.


    Coach Rick Torbett
    All sessions with exception to Rick Torbett's 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 on how to access the videos in the next 10 days on where the clinic videos and other documents can be accessed.

    This weekend also saw the Better Basketball Camps hosted by Rick Torbett to 30 local players at Glenlawn Collegiate and Lavalee School.  Thank you to Bryan Kornberger for the support of the Better Basketball Camp.
