Canada's largest basketball coaches clinic wrapped up on Saturday at the University of Manitoba Investors Group Athletic Centre with a total of 235 basketball coaches attending over the 2 days.  Congratulations to Karl Schroeder of Miles Mac Collegiate (pictured above with coach Kirby Schepp) for winning the coaches trip to Las Vegas next spring!  Brad Loewen of Greendell Park Community Centre took home the Team Prize pack (pictured to the right with Coach Mike MacKay) which included a set of Wilson basketballs, Wesmen and Bison season passes, Basketball Manitoba shirts, coaching resources and more.  A bonus prize of a Dr. Dish iC3 shot trainer went home to Jason Johannson of Maples Community Centre.  

Presenting at this year's clinic were headliners Barry Hecker, a long time NBA Assistant Coach and Mike MacKay of Canada Basketball.  Joining them were local coaches Kirby Schepp, Tanya McKay, Mike Iwanchuk and athletic therapist Jeff Billeck.  Coaches Michele Sung (Hynes) and Sarah Lundgren hosted a special Women in Coaching session on Thursday night at the Canada Games Sport for Life Centre.  

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 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 Basketball Manitoba HP Camp hosted by Barry Hecker to 50 local players at the Canada Games Sport for Life Centre.  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!  Coaches Barry Hecker and Mike MacKay worked with all the Centre for Performance teams on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings as well at the CGC.  

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!
