The Centre for Performance Program (CP) is the second level of the Basketball BC High Performance Program and is part of Canada Basketball’s overall Targeted Athlete Strategy (TAS).
TAS is a national program that provides identified Canadian athletes with the individualized support that they need in their development to enhance what the team-based system already provides.
CP is based on a training model which targets high potential athletes and provides them with advanced level training and experiences to assist in elite level player development. The program is designed to teach the international (FIBA) game that includes both individual and team offensive and defensive skills and to learn various aspects of sports science that are necessary to become an elite basketball player.
CP is for athletes entering Grades 8-10 in the fall (ages 13-15 by the end of the year). Athletes are required to tryout, but an athlete may receive a direct invitation based on prior identification (Futures Program).
CP programming focuses on introducing athletes to the 4 pillars of Performance Training.
Program pillars are dedicated to improving athlete knowledge and performance in the following areas:
Basketball Skills – Emphasizing:
Global Basketball Skills Decision Making Dynamic Play
Physical Development – Focusing On:
Strength Agility Quickness Nutrition
Mental/Social/ Emotional Skills – Stressing:
Mental Skills Preparedness Teamwork Leadership Life skills
These areas have been highlighted by Basketball Canada as essential in the overall development of the athlete.
CP provides instruction in individual athlete training, small group training and team training.
Head Coach: Anthony Luyken
Assistant Coaches: TBA
This Fall, the Boys CP program will continue with the once a month training model introduced in 2021.
These weekends, while more intensive, will allow for better synergy with athletes participation in school and club training and competition, while also decreasing travel demands on players from outside the lower mainland. The programs will focus on high level skill and concept development while also introducing Canada Basketball national team program concepts and style of play. Additionally, players will be engaged in off court development through guest speakers/coaches and online team activities.
Head Coach: Graham Bonar (Southpointe)
