Basketball BC High Performance or Targeted Athlete Strategy is made up of 4 pillars or programs for athletes from Grade 7 to 12:
Athlete identification and selection is a collaborative process. The process includes input from Basketball BC’s Provincial Coach/Director of High Performance, the Assistant Manager of High Performance, selected provincial High Performance coaches and Canada Basketball staff.
The High Performance coaching and training staff consists of NCCP trained and certified coaches, certified athletic trainers, and Canada Basketball trained analysts. Support staff includes sport psychologists, who provide mental training techniques to athletes and support physiotherapists, who provide functional movement screening.
The goal of Basketball BC is to have a High Performance coaching pool with NCCP trained coaches for all the High Performance programs.
For the High Performance programs, Basketball BC provides support services in the areas of nutrition, speed & agility, strength training, mental training, movement & functional movement assessment, and injury treatment & prevention for identified performance level athletes.
High Performance Training (HPT) coaches work with each athlete to establish a personal training plan that focuses on tactics and skill training. Qualifying players and coaches within our HPT program are eligible for Canadian Sport Institute (CSI) and Pacific Sport carding and benefits.
