Girls' Fall Academy and Compete for Sep - Nov (2018)

The Jr. Heat Basketball Development Clinics are a great way train during the fall to assist players in their preparation for the upcoming school season and Jr. Heat spring club season.

[Update - registration for our fall academy now close date extended to September 9th]

These clinics will be run by UBC Okanagan Heat coaching staff, Jr Heat coaching staff, and UBCO athletes.

The sessions will focus on skill development and fundamentals, including shooting, ball handling and passing. They will also focus on basic offensive and defensive principles to give players a greater understanding of the game, using concepts that are taught at the U SPORT level.

There is also a compete day in addition to the Sunday academy. Players will be able to implement the fundamentals that they are learning in the skill sessions in a competitive game environment once a week.
