SUCCESS IS MEASURED IN INSTANTS
Split Second Basketball is REAL basketball, and boy, do we need it. In our present culture which focuses on the spectacular aspects of individual athleticism, Eric and Joey are all about how to learn to play this wonderful game well together with your teammates.
These guys understand how players can grow as individuals and also they will teach your son or daughter how they must and can fit in with their teammates. Both guys have wealth of experience as players at very high levels and yet, as master teachers they realize that talent is God given, but skill can be taught and developed.
As teachers, both are knowledgeable and focused leaders and will help your child grow while enjoying the all round experience of learning to cooperate in a competitive environment.
My teams at University of Victoria played against Joey Vickery when he competed for Brandon University, and I had the great pleasure of coaching him when he played for Canada’s National Team. Joey was a great competitor, a great teammate and highly skilled. He also had a great understanding of the game.
His teammates loved to play with him. He was and is a man of high character, and was always a team leader.
Joey has now turned his attention to teaching others how to play the game of basketball. He understands the laws of learning and imparts his knowledge and expertise to young athletes who benefit greatly from their experiences with him. They will have fun and will grow as players, and as people, under the leadership of Joey and Split Second Basketball.
In my 30 years of coaching, Joey Vickery from the neck up, was the most cerebral player I’ve ever coached.
If you ever get a chance to be coached by Joey, you’ve been coached by one of the most enthusiastic and talented players that ever played for me. Developing your skills and learning the game of basketball from Joey is a no miss opportunity. Parents will enjoy the very positive basketball learning experience that their children receive from Joey Vickery.
I have known Eric for the better part of 2 decades. Eric, always a serious student of the game, has become one of the best coaches of technical skills in our region.
He has developed a unique program that is unlike anything else available in BC for youth basketball training. Because of his strong connections in the basketball community, Eric has always had first rate coaches in his program. With the addition of Joey Vickery, a legend in Canadian basketball, this program is a tremendous opportunity for local youth to learn to play the game the right way.
