2019 YEAR IN REVIEW





Year In Review

Another year….wow, in fact another decade…done!

Dec 31st is a great time for all of us to look back and reflect on the year gone by and to appreciate all that has transpired. We hope you had a fantastic one that includes many great memories, including your playing, training and watching basketball. We’d like to share a few of ours with you.

One of the best parts of running Split Second Basketball is the number of great events we get to be part of. We were lucky enough to help more than 3,000 BC athletes grow as basketball players and young men and women in our camps, classes and leagues. Our Cobra teams had more than one thousand training sessions and played several hundred games.

You helped create far too many highlights to share them all…however here are a few of the ones that stood out to us.

JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2019
  • An incredibly successful inaugural elementary boys BCCBA season finished up with a Championship for the Cobra U12 boys
  • 4 Split Second Coaches were fortunate enough to lead teams to School League Championships
  • New Cobra uniforms arrive

MARCH/APRIL/MAY 2019
  • 5 players join us in LA over Spring Break for basketball training with Jordan Lawley
  • COBRA Community Day kicks off the season for 13 girls and boys teams ranging from U10-17

  • Split Second introduces new branding
  • Cobra high school boys and girls go to Gonzaga team camps

JULY/AUGUST 2019
  • Split Second runs a record number of summer camps
  • Cobra Spring season wraps up with some great tournament championships and one fun afternoon of basketball at Kits Beach
  • Split Second coaches help Ruth Hamblin prepare for WNBA tryout and Canadian National Team

SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2019
  • Split Second launches PEAK Basketball Training and Delta Basketball Academy at the Richmond Oval
  • Fall COBRA season begins
  • Thanksgiving Parent-Kid game

NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2019
  • Split Second Cobra U15 Boys win the Inaugural BCCBA High School League
  • COBRA elementary boys play at UBC T-Birds halftime
  • Split Second coaches get a short break in the snow at Silverstar to relax, have fun…and start planning an even better year to come!

There were many more amazing highlights in 2019, but that’s a quick taste of some of the best moments of the year. We want to thank you for being a part of 2019 at Split Second Basketball, whether it was as a Cobra team member, camp or skills program participant, league player, 3X3 tournament player…or all of the above!! 

We wish you all the best for 2020 and we wish you have an amazing year ahead. We hope to see you in the gym with us this coming year and look forward to many more milestones and incredible basketball in the next 12 months!

ALL THE BEST FOR A WONDERFUL 2020 FROM ERIC, LESLEY AND THE REST OF THE SPLIT SECOND TEAM

Perform at your best this season

, ,

Whether you love or detest the New England Patriots, you have to respect Tom Brady and the performance he put on in the AFC Championship game this past weekend at 41 years old. He’s performing at his peak in one of the most physically demanding sports at an age where the average athlete is a decade or more into retirement. Brady attributes a huge part of his success to his work on Active Recovery.

As you approach the most important and demanding part of your school basketball season, Active Recovery (AR) can be one of the best tools you have to get an edge over your competition.

However, I would like to point out a couple and express our gratitude for all of you who helped make it possible.

How to improve your ability to quickly read on-court situations

There have been some really interesting studies in the last few years that have examined what exactly is going in the brains of elite performers. What scientists have discovered can directly help you improve your basketball game.

In one of these experiments, pictures of various volleyball situations (I know…volleyball…but stick with me because the conclusion is what matters) were flashed from a projector onto a screen. The pictures showed real action shots of players on the court. In some of these pictures the volleyball was visible, while in others the ball had just left the frame and therefore didn’t show up in the photo.
