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.

  • 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

  • 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

JUNE 2019
  • Split Second introduces new branding
  • Cobra high school boys and girls go to Gonzaga team camps

  • 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

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

  • 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!


To 17 year old Eric

Congratulations! Today is the start of your senior year of high school basketball. I’m writing you from a few decades future (27 years to be precise), and while I don’t want to ruin all the surprises coming for you, I’d like put a few things in perspective to help you on your way.

Being your senior year, you are going to feel a pressure that comes from thinking this might be the end of your basketball journey. It turns out that this is just the beginning…but you probably wouldn’t even believe me if I told you what comes later, so I won’t go into that.

Tortoise and the Hare

Look at the big picture

The story of the Tortoise and the Hare originated 2500 years ago but is even more relevant in today’s age of instant gratification than it was when first written. With Google, cell phones, movies, email and Twitter (to name just a few), we are surrounded by cultural forces that condition us to expect nearly instantaneously results.

Although we live in the world of the Hare, when it comes to developing good athletes, we need to start channeling the Tortoise.
