Premier of Ontario - Première ministre de l’Ontario

March 22 – May 26, 2013

A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM THE PREMIER On behalf of the Government of Ontario, I am delighted to extend warm greetings to everyone attending and competing in the 2013 Ontario Cup Provincial Championships, organized by Ontario Basketball. Ontario enjoys a special connection to basketball, given that James Naismith, a native of Ontario, organized the first competitions. With the game coming to Canada as early as 1892, it can be safely said that it is a sport of enduring popularity — clearly demonstrated by the 2013 championships which are taking place 121 years later. I commend all the young athletes who are participating in these championships — your dedication and hard work have brought you to this exciting event. And to the parents and coaches: thank you for supporting these young people in their quest to excel in the sport they so obviously love. I wish to acknowledge Ontario Basketball for giving Ontario youth the opportunity to participate in organized basketball and for raising awareness of the positive role this sport can play in young lives — from building self-confidence to enhancing physical well-being. Please accept my best championship games.

Kathleen Wynne Premier

April 26-28, 2013 Dear Players, Coaches, Managers and Fans, On behalf the KW Lightning girls’ basketball association, it is our pleasure to welcome you to Kitchener-Waterloo and the 2013 U16 girls Ontario Cup provincial championships. The KW Lightning girls’ basketball association is a non-profit organization that was formed 17 years ago to create an opportunity for girls to learn and develop basketball skills. Last year over 200 players participated on KW Lightning teams. Many athletes from our organization have moved on to have successful basketball careers at universities in both Canada and the United States. More importantly, they have developed into outstanding young ladies that give back to the game and the community. To the players: Your hours of practice to refine your individual and team skills have earned you the right to represent your city, town, village or district in this provincial championship. Play hard, play well and most importantly, enjoy this special moment in your basketball career. To the coaches and managers: Without your investments of time, energy and passion, none of this would be possible. Thanks for everything that you do to teach the wonderful game of basketball to your athletes. To the parents and family members: Thank you for all of the sacrifices (the delayed and missed meals, the extra driving and the financial commitments etc.) you make to allow your daughters/granddaughters/sisters/nieces to be part of Ontario’s basketball family. To the fans: Enjoy the incredible competition that you will be witness to this weekend. These athletes are the best and most dedicated basketball players in Ontario. Cheer loudly for your team and demonstrate respect for officials and opponents. Best wishes to everyone involved for a most memorable 2013 U16 girls Ontario Cup! Yours in basketball, Allan Bush President KW Lightning Girls’ Basketball Association

FROM THE PLAYGROUND TO THE PODIUM, IT’S RESHAPING OUR GAME The international governing body for basketball (FIBA) has invested a tremendous amount of resources to fully develop the 3x3 game. FIBA introduced the 3x3, half-court version of basketball to a global audience at the 2010 Youth Olympics in Singapore, where it was regarded as the most popular sport throughout the Games. Last summer, Ontario Basketball (OBA) hosted one of three Canadian qualifiers for the 3x3 World Tour Championships. FIBA states that with more than 250 million players worldwide and among the most played recreational sports in the world, 3x3 will help the growth of basketball. Combine these initiatives with FIBA submitting an application for 3x3 to become an Olympic sport, and the once playground-only game is now becoming a world phenomenon. In addition to its high performance programming, FIBA, Canada Basketball and OBA have identified the significant impact the 3x3 game can have on skill development for active youth. There are tremendous benefits to having young children learn the game through 3x3 before being introduced to a full-court, five-on-five competition. BENEFIT 1: MORE TOUCHES In five-on-five games, one or two players can go an entire game rarely touching the ball. This especially happens in youth basketball where you have one or two dominant players who are by far the best ball handlers on the team. The team tends to get the ball into those players’ hands and those players tend to take the ball to the basket. The problem with this is that other players are not developing their skills when they don’t get to touch the ball, and the team isn’t developing as a whole.

Above: Eventual U13 Champions, SBA Blues taking on Kings Court at the inaugural OBA Challenge at Rexall Centre in July 2012.

In 3x3, it’s really difficult for two players to monopolize the ball and still play well. The third player gets involved almost by necessity. All players get to handle the ball and handle it a lot. This allows all players to develop their skills in live game play.

BENEFIT 2: MORE SPACING Even with the smaller bodies of young players, five-on-five games can be crowded affairs. Youth basketball isn’t the best time or place for a kid to learn to fight through double teams or pass into multiple coverage. 3x3 games loosen everything up and give young players more room to operate. This allows them to practice their basketball skills without overcrowding. Once the basic basketball skills of dribbling, passing, rebounding, shot selection, etc. are learned and mastered, then they can advance to learn to beat double teams and making passes into tight areas. BENEFIT 3: REMOVE PRESSES & ZONE DEFENCES 3x3 games remove the issue of presses and zone defences. They are strictly person-to-person. This again allows young players to learn and master the basics before moving on to more complex game play.

Above: KW Selects represented Toronto, Ontario at the FIBA 3x3 World Tour Masters Competition in New York City on August 18-19, 2012

There soon may be structured provincial and national teams for 3x3 competition. There are countless 3x3 adult leagues throughout the province. More importantly, OBA and its stakeholders must strategize the most effective way to implement the 3x3 game in youth basketball since it serves as the best way for our children to increase skill development, confidence, enjoyment and the desire to play the game for life. With editorial from Canada Basketball.


ONTARIO BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION AND AAU The basketball landscape in this province, and the country, has changed significantly over the past few years. While Ontario Basketball (OBA) attempts to provide services and programming to all elements of the game, it is through collaboration and the strength of its member clubs that the mission is delivered. These clubs also provide OBA with the necessary knowledge and trends in the game to help shape its direction. The origin of clubs in Ontario stemmed mostly to provide concentrated basketball programming that complemented the high school season. Clubs would run teams after OFSAA finished and everyone would take the summer off. A chosen few would make Team Ontario while the many enjoyed “summer sports,” while others enjoyed an "off season" of rest and recovery. Things have changed significantly over the past few years. Today, many clubs run for an entire 12-month period - the good ones, who understand periodization - also understand the significant importance of rest and recovery periods to create optimal performance. While the less informed clubs simply run summer teams that, at times, can fragment the existing club system and overuse the athletes. In this day and age, it seems the best recruiters win the best athletes instead of clubs that understand the long-term development of an athlete. We need to help OBA member clubs do both; provide a pathway for athletes to develop their skills through international competition and opportunities for exposure. As the governing body for the sport of basketball in Ontario, it is vital for OBA to strengthen and protect its clubs and at the same time, educate parents and coaches about all the stakeholders in the game. In a study taken during the 2012 OBA season, more than half of the responding clubs indicated at least one of its teams play summer ball. As a result, OBA developed a three-year partnership with the Amateur Athletic Union of the United States (AAU). Some OBA clubs with AAU experience understand the wide range of good and bad events that exist in the USA, no different than tournaments within Canada. This partnership will help teams who wish to travel with the education of recommended events. Through partnerships with InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) and AVIS-Budget car rental, the OBA is attempting to make summer travel easier for its members as well. The foundation of Ontario Basketball (OBA) remains its more than 200 member clubs that represent the game from Windsor to Ottawa; from Niagara to Thunder Bay; and everywhere in between. How, when, where and why they play the game is different than even just five years ago. The partnership with the AAU isn’t going to solve recruiting challenges or eliminate “rogue” clubs, but it will hopefully send the message that OBA recognizes it needs to address the challenges that face its member clubs and create a better environment for its members to flourish – whatever their basketball pathway might be.

When James Parker, AAU Director of Sport, attended the announcement last year in Toronto, he indicated that OBA should become the focal point of AAU in the province and can also see the association coordinate AAU events within Canada. Beginning at these 2013 Ontario Cup Provincial Championships, the winners of Division One in U13-17 age categories will automatically qualify for the AAU National Championships. Many of these championship events are staged at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Zone in Orlando, Florida. OBA will cover the registration fees while teams will be required to fundraise in order to have the necessary fees for travel and accommodations. Some have confused AAU Above: Toronto Triple Threat celebrate their Division One title at the 2012 with NCAA exposure. While there are events Ontario Cup Provincial Championships in Ottawa. that may generate significant recruiting opportunities with college coaches, as an executive from NCAA indicated to the OBA membership at the Annual Meeting of the Members last year, “if you are good enough, they will find you in Canada.” The AAU summer circuit, for the most part, is simply additional competition for players and coaches who wish to develop over the summer months. That being said, there are major events that demand significant exposure opportunities for athletes. There is no reason why Team Ontario or OBA clubs cannot experience this side to the game. It does not exist for a chosen few who claim to have all the answers. The opportunities are endless for Ontario athletes to pursue a high performance basketball pathway. With increased quality of programming on home soil, OUA, CIS, OCAA is now a viable option. For those wishing to pursue NCAA basketball, and many have with great success, there needs to be increased education on the road to college scholarships. Because for every Anthony Bennett, Natalie Achonwa, Kevin Pangos and Dakota Whyte (all OBA and Team Ontario alumni), there are thousands who do not have a positive experience and we are all collectively to blame.

Above: Oakville Vytis claim the U14 Major Bantam Division One Championship following a hard-fought win over Brantford CYO in our nation’s capital.

A partnership with the AAU and an education partnership with NCAA are two ways OBA is attempting to serve its members. There is a long way to go before a true balance of power exists, but with the collective approach of 200 member clubs, OBA will get there – one dribble at a time.

ONTARIO BASKETBALL LAUNCHES CLUB EXCELLENCE

Club Excellence is a program built to support any sport, is third party operated, using fair and transparent methods to deliver a national certification program. It was developed by a group of likeminded organizations (Gymnastics Canada, Swimming Canada, CanoeKayak Canada, Athletics Canada, and Speed Skating Canada) who came together around the development and delivery of a national, workshop-based program designed to help sport clubs provide quality programming and effective club management practices. The certification program recognizes clubs and associations that invest in building capacity to meet and exceed a basic set of operating principles. The six core areas of Club Excellence are program delivery, coaching, people management, governance, financial accountability, and marketing, recruitment and revenue generation. Great sport organizations are those that develop strategies on the field and off. Club Excellence can help. Best of all, your club or association will be recognized for the investment made in establishing policies and processes to meet your day-to-day challenges.

CLUB EXCELLENCE WORKSHOP McBain Community Centre 7150 Montrose Rd. Niagara Falls, ON L2H 3N3 Saturday, June 1st 2013 9:00am – 5:00pm $25.00 per participant (plus applicable tax) Maximum two participants per member club Includes coffee, lunch and materials REGISTER ONLINE http://clubexcellencensc2.eventbrite.ca (613) 521-3340 ext.3226

IS YOUR CLUB EXCELLENT? Participation in sport and recreation is more than just finding a club that wins a lot of basketball games. Throughout amateur sport in Canada, there exists an increased focus on accountability to parents and their children, risk management assessment, development programming, quality coaches and administrators, and fiscal transparency. It is for these reasons that Ontario Basketball (OBA) recently announced its partnership with the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport, True Sport Foundation and the Club Excellence Cooperative (CEC) to launch a basketball club excellence strategy throughout province. “We are proud of the more than 200 member clubs within Ontario Basketball that represent our sport in communities across Ontario. Most of these clubs are administered by dedicated local volunteers. The launch of Club Excellence will strengthen the capacity of our clubs and provide invaluable resources, enabling them to deliver the sport with excellence to the thousands of members who rely on our professionalism and quality standards,” said Ken Urbach, president, Ontario Basketball. “We share an incredible responsibility with our clubs to ensure our members enjoy a safe and rewarding basketball experience. OBA looks forward to working with the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport and continue to strengthen our existing member clubs.” OBA has joined leading national sport organizations in embracing the Club Excellence program which is helping to build a network of healthy, strong and sustainable sport clubs across Canada. As an Associate Member, OBA now enjoys access to a range of customized tools and resources to improve club programs. Targeted workshops will help member clubs become Club Excellence certified, building capacity in a number of critical areas including coaching, people management, governance, recruitment, financial accountability, marketing, and revenue generation. OBA will be working with its Regional Stakeholders Network and member clubs to identify the sport-specific categories required in addition to the Club Excellence mandated standards. The Club Excellence Cooperative (CEC) was created in 2007 with common goals to identify a stable and supportive environment for coaches, improve implementation of Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) at the community level, and ensure quality club programming. The Club Excellence program was then created to help build a network of healthy, strong and sustainable sport clubs and sport organizations, across Canada. Based on 30 standards, Club Excellence can help in building capacity within program delivery, coaching, people management, governance, financial accountability, and marketing, recruitment and revenue generation. Founding Members of the Club Excellence Cooperative (CEC) include Swimming Canada, Speedskating Canada, CanoeKayak Canada, Athletics Canada, Gymnastics Canada, and the True Sport Foundation. “OBA is the first major team sport organization to join Club Excellence. They clearly see the opportunity to apply the Club Excellence certification program to raise the quality of the sport at the grassroots level. We look forward to their contribution to our campaign to improve sport delivery at the local club level,” said John Edwards, Chair of Club Excellence Cooperative. Through the Associate Membership paid for by OBA, the Club Excellence program will be available to Ontario Basketball member clubs in good standing, focusing on all the characteristics of strong, sound clubs, from management to governance and program delivery. It will also allow OBA to provide discounts to their member clubs on Club Excellence services, and gives them a voice in the stewardship of this innovative, standards-based certification program. “Club Excellence represents a significant financial investment from OBA to its member clubs,” said Michael Cvitkovic, executive director, Ontario Basketball. “We believe this investment aligns our clubs more closely, provides strong risk management and continues our commitment to Canadian Sport for Life principles. OBA clubs are the foundation of our organization and so it is imperative that we provide them with the necessary resources to succeed. No matter where our parents and athletes live, they should expect the same services from their local clubs.” For more information, visit www.clubexcellence.com.

Quality sport and physical activity


WHY CAN’T WE? By: Michael T. Cvitkovic Most sports have recognized the issue. Children should not be playing an adult game. Baseball has had T-ball, Rookie Ball and other modified games for years. Soccer nets and fields are significantly smaller than professional standards all across the world. Tennis legend Roger Federer learned his craft with mini tennis - a smaller racquet, net and court with lighter tennis balls to encourage proper technique. We’ve all seen Sidney Crosby and those Timbit Hockey TV commercials. Yet a majority of our basketball youth can still be found attempting to shoot a NBA-sized ball on a 10-foot net from a 15-foot free throw line in full-court, five-on-five competition. It’s time we take a good look in the mirror. There is a large movement across the country called Canadian Sport for Life (CS4L) or the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model. It’s been around for years and Ontario Basketball (OBA) has taken some steps to properly adapt. OBA has strong alignment with CS4L in the Train to Train (Girls 11-15 years; Boys 12-16 years) stage with programs such as Talent Identification and Development Program (TIDP) and the successful Team Ontario Under 14, 15 and 17 teams, however there exists a tremendous gap in earlier stages such as FUNdamentals (Girls 6-8 years; Boys 6-9 years) and Learn to Train (Girls 8-11 years; Boys 9-12 years). Teaching children physical literacy and investing quality gym time to catch, throw, jump, pivot, and balance must be a priority. So is creating a fun, inclusive environment that promotes skill development before competition and recognizes the social, emotional and psychological growth of young people. More practices, less games. It’s scientifically proven that children will become attracted or disinterested in a particular sport by the age of 12. That puts a lot of pressure on early childhood sport development, volunteer coaches, clubs, officials and parents. It is vital that all support networks for children, especially parents, understand the significance of developing the athlete in the child before the basketball player. Over the course of the next few months, Ontario Basketball will be participating in an in-depth CS4L review of the programs and services it currently offers. With its Regional Stakeholders Network and other basketball experts, OBA will formulize a long-term strategic plan to chart how it should address existing gaps. This will include a complete competition review. Change is challenging, but when it comes to our kids, isn’t it worth it? It’s time for basketball to step up and lead again. Together, let’s enjoy this significant transformation. If other popular sports can properly adjust their programming to ensure children are receiving age, stage and skill appropriate development, why can’t we? To learn more, visit www.CS4L.ca. Cvitkovic is the executive director of Ontario Basketball, having previously held sports management positions with York University, the Toronto Raptors Basketball Club and Tennis Canada.


The Talent Identification and Development Program (TID) is a systematic revision of the Player Development Program (PDP) that provides a clear pathway for athletes and coaches in the high performance stream. The outcomes of this restructuring include a downward shift in the ages of athletes that OBA high performance programs target and better alignment with the appropriate age categories as per the principles of Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD). More athletes with high performance potential will be identified and provided the right training. Ontario Basketball is pleased to announce the dates and locations for the 2013 Talent Identification and Development Program as follows: Georgian College U12 Boys Centralized Camp: July 2 - 5 U12 Girls Centralized Camp: July 6 - 9 U14 Boys Centralized Camp: July 17 - 20 U14 Girls Centralized Camp: July 21 - 24 Abilities Centre / Durham College U16 Boys Centralized Camp: August 16 - 18 U16 Girls Centralized Camp: August 16 - 18 Georgian College U12 Identification Camp: August 21 - 23

TEAM ONTARIO ALUMNI DANIELLE BOIAGO CONTINUES HER SUCCESS AT MCMASTER UNIVERSITY Danielle Boiago is a shining example of how hard work and strong support and coaching from an Ontario Basketball Association (OBA) club program can help a player achieve success wherever they go, be it at a university down the road or on a court across the Atlantic. Boiago made a name for herself coming up through the Blessed Sacrament program, an OBA club in her native Hamilton. It was as a member of the Blessed Sacrament Yellow Jackets that Boiago got her first taste of basketball on the world stage. The talented guard with a nose for scoring was chosen to represent Team Hamilton at the 2009 International Children's Games in Athens, Greece. She starred for her squad in Greece, lifting the team to the gold medal. The summer of elite hoops continued for Boiago that same year. After returning from Greece, she joined a powerful Team Ontario and represented her province at the U15 National Championship in Kamloops, B.C. An impressive performance there allowed her star to shine a little brighter. She finished second in the tournament in scoring, averaging 13 points per game, and was named tournament most valuable player, while lifting Ontario to the national crown.

Not willing to settle for her success with Team Ontario U15, Boiago trained hard with her Blessed Sacrament teammates and coaches to earn a sport on Ontario's U17 entry to the national championship in each of the next two years. In her first year with Team Ontario U17 in 2010, Boiago's squad settled for silver but returned to the top of the podium in 2011. In 2012 Boiago competed for Blessed Sacrament once again, this time in the OBA-sanctioned JUEL , a league for the top U-19 female hoopsters in Ontario. Once again she was a star among stars in the JUEL circuit, being named the most valuable player of the league's all-star game. When Boiago announced she would play her university basketball with her hometown McMaster Marauders in 2012-13, the city of Hamilton was abuzz. And after having a phenomenal rookie campaign in Ontario University Athletics for the Marauders, where she led the OUA West in rookie scoring and finished eighth overall (15.3 PPG), Boiago was named the OUA West rookie of the year.

Her accomplishments and success at every level of her basketball career can be traced back to her time as a member of an Ontario Basketball Association club; Hamilton's Blessed Sacrament.
