Player Development and Training

A major mandate of our program is player development. This will continue through several instructors including Steve Maga and J.R. Galarza. Other instructors including Mihai Raducanu and hometown OCAA coaching success story, Brian Jonker, will continue to partner with our organization to provide access to training opportunities right here in Brantford. These opportunities allow our young players to develop, refine and hone their skills.

Through these individuals we will again offer the following:

  • Introduction to Basketball – Steve Maga is back to offer three one-hour skill sessions for every age of house league during the season. His sessions will occur throughout the season focusing in on various skills to develop players.
  • Elite Training – Elite training opportunities will be offered again throughout the season via a six week program. Further details regarding the next edition of this program will be outlined in the New Year so stay tuned for details.
  • Basic Skills Development and Individual Training – Boys registered with Brantford Boys CYO Basketball will have an opportunity to attend camps conducted by Maga Basketball in Ancaster,  during the summer months and March break at discounted rates. CYO players will also have access to Maga Basketball and Elite Performance (Raducanu) to assist them in improving in a certain area or help them develop customized programs and discounted rates.
