Thirteen teams representing the Central Alberta Basketball Club (CABC) competed in the recent “Swoosh All In One” tournament in Olds.
“This is the first time that basketball between Calgary and Edmonton has been represented through one cohesive community program, ever,” CABC President Ken King said in a release.
Seven of those thirteen teams placed in the top three in their respective divisions, with multiple teams taking home hardware, including gold for the U17 Red Deer Boys.
“Proving that being competitive and individual development can come hand in hand by focusing on the fundamentals, good attitudes, discipline, and maintaining a growth mindset,” King noted. “All thirteen teams represented the sport extremely well in their first weekend of competition for this season.”
The Red Deer-based Central Alberta Basketball Club development club has teams training in Red Deer, Olds, Didsbury, and Carstairs, training at Olds College as well as Lindsay Thurber, Didsbury, and Hugh Sutherland high schools.
CABC features players from Rocky Mountain House, Lacombe, Eckville, Red Deer, Olds, Disbury, Sundre, Carstairs, Three Hills, Innisfail, Didsbury, and other local communities.
“The club runs on a vision of being provincially competitive, while producing high quality athletes and leaders in our communities,” says King. “The club has grown, in one year, from 35 girls and 3 teams in Red Deer, to over 150 athletes across Central Alberta, coached by high quality coaches with post-secondary experience as players and/or coaches.”
