    The same Blues team had an aau tryout back in March with Coach Sergey Kalnish..He took about 30 guys for the 93-94 age group & the majority of these guys weren't even at the tryout. Then told them to pay a 100$ to pay for the workout fees, he kept cancelling practices, therefor they only had about 2-4 practices that whole month. Then lied to them about getting them into tournaments, a week after he cancelled the boys' syracuse tournament, he cancelled the team and kept their 100$

    This is a totally different group of coaches. All four of them have been with Blues for several years.

    Scarborough Blues are one of the most reputable organizations in the Province. Our earlier attempt at establishing an AAU program may not have played out as successfully as we may have hoped but it was certainly not a "scam".

    Ted Ferreira is one of the most respected coaches in the entire OBA. He has worked selflessly for more than twenty years to help the youth of this Province.

    Mladen Sevaljevic has already taken teams to AAU tournaments and had some good success. We are trying to build on that success and expand on what he has already established. He has also medalled at the Provincial Championships on several occasions. That team would provide a core of players for our AAU program.

    I have discussed this matter with a number of people in the organization and if you have any concerns with this or any other of our programs please feel free to contact our president Sam Moncada.

    He will be happy to answer any and all questions and address any concerns you may have.

    He can be reached at: sam.moncada1@sympatico.ca
