    Centre for Performance

    What is CP?

    Centre for Performance (CP) is a nationally established program designed to develop athletes for the purpose of competing at the international basketball level. The program revolves around the “hot house” approach which focuses on athletes in the key years of their development.
    The emphasis of CP is to train skills that athletes do not otherwise have the opportunity to develop. CP is not based on a competition model; rather it is a group of athletes training in pods across Ontario for the common goal of getting better.

    Athletes that have been in CP in previous years include:
    Boys
    Julian Clarke – 2010 Junior National Team
    Kevin Pangos – 2009 & 2010 Cadet National Team
    Negus Webster-Chan – 2009 & 2010 Cadet National Team
    Anthony Bennett – 2009 & 2010 Cadet National Team
    Duane Notice – 2009 & 2010 Cadet National Team

    Changes for the 2010-2011 Program
    At the conclusion of the 2009-2010 Centre for Performance (CP) program Canada Basketball announced they will officially be releasing control of CP to the individual Provinces and Territories. With this change Ontario Basketball will optimize CP to best fit the needs of Ontario athletes.
    One of the concerns with CP in the past has been scheduling that conflicts with high school and club basketball. Now that Ontario Basketball has control over the program, CP can be used to complement athletes’ development through focused skill development.
    Changes have been made to the CP program to offer improved access to development opportunities with increased consideration of timing, travel and financial issues.
    CP changes for 2010-2011:
    · CP pod work will be available in at least seven areas in Ontario
    o This first year of expansion will see boys CP pods in Toronto, Peel Region, York Region, Kitchener-Waterloo, London, Hamilton and Ottawa. Girls pods will expand to Toronto, York Region, Kitchener-Waterloo, Hamilton, Hagersville, St. Clair Region and London.

    Tryouts for CP will take place within these pods in early September. Training will begin soon after with upwards of 12-15 athletes in each pod depending on the region.


    · CP Centralized sessions will occur in December (boys)/January (Girls) and March
    o These centralized sessions will be hosted later into the CP session than before to allow more teaching to happen in pods. This will provide the top athletes in the province with a greater opportunity for competition.

    Of the 80 to 120 athletes training in pods per gender in Ontario, approximately 40 will be selected to participate in the centralized sessions.


    · A two tier cost will now be applied to CP
    o Athletes selected into CP will be charged $300.00 and will receive all the pod training in their local pod as well as a Nike reversible jersey.


    The 40 athletes selected into the centralized sessions will be charged an additional $100.00 and will receive a pair of Nike shoes as well as the two centralized sessions. Selection of athletes for centralized sessions will be based on a number of factors within pod training.


    · Consistent curriculum taught across Ontario
    o The CP curriculum is focussed around filling the current gaps that are commonly found in athletes’ skills. By filling these skill gaps, CP athletes will have the tools to succeed at a higher level within their high school and club systems, as well as have the opportunity to transfer those skills to a provincial or national team.

    Frequently Asked Questions:
    1. What age athletes is CP for?
    Answer: There can be slight variations on the ages from year to year including how many athletes from each birth year are selected. Typically athletes are in grade nine through twelve with a few exceptional grade eight athletes.


    2. What if I am talented but cannot afford CP?
    Answer: Ontario Basketball is a not for profit organization and runs its programming on a break even or revenue generating budget however we will not turn away athletes who deserve to be in the program but cannot afford it. We will work with the family to devise a payment plan or assist in securing sponsors.
