    Post by Coach Clement Fri May 13, 2011 2:25 pm

    It is with great pleasure that I announce that the Scarborough Basketball Association (Blues) will be launching its Official AAU Program. The first year will feature U15 and U16 male players and any other boys in the GTA who are interested the opportunity of trying out for its AAU Elite teams. This team will be under the leadership of an excellent group of experienced coaches - Jay McNeilly, Scott Waithe and Lorenzo Smithen. The head coach is Paul Weekes. The SBA Blues AAU program will feature several elements and components for education to life skills as well as intensive basketball training.

    Boys in the 9th (1996) and 10th (1995) school grades are invited to the tryouts next week. The dates, times and locations of the tryouts are:

    Tuesday, May 17, 2011 — at West Hill CI (Front Gym) 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm
    Wednesday, May 18, 2011 — at David and Mary Thomson CI (Back Gym) 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm
    Thursday, May 19, 2011 — at Woburn CI 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

    Registration at the three venues for all three tryouts is from 6:00 pm to 6:45 pm at the school gyms listed above. Please note that all participants are expected to attend all three tryouts that are listed.

    Fee: $10 (covers all three tryouts)

    Gym Locations:
    David and Mary Thomson CI — 2740 Lawrence Ave. East, Scarborough

    The SBA (Blues) AAU team will be attending three USA tournaments (Indiana, Myrtle Beach and Chicago) and the SBA Summer tournament during the summer. To prepare, the team will practise twice a week. The boys who are able to make this team must be dedicated and earnest in striving to be among the best basketball athletes in Ontario.
