It seems you have a tendancy to not read all of my posts. I said that I am in no place to predict who does what so i named 12 players that would make the team a formidable team.
I'm sure you did not intend to miss this key detail of my post.

you also stated that you are not sure who is playing where, i was just confirming that those players are most likely playing drive. I saw what you wrote I was just confirming.

I don't think that Athelite is at the same level as Basketball Bc and drive, yet. I just think that those are the two major programs, and Athelite is still just one step behind, but they are growing and have the potential to be a top program.

I think Athelite is on the right track, much like 3D they're focussed on developing the kids in their system, they don't try to get all the top kids to play for their program, they're more than willing to work and develop with who they have, they don't try to poach kids from other programs to join theirs...

Anyone know who the coaches are for the BC U17 team?

Barnaby Craddock is the head coach. Not sure who the assistants are this year.

An all star game consisting of Drive vs BBC wouldnt be a bad idea..they could make it a weekend event with games between U14-U17 teams (boys and girls) ..this could be one way to end the debates yearly

A better idea would be to hold a jamboree with all regional teams and club teams and then hand pick the best players to represent our province from all teams there...don't see that happening or any all-star game between bbc and clubs. Seems to be a line drawn and no one is willing to cross or help create a unified front. Kind of sad really.

Below is a post I wrote in the Junior section that also applies here in the BC Senior Provincial Team topic. Apologies if you have read it already.....


Ok, so assume you are a young player trying to decide where to play basketball this spring/summer and which team to tryout for.....

You can tryout for a club team or for Basketball BC zone team. So what do they offer.....?

If you go to the website for most club teams, they list detailed training schedules (days of the week, hours etc), gym locations and tournaments schedules (as many at 12 tournaments throughout Canada and the US) from now through the entire spring and summer.

On the other hand, the Basketball BC website is vague on exactly what kind and amount of training players will receive if they make one of the zone teams or the provincial team. The training and competition schedule is general, with the big prize for zone teams being the BC Provincial Championship Tournament and, of course, the National Championship for the provincial teams. Those are big prizes, and it is an honour to represent your province, but what is the training and who are the coaches? I understand it is difficult to put all of this together because the coaches and gyms change, but the information is insufficient to make a decision that effectively eliminates a player from playing for a club team.

Clubs have tryouts too and they cannot allow players to come in-and-out of the program pushing other kids farther down the bench (nor can Basketball BC do this). There are some excellent club teams out there, especially at the U15 and U14 level, so offering top-rate competition is not an advantage for BBC. At this age group, kids (and parents) have had limited contact with BBC while they have often been playing for years with their club teams and have developed longstanding friendships with other players and coaches. Kids and parents are loyal to these people.

Basketball BC has some advantages too. There is the prestige of representing your province and BBC often has excellent coaching and quality competition. Despite this, if I were advising a young player on what to do, I would want to know exactly what is being offered before making any kind of commitment. They are being asked to leave their teammates, friends and coaches....it is not surprising they often choose to stay with the club team.

If Basketball BC wants to attract the best kids it cannot rely on prestige alone. It must offer an equal or better experience. But how can it do that when kids are chosen from all over the province and simply cannot live close to the training facility all summer long. It might work at the zone level, but can it really work at the provincial level? I don’t think so.

So why not deal with the reality that there are excellent clubs and training opportunities outside BBC and make it work in their favour?

What about focussing BBC resources on, say, a two-week all-day intensive training camp for the top players selected from all clubs. This could be done just prior to the National Championships to allow time for team training. They could provide resources for zones where clubs do not exist and offer a provincial championship focussed on club teams and certain zones. This would allow clubs to offer all-spring/summer training and competition at a very high level, while enabling the top-players to come together for an intensive camp focussing on winning the National Championships.

Seems like a winning combination to me.

Who won when the provincial team and drive A team met up a tournament last year? Did they ever even play?

The only game I am aware of is the U16 team playing the Drive U 17 team with a few U16's. That was last summer in Seattle. BC U16 team won easily I think it was a mixed Drive A & B players. The teams are often at the same tournaments, but rarely meet up. Drive usually puts its teams in a youngerbracket or in the silver division. Basketball BC competes against the Gold division teams and when they play Drive it is against older players.

Basketball BC put their U16's in the U17 Gold bracket and got murdered every game while the Drive U16's stayed in the U16 Platinum bracket and made it to the finals.
