MAVERICK BROADEN YOUR HORIZON BACK FOR 4TH SUMMER

2019 / 03 / 02

  Broaden Your Horizons Advanced Skill Development 2019

We are excited to announce that we have intention to run a 4th summer of BYH. Feedback with regards to the program over the previous three summers has been very positive as is indicated in some of the testimonials below. Another indication of its success, it has run at capacity each summer.

Based on overwhelming positive response in the previous three summers by both parent and athlete, we have decided to continue with the program this summer. Below are but a few testimonials from previous participants and parents.

“Cost was great.  I have to say that there's more expensive camps out there and they’re not any better than this camp.  This was great value!!”

“The coaching staff were very focused on the improvement of all the players, which helped all those who came show noticeable improvements. The coaching staff was great.”

“The girls were very fortunate to have such high level and variety of coaching for this program.”

“Coaches were always ready and positive regarding athlete development. I was really impressed by the coaching staff.”

“Dedicated and well organized!”

“It met our expectations and our daughter was also very satisfied. The coaches were very dedicated and engaged. We truly appreciate your time and effort put in to the program.”

“I think that the girls were very fortunate to have HP coaches running the session and maybe seeing their skills sets for the first time. Also having the assistants that were once athletes in the program that have since moved on to higher level of playing was very inspirational for some of the girls!”

The “BROADEN Your HORIZON” skills development sessions will provide an opportunity for athletes to work on specific skills over an extended period of time. An environment that promotes intensity, purpose and volume contacts combined with low athlete-coach ratio and ongoing instruction. Elements will be delivered in a whole training concept to allow flow between elements and increase game sense. Focus will be on specific weaknesses of athletes as well giving them an opportunity to expand their individual skill set and “Broaden their Horizon”.

Who?

Broaden Your Horizons is geared to female athletes, specifically those who will be looking to continue in our High Performance or Pre-High Performance stream in September. To enhance the program quality, participation numbers will be limited and based on size of venue, 3 courts vs 2 courts and number of coaches. In 2018 we were able to maintain a 6:1 ratio athletes to coaches.         

The program targets birth years 2006 – 2002.

Birth years 2006: Spots will be available for those indicating an interest in trying out for our pre-hp program in the fall and based on recommendations from coaches.

Those athletes currently in our 14U-17U competitive stream will be considered on recommendations of coaches.   

*Limited space will be available to keep instructor to athlete ratio low. We reserve the right to limit our registration and make selections based on a best fit for our program.                                                                              

When/Where?

Intention is to run the Program in the evenings from July 2nd to August 22nd, 8 weeks total. Previously the program ran out of Franco-Cité as well CC Mer Bleue. Location is still to be determined and will be communicated as soon as we receive confirmation from the school Board.

Previously the program was offered 4 nights a week, Monday through Thursday with registration option to select 3 days of the 4. The reason for the evening program was to avoid conflict with our day camps, Competitive Beach and Strength and Conditioning.

NEW THIS SUMMER!

In an effort to better align the athlete skill level we will be running separate sessions for the older or more advanced athletes from the younger athletes. This will provide an environment that will better align the athletes and enable them to keep purpose and tempo higher.

Again, the program will run Monday through Thursday. Basic number of sessions will be twice a week for each age group. Depending on gym availability a 3rd session could be added for those who are interested at additional cost.

 

Coaches

Program Lead will be John Spack, 28 years coaching experience with all age groups and current Maverick High Performance Coach and Christian Tanguay, 16 years coaching experience and 10 years with the Mavericks in their HP Program.

Coaches as in the past will include current Maverick High Performance Coaches as well current and former USport/CCAA/NCAA athletes. Athlete-Coach ratio will be approximately 6:1.

Cost

We attempt to keep cost as low as possible but still maintain the highest possible standard for the program. Final cost can only be determined once venues and coaches are confirmed. Previous cost was $400 - 440 plus HST.

Registration/Application

We hope to open registration by Mid-March. More info will be made available as program details and venues are confirmed. Please keep checking our Maverick Home Page for updates as well our Maverick Instagram Page.
