Split Second Basketball is teaming up with the City of Delta this fall to run a skills development program out of the South Delta Recreation Centre in Tsawwassen.
The Split Second Train and Play Program is for boys and girls ages 10-to-17 and features weekly two hour sessions to work on all aspects of the game including shooting, rim finishes, passing, ball handling and footwork. Those skills will be incorporated into 3-on-3 league play.
The program will run on consecutive Fridays, from Sept. 24 to Nov. 12, leading up to the school season at all age levels. Starting time will depend on the age group. Registration can be done through the city’s deltareg.ca website, using the barcode 515458 to find the program.
Split Second is a basketball training organization started in Vancouver in 2010 by former university and professional player Eric Butler. He, along with Navi Sekhon, also oversee the Delta School District Basketball Academy out the Richmond Olympic Oval, which has been put on pause during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our aim is to provide a professional, consistent, high quality skills training option to prepare players to play on their school and South Delta Steve Nash League teams,” said Butler.
