Hurricane Basketball Academy Two New Programs
Team Hurricane Basketball Academy, announced two new programs for its 2014-2015 season. On the academic front, to ensure that scholar athletes develop academically and socially while honing their competitive skills in basketball, Team Hurricane Basketball Academy has launched the Students First Educational Program.
Team Hurricane’s Students First Educational Program is organized and overseen by Registered Psychologist, Dr. Mellisa Gibbons Tankard of HARTT Services and former Project Director of Higher Achievers Afterschool Program in Washington DC. “Consistent with established programs that focus on developing the scholar athlete, Students First provides direct academic assistance for students in the form of academic screening, individualized tutoring (based on perceived needs) and guidance towards other professionals that can assist with their long term career goals on and off the basketball court. This program has merit and potential and can assist Team Hurricane coaches with providing updated information as to the overall potential of the student when recruiters express interest in a player.”
On the athletic side, in keeping with its mission to provide the best competitive basketball experience for student-athletes who want to pursue a college education, Team Hurricane is aligning with Alexander Basketball Academy to hold the Team Hurricane-Global Squad Invitational Skills Camp. The fostering of such relationships serves to benefit Bermuda’s student-athletes as Team Hurricane works with other basketball academies experienced in bringing international players to U.S. college coaches.
Alexander Basketball Academy (ABA) is a basketball training organization dedicated to helping international athletes achieve their basketball related goals and reach the “next level.” For nearly 10 years ABA players have reached their highest potential by utilizing cutting-edge training techniques and a distinctive coaching style that stresses physical improvement, mental growth, and leadership. Alexander Basketball Academy is led by John Alexander. John played 4 years of college basketball at Washington College (Chestertown, Maryland) where he was captain and three time Defensive Player of the Year.
Planned for the weekend of April 10th, 2015 at Bermuda College, the main objective of the Team Hurricane – Global Squad Invitational Skills Camp will be to teach players how to develop their individual basketball skills whether on their own or with a small group of friends. Student-athletes will learn fundamental training techniques including proper footwork, speed, agility, ball-handling, and shooting. At camps end players will have the tools necessary to train at a high level regardless of where they live or the facilities at their disposal. Just as importantly, the camp seeks to identify those student-athletes with the talent to play college basketball in the United States.
Founder and Head Coach, Doug Reed, is pleased with the launch of Team Hurricane’s new initiatives. “These programs allow Team Hurricane Basketball Academy to continue to provide a platform in which student-athletes can train, develop and reach their academic and athletic potential.”
