NBA All-Star Challenge Coming to Halifax Saturday, January 16th

NBA All-Star weekend is being held in Canada for the first time ever, February 12-14 in Toronto. The NBA wants basketball fans all across Canada to experience the excitement of All-Star weekend by holding events in 15 cities across Canada in the weeks and months leading up to All-Star weekend. Halifax is this coming Saturday, Jan 16th, 9am at St. Mary’s University!

The event will feature 3 challenges; the exact challenges that NBA players compete in during All-Star weekend. There will be a 3-point shooting contest, a skills-challenge and the always-exciting dunk contest. The top performers nationally (6 in total) will win an all-expense paid trip to All-Star weekend in Toronto in February! Any girl or boy 14 years of age or older (no limit) can participate and there is no cost to enter.

Please forward this information on to your school basketball coaches so that he/she can pass along to their players. I have also included an event poster that can be printed and posted in your school. If the event can be included in any morning student announcements, that would also be greatly appreciated. With your help, I know we can make Halifax the largest NBA All-Star Challenge event in Canada!

Additional event information can also be found at www.nba.com/allstarevents. My contact information is also below if you have any questions or require additional information.

Thank you for your support!

Wrestling – Canada Games

Wrestling Nova Scotia has asked the NSSAF to forward this information to all high schools.
 
As the head coach of the 2017 Canada Games girls coaching staff I am reaching out to high school coaches to identify girls interested in becoming part of the Canada Games Core team. 
 
I would appreciate it if you could identify girls who are interested in being part of this team and are willing to dedicate the time to improve their skill to be a competitive wrestler versus the rest of the Canada Games competitors.
 
As a member of this team these girls will have opportunities to travel and develop throughout the province, the Atlantic region, nationally and perhaps even in the U.S.
 
Wrestlers will expect to prepare themselves physically with group and individual physical training sessions to prepare their body to be stronger to gain an advantage over competition.
 
There will be mandatory and optional camps that the athletes will be expected to attend. 
 
The following is information on the Canada Games  team that you can share with your girls and their parents. I would appreciate it if you could get this information out to your female wrestlers and their parents. If you have any girls without wrestling experience who are interested then by all means  forward this to them as we are always looking for a “diamond in the rough” like a Canadian gymnast turned wrestler – Martine Dugrenier who was a three time wrestling world champion.
 
Please forward this email to them and either have the coach, wrestler or parent contact me in order to generate an email list and start dialogue with the team.
 
CANADA GAMES 2017- WINNIPEG
  
Are you a female born in 1999, 2000, 2001 or 2002?
 
Wrestling Nova Scotia is looking to develop wrestlers for the 2017 Canada Games.
 
What is required from an athlete?  The primary attribute is commitment and a good work ethic. Someone who is dedicated to work and train several times a week to eagerly learn the sport of wrestling will have success in the sport.The primary attribute is hard work and commitment.
 
What will it cost? Wrestling is a very affordable sport. The usual cost to enter a tournament is $20 and there are about 5-6 local tournaments as well as Regional and National Championships. There will be fees to be part of the Canada Games Core Team and there will be minor expenses to cover the cost of local camps. There is funding available through Kidsport and there is a Canada Games budget to cover training costs as well as many fundraising opportunities. There will be affordable development opportunities to travel regionally, nationally and even to the USA.
 
What will involvement in the Canada Games provide me? If you are committed to developing as a wrestler then you will have an amazing experience representing Nova Scotia at the 2017 Canada Games in Winnipeg. It is a “once in a lifetime experience”  in an energetic setting surrounded by your athletic peers representing all sports in the country. It is an unforgettable experience!
 
What will involvement in this sport provide me? Many Canada Games athletes continue their athletic and academic pursuits in university representing their school or their country in many international competitions. Scholarships in Canada and the USA are available for many wrestlers. Wrestling is an amazing sport for boosting self esteem and confidence in a youth in a very positive setting.
 
Do I need experience? If you have the right attitude and are eager to learn then over the next two years we can prepare girls with good attitudes to learn the sport of wrestling and to benefit greatly from this incredible sport. One of the best wrestlers in Canadian history, Martine Dugrenier was a competitive gymnast who started wrestling after high school and became a three time world champion with incredible opportunities including two Olympics.
 
How do I start and who can answer any questions about the sport of wrestling or questions about the Canada Games?
 
Contact Canada Games Female coach- Mike Lidstone at:  sackvillewrestling@hotmail.com
 
Looking forward to hearing from those interested,
