South Toronto Golden Eagles
With only a handful of returning players and over half the team new to organized basketball, the challenge early in the season was to focus on fundamentals without losing site of teaching team structure on both the offensive and defensive side of the game. The team plowed through its lack of experience through hard work and determination in each practice. Leading by example, every player bought into the idea of working hard during practice and absorbing basketball knowledge to excel as a team. As the season progressed, new players began gaining more and more confidence while our veteran players instilled leadership and trust in our team. Each player showed tremendous progress with individual fundamentals and the progress translated into consistent team development. We would also like to thank all the players for their hard work and the parents / guardians for their continued support and encouragement throughout the season."
