Where can I learn basketball skills in Delta BC?

Split Second Basketball is partnering with the City of Delta this fall to establish a skills development program at the South Delta Recreation Center in Tsawwassen.

The Split Second Train and Play program is for boys and girls ages 10-17 and offers weekly two-hour sessions to work on all aspects of the game, including shooting, rim finishing, passing, ball handling and footwork. These skills will be incorporated into 3v3 league play.

The program will run on consecutive Fridays, from September 24 to November 12, leading into the school season at all age levels. The departure time will depend on the age group. Registration can be done at the town hall. deltareg.ca website, using the barcode 515458 to find the program.

Split Second is a basketball coaching organization founded in Vancouver in 2010 by former college and professional player Eric Butler. Along with Navi Sekhon, he also oversees the Delta School District Basketball Academy on the Richmond Olympic Oval, which has been put on hiatus during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Our goal is to provide a professional, consistent, high-quality training option to prepare players to play at their school and on South Delta Steve Nash League teams,” Butler said.
