As I’ve always said, this blog is about my life as a father and husband and not only business. So this post is more related to the things I really love, my family and supporting them in what they do.
Our family really enjoys this time of year. The kids are back in full swing of basketball mode and we are doing our best to follow them around to get to all their events. All of my kids are attending American Leadership Academy in Queen Creek, Arizona. Daxon’s season has just got underway (8th grade) and they are 1-1. I’ll have some game tape for him that I’ll share soon.
I have the opportunity to help coach Tia’s team. She’s a junior this year and has started out strong. Her stats can be tracked on MaxPreps HERE
This past weekend we played in the Holiday Hoops women’s Basketball Tournament in Phoenix and Tia was named to the All Tournament All-Star Team. Our first game was probably her best where she had 29 points, she was 7 for 9 from behind the three point line, had 16 rebounds and 8 steals.
It’s going to be a fun year watching both Tia and Daxon, we are really looking forward to it!
Tia and her team had a great season of basketball in 2014/2015. Tia was the point guard of the team and is looking forward to entering high school next year to play at the next level. This summer she is playing for Basketball Alberta again on the U16 Girls team. They will be playing in the Seattle Summer Showcase from July 10-12, 2015 and then will be headed north to Langley BC for some exhibition games. After these games their next big event is the Western Canadian Summer Games in Wood Buffalo AB that begin on August 7.
This is a highlight video of Tia with her Grade 9 Cardston Cougar Team.
This spring Tia also made the University of Lethbridge PEBL (Prairie Elite Basketball League) U17 team. Unfortunately during their first tournament at the University of Alberta she broke a bone in her leg and didn’t get to play the entire season. But this video shows some highlights from her first couple games at the UofA tournament. She’s excited to be healed up and ready for Alberta Ball now. (She is #3 on the blue and white team)
