Centre for Performance (CP)

Centre for Performance (CP) is a nationally established program designed to develop athletes for the purpose of competing at the international basketball level. The program revolves around the “hot house” approach which focuses on athletes in the key years of their development.

The emphasis of CP is to train skills that athletes do not otherwise have the opportunity to develop. CP is not based on a competition model; rather it is a group of athletes training in pods across Ontario for the common goal of getting better.

Athletes who have been in CP in previous years include:

Duane Notice – 2011 U17 National Championships MVP
Chris Egi – 2011 U15 National Championships MVP
Julian Clarke – 2011 Junior National Team
Kevin Pangos – 2011 Junior National Team
Negus Webster-Chan – 2011 Junior National Team
Agunwa Okolie – 2011 U17 National Championships First Team All-Canadian

Frequently Asked Questions:
1. What age athletes is CP for?
There can be slight variations on the ages from year to year including how many athletes from each birth year are selected. Typically athletes are in grade nine through twelve with a few exceptional grade eight athletes.

2. What if I am talented but cannot afford CP?
Ontario Basketball is a not for profit organization and runs its programming on a break even or revenue generating budget however we will not turn away athletes who deserve to be in the program but cannot afford it. We will work with the family to devise a payment plan or assist in securing sponsors.
