Under-13 Teams Announced for NMBA Lions
The Northside Minor Basketball Association will operate boys and girls' teams in the under-13 division for Basketball New Brunswick's relatively short spring season.
Both teams are expected participate in BNB tournaments the final weekend of May.
'This is good news moving forward and we're happy to be able to provide another five weeks of training for participants,' said NMBA president Brad Janes. 'We have some new players joining an NMBA team for the first time and that allows further exposure to the programs and quality of coaching we have.'
Josh Whalen and Nathan Scott, both former varsity players with Leo Hayes High Lions, are coaching the boys' team. Whalen and Scott both guided the NMBA mini boys' team this past season.
Former NMBA bantam girls' coach and Nashwaaksis Nordics' head coach Barb Brittany is returning to the sidelines to guide the girls' team. She will be assisted by her son, Brett, a varsity player with Leo Hayes.
Members of the boys' team are Devin Arsenault, Aiden Dorey, Will Callingwood, Brady Fraser, Jaron Killam, Michael Surur, Matt Paradis, David Hassan-Mussa, Sam Phillips, Declan McKillop, Isiah Phillips and Zach Whalen.
The girls' team is made up of Brianna Sinclair, Caitlyn Sinclair, Mikayla Hand, Emma Dewar, Maddie Dougherty, Bailey Howland, Ellie Weir, Hope Wheeler and Megan Kincaid.
The teams will practice Tuesday and Thursday nights from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Leo Hayes.
