06JUN2018 - 2017/18 Player of The Year Award - London Ramblers U14 Girls Basketball
I am a 14 year old 9th grade student (September 2018). I am left handed. I am a ball handler/shooter/defender who loves basketball.
On November 23, 2018, I received notice that I had been selected to attend the Tri-City Top 40 Girls Camp in coordination with Adidas brand to be held late-May, 2019 in Waterloo, Ontario. The information indicated that I had been "scouted throughout the summer and high school season as one of the top players in the region and that this camp recruits the Top 40 basketball players across the region in Grades 11-Prep as of September 2018. The Top 40 Camp focuses on skill development & talent exposure."
On November 15, 2018, I received notice that I was one of four girls from our region selected to participate in the Ontario Basketball Association's 1st Centre of Performance Centralized sessions, taking place on December 1, 2018 in Etobicoke, Ontario and December 2, 2018 in Brampton, Ontario. This event brings the top players identified in each of the Regional Centre of Performance "pods" together from throughout the Province. The Ontario Basketball Association lists their Centre of Performance, on their website as "a national program designed to develop student-athletes to compete at the international basketball level. The program revolves around the “hot house” approach and focuses on student-athletes in the key years of their development. The emphasis of CP is to train skills that student-athletes do not otherwise have the opportunity to develop. CP is not based on a competition model. Instead, it is a group of student-athletes training together in regional pods across Ontario with the common goal of improving. Regional training pods are led by high-level, certified coaches who follow age-specific curriculum developed by Ontario Basketball and Canada Basketball. Top athletes from each pod are selected to participate in centralized training weekends." .
On September 8th, 2018, I was 1 of 12 girls selected to play on the London JUEL Prep (www.juel.ca) team. Practices will commence after the high school season ends in November and competition begins in January 2019.
On June 27, 2018, I received official news that I was 1 of 12 - U14 girls Basketball players, selected to represent the Huron Region for the 2018 Ontario Summer Games.

In the summer of 2017, I completed a week at the Elite Basketball Camp in Toronto, Ontario. As a result of my efforts and success in this camp, I was selected to attend a week long premier ball handling camp in Toronto beginning July 31, 2017. At this camp, I was 1 of 4 females who participated in the group that was primarily made up of boys going into 9th Grade. I was one of the younger players overall. I was told by the instructors that I was one of the top 10 players (boys or girls) in the group. On August 10, 2017 I was the only female 8th grader invited to participate in an Elite Basketball camp for players in high school who are looking to prepare for the upcoming season. I participated in 2 additional basketball camps this summer.
At the end of the 2016-17 school year, I graduated from 7th grade. I am completing 8th Grade. Basketball is my favourite sport. I have played school basketball since Grade 4. I have won 4 city championship titles in 4 years. I have played Club basketball since the time that I was in Grade 1. I have always played up one to two age levels. This past 2016-17 Club season, I played up on an 8th/9th Grade team. We played tournaments in Lansing, Michigan; Fort Wayne, Indiana; Flint, Michigan; Clio, Michigan; Grosse Point, Michigan and Lapeer, Michigan.
In the summer of 2017, as an 8th grader, I played in a Junior Varsity Summer league in the Greg Grant Basketball and Training Centre (http://greggrantbasketball.com/) in Sterling Heights, Michigan. I was only able to play in 6 of 8 games, but in the league statistics that were kept, I finished 2nd overall in points per game, tied for 4th overall in 3 point field goals made, 6th overall in FT% (18/25 for a .720%), 1st overall in FT% of players who attempted 20 or more FT's and 3rd overall in FT% of players who attempted 10 or more FT's. In the 2 games of playoffs that ended the season, I scored 19 points in game 1 and 11 in game 2. I was 3/6 from 3 point and 6/8 from the FT line in these two games combined.
I was also the starting goalie on our L5 - U13 Girls Club soccer team. During the 2017 season we won gold medals in 3 of 4 tournaments that we have played in. Our team finished in first place in our Elgin-Middlesex District Soccer League (EMDSL) with a record of 11 wins, 1 Tie and 1 loss. We clinched first overall for the EMDSL and will be moving up to L3 for the 2018 season. I had 6 shutouts in league play and 9 shutouts in tournament play. Our season concluded at the end of August 2017, with a final tournament in Bowling Green, Ohio. We finished 3rd overall in the U13 Elite division.
I love basketball and competing. I want to do whatever I can to keep playing at the highest level that I can for as long as I am able.
