As a result of the current health crisis, our regularly planned programming for the Vancouver Aces for Spring/Summer of 2020 was preempted, and now with the current precautions and guidelines set out by the governing bodies, a modified program has been put together as a way to encourage and engage our registered Van Aces participants while also staying safe and adhering to all safety guidelines. To register, simply go to the REGISTER page on this site; there is no cost to our modified Summer 2020 programming.
LEVEL 1 – ON-LINE TRAINING: Individual Tutorials and Drills
Our Community Youth Coaches will provide short videos of varying ability levels (beginner/intermediate/advanced) that participants can view and try at their own individual pace. There are also various optional challenges that the coaches have included for our participants to try.
If participants wish to take their drills one step further beyond simply viewing the videos for ideas to try, they can set up one-on-one online coaching sessions with our coaches by sending us an email at email@example.com or through our CONTACT page on this site. Online coaching sessions can be in one of the two following formats, and registered participants should indicate which they prefer when sending their initial request:
IMMEDIATE FEEDBACK – a “live” one-on-one session set up on MS Teams where one of our coaches can go over a break down of a particular drill and give immediate feedback; these live one-on-one sessions would be limited to 20 minutes maximum time each session, one session maximum per day, as a limit on screen time.
DELAYED FEEDBACK – a back-and-forth communication stream set up via email whereby the participant sends their questions and/or footage of themselves going through a particular drill or skill and one of our coaches would respond and work specifically with that participant through that drill. Because of the delayed timing aspect, this could encompass multiple drills, with the frequency of communication determined by the participant and the coach on the initial reply.

LEVEL 2 – IN PERSON TRAINING: to be offered later on in Summer 2020
If a participant is in need of a basketball please let us know – we can provide one!
Any questions can be sent to our email address or through the contact page on this site.
