One of the most well-respected, basketball specific, trainers in the world was in the Thunderdome over the past weekend as Coach Alan Stein held a "Cutting Edge" youth clinic in Thunder Bay. Over 60 young players at the junior and senior level attended the event that was put on by Coach Jon Kreiner and the Lakehead women's program. Coach Brandon Rafuse of the famed Nova Scotia Thunder Selects girls' club program was also in town as part of the clinic and held skill sessions in conjunction with Stein's footwork, agility, strength & conditioning (etc.) sessions. As part of the weekend, Coach Stein also worked out with both the men's and women's varsity players who are on campus for the summer.
The players were put through their paces and the Lakehead coaches had an opportunity to learn some valuable pieces of information and training tools that will stay with the team long-term. A big thanks from everyone with the team to Alan Stein and Coach Rafuse for a great weekend. The men's team was represented by 8 players including Greg Carter, Yoosrie Salhia, Brendan King, Nathan Wainwright, Ryan Thomson, Anthony McIntosh and Karl Rom.
