Players within this program demand attention from local basketball post-secondary institutions and attract inquiries from coaches and scouts south of the boarder.

Not only does this program promote skill development to enable athletic opportunity, but it also guides the athletes through the process of recruitment both nationally and within the NCAA standards

This club also offers a Juel Prep team and a competitive summer travel program, which has made tournament appearances in North Carolina, Arizona, Kentucky, Illinois, Florida, New York, and Ohio.

Skills camps are hosted throughout the year and run by guest-coaches from the women’s basketball program at Windsor, Ontario, Acadia, Nova Scotia, and Memorial, Newfoundland.

Alumni from this program have achieved recognition within their post-secondary programs and continue to impact the leagues they progress in as they build on the skill development that was established within the Tri-County Thunder girls basketball club.
