Empowering female student-athletes
3D Basketball, in partnership with Abbotsford School District is proud to introduce Valley Prep. This elite basketball training program uses the sport of basketball as a vehicle towards career exploration for motivated female athletes.
Unlike other programs, Valley Prep student-athletes will benefit from the new Career and Life Education Curriculum and in receiving credit for these courses will explore career possibilities within the context of this program.
In addition to basketball and weight training, student-athletes will visit 10 universities (both in BC and Washington State), meet with coaches and players and garner an understanding of the post-secondary experience. Valley Prep will also include evening, district-hosted parent sessions with Canadian and American university representatives speaking about navigating post-secondary applications, recruitment, and determining the ‘best educational fit’.
"Valley Prep is a valuable opportunity for girls basketball players in high school. The ability to contact so many post-secondary coaches, prepares girls to think forward and take initiative concerning their academic and athletic careers. I have appreciated the off court sessions where speakers have discussed about diet, mental health, and team bonding. The weight program and training pushes us to work hard and improve ourselves. It has been a successful first year and the program can only improve. The coaching, opportunity, and comradely between the girls makes Valley Prep a truly fantastic experience". - Gr. 12 player Kyla Smith
