Have talent, will travel.

Avery Snider, a Mark R. Isfeld Secondary School Grade 9 student, has made the U15 Girls Provincial Basketball Team and will represent B.C. in tournaments across Western Canada and the U.S. this summer.

“Avery was a point guard for the Isfeld Ice junior girls this past year and was instrumental in helping the team qualify for the B.C. championships,” noted coach Grant Ashlee. To qualify for the B.C. team she had to go through a few steps, Ashlee noted.

“First, Avery was a member of the Basketball BC North Island Regional Team. The team played in a few tournaments in the spring before travelling to the Provincial Zone Tournament in Langley in late May.

“Fifteen regional teams attended this tournament and a selection committee identified 50 players of the 150 players to attend a try-out camp for the provincial team. Avery was one of the 50 players selected and after a weekend of very tough completion she was selected to represent B.C.,” Ashlee said.

“Avery brings to the provincial team a very polished set of skills where she excels at driving to the basket, making it very difficult for the opposing teams to defend. Combine this with her excellent shooting and ball handling skills and this makes her a very worthy member of the B.C. team.”

Ashlee added that, as a point guard, Snider possesses an uncanny sense of vision which gives her the ability to make excellent passes and distribute the ball to her teammates, giving them an opportunity to score.

Snider will be practising almost every weekend at the Langley Events Centre, a complex that has three full-sizes basketball courts.
