    Tournament Draw        About The Tournament   Raphael is one of the reasons our club exists today! His sudden loss has affected many communities and he has had a positive impact amongst his coaches, mentors, teammates, families and friends. His name is synonymous to the game of basketball and he had so much more to give. This tournament serves as a celebration of his life on the court and 204 Customs will be donating portions of the proceeds from this tournament to a scholarship fund under his name. We hope that you can participate and spread the word to those who may be interested. We look forward to hosting you and appreciate your support of the Alcoreza family. #icanandiwill22 #excellenceisthepassinggrade #ra22forever #204customsbasketblal #204customstournament #tributeto22   All in at the #bestinthewest2016 tournament.

Proud of the 16U ballers who battled the I-5 traffic on our 1-day Lorenzo Romar Team Shootout at the University of Washington home floor, Alaska Airlines Arena. 4 games in 5 hours is what you call a fast-trak event. Takeaways better zone offense execution happy with player minutes and their rotations 4 games in 5 hours is bound to empty out your tank leave home early for road trip games across the border just in case a bridge jumper wants to hold off traffic for hours and hours great facilities and fun vibe on venues we played in 3 and 1 record as a first time participant is pretty good I’d say T-shirt swag was a nice surprise   Happening now …. #lorenzoromarbasketballcamp . 16U ballin with some of Seattle’s best. #204customs #204customsaau #16usummersquad #roadtrip #alaskaairlinesarena #universityofwashington A video posted by 204customs (@204customs) on Jun 25, 2016 at 1:43pm PDT Weekend warriors …. #lorenzoromarbasketballcamp @mandoo.jr @_raphaelac @fremynextdoor @wisdomkaye @dante_alridge A photo posted by 204customs (@204customs) on Jun 25, 2016 at 1:49pm PDT The Dawg Pack …. #universityofwashington #lorenzoromarbasketballcamp #alaskaairlinesarena #16usummersquad A photo posted by 204customs (@204customs) on Jun 25, 2016 at 11:36pm PDT Tunnel mood ….

The 2016 Basketball BC U15 Gold Division Experience

on Jun 7, 2016 in AAU, Basketball, Basketball Blog, Kids,Youth, Tournaments

Coaching two teams this past weekend was exhausting! 10 games in 3 days was epic but the boys came out to compete even having very little practice times prior. Way to go youngbloods! Congratulations on winning Bronze in the U15 Boys Gold Division hopefully we can go for gold next year! Boxscores: U14 vs U15 Vancity Black: 56 – 49 Loss U14 vs MacHoops: 34 – 30 Win U14 vs Chilliwack: 63 – 15 Win U14 vs DIPP Kelowna: 43 – 37 Loss U14 vs Vancity Black: 50 – 41 Win Takeaways: when we’re aggressive with the ball, good things happen continue to struggle with press breaks, I will have to include more plays in our cookbook slow and steady wins the race, sometimes we do a better job on zone defense as opposed to man, work in progress shooting with confidence was on display physicality was good isolation plays were good rebounding is getting better triangle on the zone was excellent I thought I’ve noticed some players having issues with conditioning     3 and 2 record at this weekend’s #basketballbcclubchampionships for the U15 Gold division gets you the bronze fellas! Keep working and keep learning. You’re all in the same Chemistry class remember that. #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #204customs #204customsaau #204customsselect #14usummersquad #basketballbcclubchampionships @julesfremista @jarrenhuynh @jarlaraffearchitectureciaga @_josephsalazar @zoilo_sarmiento @_nedmedina @sammiesteban @acadak_is_lit A photo posted by 204customs (@204customs) on Jun 6, 2016 at 9:09am PDT #14usummersquad on good rotation at #basketballbcclubchampionships. 3 down one more to go … Go get it today youngbloods! @julesfremista @sammiesteban @jarrenhuynh @jarlaraffearchitectureciaga @_nedmedina @zoilo_sarmiento @_josephsalazar A photo posted by 204customs (@204customs) on Jun 5, 2016 at 8:15am PDT To the #14usummersquad, never look back!

The 2016 Basketball BC U17 Elite Experience

on Jun 6, 2016 in AAU, Basketball, Basketball Blog, Kids,Youth, Tournaments

Don’t be fooled by the results from this tournament. The #16usummersquad took their talents one division higher and had their work cut out for them in having to compete with some of the best 17U teams of All Star talents from the lower mainland. 3 games out of the 5 being decided by 2 points proves we stayed close and had our chances late in games.. Boxscores: 16U vs Outlaws (Abbotsford): 50 – 48 Loss 16U vs Vancouver Basketball Academy: 79 – 56 Loss 16U vs Vancity U16 Selects Pt1: 58 – 56 Loss 16U vs Vancity U16 Selects Pt2: 74 – 57 Loss 16U vs Outlaws (Abbotsford): 48 – 46 Loss Takeaways: Not running back on defense will have impact on your playing time. It affects the team’s ability to get back in transition and not an inspiration to others You never know when you’ll be given a chance with this deep roster, but when you do how will you respond? Bigs shying away from contact Need improvement from bigs on ability to pass out of the paint, but seen some nifty big-to-big passing … keep that up Need to call screens on our teammates getting picked HERO ball may work in other courts or leagues, but our philosophies don’t allow this if you want to play structured and disciplined ball Play execution on newly introduced SLOB plays was on point Triangle zone offense proved to be the only one out of our zone playbook to work. We need to get better on other zone looks. Learning to adjust on consecutive plays, if a shooter has hit a corner 3ball twice, don’t let him hit the 3rd, 4th or 5th. Fake a pass to make a pass     3 games decided by 2 points in the #basketballbcclubchampionships U17 Division1 this weekend proves you belong fellas.

Boxscores: Game1 vs FYB Calgary (54 – 42 Loss) Game2 vs CYDC Calgary (84 – 49 Win) Game3 vs Kelowna Legends (99 – 45 Win) Game4 vs FYB Calgary (62 – 52 Win) Takeaways  poor rebounding too many turnovers fouling too much ball rotation and sharing was good and something to build on late game free throw was overall good, but still a good chunk missed • 1-3-1 zone was effective with smaller lineup shooting percentage was pretty good, the long ball was on-point, overall shot selection I”m pretty happy about need work on passing out of double-teams our team support is second-to-none Check out what a 9-0 run, a key steal, a key block can do to close out a game...
