Hailey Brown – Canadian Cadette/National Team Basketball Player
“I have been affiliated with The Canadian Basketball National and Provincial teams for several years now. I am currently training and preparing for The World Championships this summer in Spain with the Cadette National Team age group. This past year I have been getting my training in at the RISE facility, and recently I have started to work with Kwbana Beckles. All of our workouts, whether they are on court or in the strength room, have been exceptional. Kwbana consistently pushes me to get better each and every time we are working. His knowledge of the game has a huge benefit to my training because he can easily relate to all of the aspects that come with playing at a high level and knows how hard to push so that I can reach my training and playing goals.” -Hailey Brown, 2016
