SUPER STAR ALUMNA SUNDAY-JUSTIN JACKSON! Congratulations @j5_ttre on all your recent and future success with the University of Maryland Terrapins @terrapinhoops You have an amazing fan base here @theRISEcentre in #Canada as we watch you follow your dreams with passion. Thank you for helping us build our program and allowing us to know you along this journey. We will never forget the last day when Justin Jackson visited us at the #RISE Centre after his announcement to Maryland. It was the honour and integrity that ended with handshakes and hugs which made us feel what we are doing makes a difference. “Thank you for the opportunity that you have given me. I had a great experience, made new friends and also learned a lot….” Kind regards, Justin Jackson 2016.We also need to extend a humble and appreciative thank you to the Jackson family for the beautiful words and support . “Thanks for everything you have done, we the Jackson’s are very grateful. By the way the facilities looks great!” 41 weeks ago we posted a Congratulations to some of our notable alumni from @theRISEcentre #TRC Academy program (Formerly Hill Basketball Academy rebranded to TRC Academy Wolfpack). Our inaugural season @theRISEcentre mens team post secondary placement succeeded at 100%: 4 players Committed to D1 Basketball Programs, 4 Committed to CIS Basketball Programs, 4 Returning Players to TRC Academy.

With skills forged in Canada, Justin Jackson is making his mark at Maryland
Washington Post: By Roman Stubbs December 26, 2016 “Jackson was originally committed to play with Poyser at UNLV, but reopened his recruitment last spring after the Running Rebels fired coach Dave Rice last spring. It was a wild and uncertain time in Jackson’s life. He had left Findlay Prep after his junior year to play his final season at Hill Academy in Ontario, which gave him the luxury of isolation close to family and a chance to develop his game away from the noise of the American system. But he knew he would eventually cross the border again to continue his career at the Division I level….”

Milton Canadian Champion June 27, 2018 Jim Leworthy (Builder) The Godfather of Lacrosse in Milton, Leworthy began introducing the sport to the local sports scene in 1984 with the foundation of the Milton Minor Lacrosse Association. In the first year 40 kids registered, with that number growing to as many as 500 during his 15-year span. Once the minor system was established, Leworthy shifted his attention to securing a Jr. B franchise in Milton.That successful bid — in 1995 — led to the Mavericks hosting the national Founders Cup and securing a silver medal. | RISE-Realize Individual Success Everyday #TRCWBB #TRCMBB #RPMBB #TRChockey | 411 Elgin St, Brantford, Ontario, Canada, N3S-7P5 @theRISEcentre | TRC IG: @TRCacademy| TRC Twitter: @TRCwolfpack
