MEDIA RELEASE

The JUEL of Ontario; Canada's only Provincial League with franchises from Windsor to Ottawa is entering its fourth season of play. The 2014 season will include the addition of the JUEL Prep division (grade 9/10 players) bringing the total number of teams to 32 (14 JUEL, 18 JUEL Prep) and roughly 384 players. After 3 seasons of success JUEL is looking forward to the next stage of growth and helping players get to the next level.

 

JUEL is looking forward to its inaugural Northern Exposure Event; team commitment has been better than anticipated thus forcing us to add a second location to facilitate all of the games. This year's event includes JUEL and JUEL Prep teams from Ottawa and Windsor showcasing players who would not normally make the trip to central Ontario as well as teams from the Greater Toronto Area. Listed are the committed teams and their bios including players to look for. We look forward to seeing many coaches from the NCAA, CIS and OCAA levels and are excited about developing the event into the Premier Event in the Province every fall.

 

The event will include 2 courts at Sheridan College - Brampton and 1 court at St. Augustine Catholic which is located a 5 minute drive away. Game times will be identical on all courts - 9:00am, 10:00am, 11:00am, 12:00pm, 1:00pm, 2:00pm, 3:00pm, 4:00pm and 5:00pm. Coaches should visit www.juel.ca for the final schedule prior to the event. Games will consist of 2 - 16 minute halves; the Peel Referees Association is using the event as a camp for their new Officials in an effort to help get them ready for their season.

BARRIE ROYALS

  • The 2014 Barrie Royals Juel team can best be described as versataile. The team consists 9 players who can play just about any position on the floor. The guards Samantha Loucks, Alex Hay, Samantha Robertson, Marianne Alarie and U15 sensation Mikaela Brewer can all play the 1 or 2 spot and all shoot both the midrange and long ball very well. Look for this group to make good decisions in transition and make collapsing defenses pay! The forwards (Lindsay Edward, Taylor McAlpine, Megan Smith, and Katharina Holt) can all play with their back to the basket; stretch their opponent to the 3 point arc; and all can put the ball on the floor and attack. Newmarket Denison product Sam Kordez, along withAugust Ricketts and Allyson Schweitzer, will prove to add some signigicant strength and power with their back to the basket power forward play as well as their excellent midrange games. The Barrie Royals offensively will be an opportunistic up-tempo ball movement, people movement team that will move the ball from side of the floor to the other very quickly and present many teams with difficult matchups. This is a team with collectively a very high basketball IQ. The Royals will look to lead the league in charges taken again this year and be very physical and scrappy on the defensive end.
  • Players to look for - Point Guards Samantha Robertson and Marianne Alarie, Shooting GuardsAlex Hay and Samantha Loucks and Forward August Ricketts.

HAMILTON TRANSWAY

  • Hamilton Transway is coming off a strong 2013 season where they won the "JUEL Grads" trophy with a young group.

TORONTO TRIPLE THREAT

  • Toronto Triple Threat JUEl Prep team has been together as a core squad since playing Novice-age (7, 8 & 9yr. olds). During those formative years they have competed at the OBA Division #1 level of competition earning 2 Bronze, 1 Silver and 1 Gold Medal at the Provincial Championships. In the summer of 2012, Triple Threat represented Ontario at the Eastern National Championships taking home the Gold after an impressive display of dominance going 5-0 while outscoring their opponents by an average score of 35+ points. This is an explosive team which can play on the perimeter or in the paint. Although it's fair to admit that the team compliment is made up of a well-rounded group of individuals (they have also signed on three new additions) who all understand their roles, they also must highlight the dominant play of three individuals who have proven time and again to rise above any challenge placed in front of them. Aiden Rainford is a 6'1 G/F who truly understands how to compete with her back to the basket, but can also handle the rock when asked to do so. MVP of the Eastern National Championships in 2012, member of Team Ontario Development Team in 2012 and Gold Medalist with the U15 Team Ontario squad this past summer. Ciara Findlayer is a 5'10 PG who can beat you with multiple athletic moves to the basket. This 2011 OBA Provincials Gold Medalist and MVP is one of the most explosive players in her age bracket. Lastly, there is Akilah Stewart, a 5'4 PG, who like her backcourt running mate is by far the most unstoppable player out there. She is a both a threat on defense and offense - pick your poison. She has very good range as well.

SULTAN PROSPECTS

  • A club with a rich history of producing players since 2000. Sultan Prospects Major Midget team is in their first year within the program but is a team that has been together for the past 4 years.

  • Players to look for - Curryl Watson, Riel Flack, Thaliyah Phillips, Miea Johnson

WINDSOR VALIANTS

  • This team finished in Top 8 in Grade 9 and has higher expectations for this upcoming season. With a good balance of strong Guards and Forwards, they should be a team to watch.
