Our Philosophy

Future Hawks is a youth boys basketball program that focuses on developing fundamental basketball skills, sportsmanship, and team concepts. We are seeking seeing youth basketball players that have a positive attitude and strive to be their best.

The Difference

Coaching will be administered by members of the Memorial Sea-Hawks men’s basketball team and the Sea-Hawks coaching staff. Leading the program is Memorial Head Coach Ian Coultas, who has been coaching in Newfoundland & Labrador for over 20 years. Ian has coached at the Provincial, Club, AAU, & University levels & is a fully certified NCCP Level III coach. Joining Ian, will be Flynn Boardman-Raffett (London, England), Boris Ristanovic (Serbia), Liai Tong (St. John’s), Merreck Mintz (Regina, Saskatchewan), Nathan Childs (Corner Brook, NL), & Asa Hood (Port Williams, NS).
“Future Hawks is being created for a number of reasons. First, I think it’s important our coaching staff and players get an opportunity to coach local players at the youth level, learn their names, and share our love of the game with them. Second, our staff will get an opportunity to help with youth player development and inspire these athletes to become Sea-Hawks themselves one day.”
