Blue Star Ontario Basketball

Hamilton is a hotbed for basketball in Ontario. Our own local basketball hero's begin their NCAA basketball career Fall 2014: Amira Gianatassio- Mount St. Marys, MD-The Mount, Christina Buttenham-University of Iowa-Hawkeye’s, Hilary Hanaka-University of Vermont-Catamounts and Kia Nurse-University of Connecticut-Huskies.

The energy this year regarding the accolades of Andrew Wiggins has been invigorating. Of course, my favorite is the front cover of Sports Illustrated [Cover-Story]! This past summer Natalie Archonwa of Notre Dame took some quality time to speak with our young aspiring basketballers [Read full story here]. Toronto will be hosting its very first NBA all star game in 2016 [ESPN-NBA].  Needless to say there is a lot of basketball planning going on in the next few years. 

I am very excited to be involved with development and advancement of our young athletes in the future of sports. When some of the biggest basketball advocates offered the opportunity to assist in a new elite basketball program how can I resist!

“We Are Jackets” Tribute Poster

Blessed Sacrament 2012-2013 Major Atom Girls Basketball Team - 12x18 Poster "We Are Jackets"-Forever With Us! Sydney Wood 2001-2012

Certainly one of the most rewarding projects that I have ever done! When Mary inquired about getting information on a tribute gift for the Blessed Sacrament Major Atom Girls Basketball Team, I couldn't wait to get started. I never expected the final product to be this moving and rewarding:

"This picture is probably one of the best things I have ever received my in my life. The thought and love that went into creating this is amazing and very overwhelming. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart You have no idea what this means to me..."-Coach Greg  

"WOW !!!! The Jackets can not thank Miss Robin and Aerial, her special helper for the absolutely wonderful photo that they delivered today to everyone. To see everyone's eyes widen and to hear the sharp intakes of breath as everyone saw the picture for the first time was a moment of pure joy. Robin, your pictures captured the personality of each girl and the love that they have for each other, their Coaches and their special angel Sydney . From the bottom of our hearts Love and Thanks to you.." Mary, aka GM

This Week! “Cancer Candy” is my Favorite!

It was a busy week and many have asked to show the best photos from the Hockey Night in Canada Play On 4 on 4 Street Hockey Tournament on May 11th-12th, 2013  at Mohawk College in Hamilton, Ontario. So the best way is to add some music, sit back and enjoy a quick YouTube video/slide show!

Congratulations to the Transway girls Major Atom Team on their championship win at the CNY Showcase Showdown in Syracuse, NY last weekend. I'm sorry that I was not there to photograph.

OBA Major Atom Girls D1 Provincial Tournament

Division 1 Ontario Basketball Association U12 Major Atom Girls Provincial Results [Click Here] __________________________________________________________________________________________ This will be the most memorable and cherished basketball season ever. The ironic part is that it wasn't even about winning on the court or celebrating championships.  This season was about community growth, compassion and support.  At the beginning of basketball season no one knew how the Blessed Sacrament Major Atom Girls would persevere. The loss of Sydney Wood, one of Blessed’s best players and dear friend was devastating and emotional for all to endure.

DJ camp prayer David Johnson March Break Elite Skills Camp opening prayer in honor of Sydney Wood 2001-2012

Throughout the season it was beautiful to see the girls grow stronger with purpose. They developed momentum with the encouragement of one another, coaches, family and friends. The relationships formed were not forced, but genuine and comforting. The Transway and Blessed Basketball moments of coming together have been the warmest heartfelt experiences ever.

Source: Bhavisha Morphet | February 11, 2013 [Hamilton Scores]

The Transway Major Atom (under-12) girls remain undefeated in tournament play after capturing their own 30th Annual Transway Basketball Invitational.

The AAA title was the third this season for the Atom girls.

Some of the top teams in Ontario from Chatham, Toronto, Stoney Creek, and Dundas battled adverse weather to reach Hamilton and battle it out in the AAA division. The Transway team is now 12-0 in tournament play.

As the defending AAA provincial champions, Transway hopes to extend its winning streak in their next and final tournament of the season before travelling to Mississauga for the Ontario Cup championships in March. The team would also like to thank their sponsors for their generosity and support: Aerial Promotions; Alliance Chiropractic & Wellness Clinic; and DalTech Computers.

The players are from Ancaster, Burlington, Dundas, Stoney Creek, and Hamilton Mountain.

Rochester Tourney U12 Transway Basketball

Robin's Top 50 Eastside Rochester Basketball Tournament Pics! [view all tournament photos below] [cincopa AIHA8BLNciGe] Congratulations to Transway U12 Girls Basketball Team on thier 3rd place finish in the Eastside Basketball Tournament, Rochester-NY. The Transway Team played up a division against girls that were 6+ foot and as old as 13 years. As part of my mission to assist amateur athletes, I donate my time to photograph their athletic achievements. My daughter is 10 years old and although I sincerely wanted to shoot The Mitchell Cup (Football), I needed to be there for her first USA basketball tournament. It was a great experience all around. Getting to know the athletes gives me a fresh perspective and incentive to capture them in action. Taylor even gave me some half time entertainment...Did you know that she is a Gymnast too?

 Transway Rochester

The white balance changed about 6 times in this Gym. It was a beautiful facility, but difficult to photograph with an ever changing light source. Besides defensive player interference and the typical flash of black and white covering the shot from referee positioning it was a beautiful gymnasium. If the action was in my line close to lens the image was sharp and balanced. Other areas were blown out because of the direct sunlight from the windows and light interference from above. Thank goodness I was permitted to shoot anywhere to get some shots of the intense games.  

[cincopa AoJAYBLhbKPm]

It was certainly an eye opener to play basketball in Rochester, USA. There is "A LOT" of leniency in play. In my opinion, shy of full on tackling everything else goes. Don't get me wrong, I am one for contact sport. I like to see aggressive play....It's great for competition and definitely for the camera!

This week the Transway Girls U12 Team will be playing with their purple hearts in remembrance of Sydney Wood on their Jerseys in the Dundas Dynamo Tournament.
