Saskatoon Centennial Chargers

The girls team from Centennial Collegiate in Saskatoon placed second in their league last year and are first this season. The team’s philosophy of success is that talent only takes a person so far; it is the other variables that lead to long term, end of season success. Hard work, team chemistry, and intrinsically motivated players are the keys to a successful season. The Centennial Chargers won a bronze medal at the BOWLT Classic in Saskatoon, silver at HOOPLA in 2017 and silver at Cities in 2017. The Chargers’s philosophy of leadership is that leaders come in many forms, but the characteristic that is consistent is that they are all capable of motivating their team to do their best. That is why a good team consists of 12 players that lead and motivate in different ways. Three particular leaders include Micah Bartel, Kaitlin Jockims and Courtney Primeau. Grade 12 captain, Micah Bartel, has shown great leadership qualities on and off the court and is a fantastic role model for the young team. Kaitlin Jockims leads with her constant intensity, outstanding game play and ability to get her team going. She played under 17 Team Sask last summer and was invited to Team Canada Basketball Camp. Also, she plays AAA midget hockey for the Saskatoon Stars. Courtney Primeau leads with her strong presence on the court and her ability to be vocal. She played U17 Team Sask last summer.
