Meadows assists on national U19 team

UBC Okanagan head coach with Canada’s U19 women’s team at World Cup

Coaching year round has become the norm for UBC Okanagan Heat women’s head basketball coach Claire Meadows.

For the second straight off-season Meadows has elected to spend the summer months of June and July with Canada Basketball.

This year, Meadows is an assistant with the U19 women’s national Team that is competing at the FIBA U19 Women’s Basketball World Cup 2017 in Udine and Cividale del Friuli, Italy.

Last summer Meadows was involved with basically the same group, being one of just two assistants to the 2016 U18 women’s national team.

Both years the teams have been headed by Ryerson university’s Carly Clarke.

The Canadian women tipped off at the FIBA U19 Women’s Basketball World Cup with three consecutive wins over Korea, France and Latvia.
