Small Group

We understand, money can be tough sometimes.  Or maybe you prefer to train with your friends/teammates.  Small groups are 2-3 players, and are paid individually at a discounted rate.  Any of the above session options can be selected.

 

Large Group

If you have 4 or more players that want to train together, we can accommodate that too.  These are also paid by each person attending.

 

Team

Please Email us at firstseedathletics.acct@gmail.com to set up Team Sessions.

Teams that train and practice together are teams that win together.  These sessions are 2 hours, and are the same fee regardless of how many players are on the team.  Have your coach book with us and choose the session’s focus.  2 trainers, 2 hours, 1 team….are you envisioning the possibilities yet?

Andrew Paul

Andrew is a co-founder of First Seed Athletics, and is 19 years old.  Sports have always been a huge part of his life, with basketball always being the primary. He has played since the age of nine competing on school teams as well as travel teams within the GBA. The past two seasons he played for the GBA Elite U19 squad.  

    At the age of six, Andrew was found to have a tumour in his ankle.  As a result, from below the knee, his leg had to be amputated.  For most people, this is a disability.   Watching Andrew makes you realize that a disability is more of a state of mind than body.  He still played for the GBA Elite U19 team, which is a division one basketball program.  He still plays football in his spare time, and does not let one unfortunate event affect his life in any way.  This dedication, perseverance, and determination to succeed is truly an inspiration to everyone around him.

    Andrew has one younger sister and has been raised by outstanding parents, Roger and Ruth.  He handles the technology for FSA, and is an excellent visionary.  Through work as a basketball referee and coach, he has learned to be confident, as well as a leader.  The idea of sowing seed, and giving being gain is also a principle that Andrew believes in wholeheartedly.

Levi St Pierre

Levi is a co-founder of First Seed Athletics, and is 20 years old.  He has participated in competitive sports all of his life, including basketball, football, and baseball.  He grew up playing in the backyard and driveway with his older brothers, which led to his drive and commitment to success.

    Due to considerable involvement in church events at a young age, Levi has grown accustomed to public speaking, and is comfortable in front of large audiences.  Another ability that he learned while working at church was his interaction with younger groups.  This has proven very effective and useful as a coach and trainer.   

Levi  was the quarterback for the Grimsby Eagles football squad, and a forward for the Grimsby Eagles basketball team.  Also, for the past four seasons, Levi has been a member of the GBA Elite U19 basketball team.  This level of dedication is seen in every facet of his life, especially FSA.

    Raised by loving parents, Patrick and Dorothy, Levi has always been taught to prioritize his life properly.  Faith, family, and then everything else has been the order.  He has also been taught that giving is gain, and this is now one of his favourite principles, of which First Seed Athletics is a perfect example.

KOJO AFARI

Kojo is a 24 year old professional basketball player who just signed his first contract with Hamilton United, of the Canadian Basketball League. He started playing basketball at the age of 15 and fell in love with the game. After graduating high school, he moved to Sault Ste. Marie to play for the Sault College Cougars for 3 years. By his second year he was the team captain, leading scorer, leading rebounder, and led his team to their first winning record in school history. Kojo used his last 2 years of eligibility to play in his hometown of Hamilton, at Mohawk College. During that time he was an OCAA Gold and Silver medalist, competed in the CCAA National Championship tournament, and finished in the top ten both years. Additionally, he is a two-time St Lawrence tournament gold medalist, two-time George Brown invitational gold medalist, and 2015-16 George Brown Invitational tournament MVP.

Kojo has a real passion for impacting the younger generation, and to have the opportunity to do this through basketball is a dream come true for him.
