North Pole Hoops is proud to announce David Tyndale as Technical Director for the NPH Showcase National circuit, following four years of involvment as a camp instructor.
In his role, Tyndale will lead the development of camp curriculum and ensure consistency of quality coaching across both genders.
The former York University point guard was an OUA East Rookie of the Year and two-time All Star during his 5-year University career before moving on to play professionally.
A knee injury would eventually spell the end of Tyndale’s playing career but he soon realized that former teammates and even opponents were seeking him out as someone to help improve their game. Soon it became apparent what his real calling would be;
a professional basketball trainer.
“I’ve been doing organic training for some years now with players such as Elijah and Naz Long, Dillon Brooks and Nik Stauskas,” explained Tyndale.
“I worked with these players when they were younger and in doing that, it’s important, because I can get through to them and have that trust where I can talk to them on a personal level, it’s all about honesty.”
The same approach that worked with those players is currently being used with some of today’s up-and-coming players in 2024 Mikkel Tynes, 2023 Anthony Wrzeszcz and 2020 Okay Djamgouz.
“The organic training helps through life challenges as opposed to just basketball,” said Tyndale, founder of DTails Matters training.
“Training is more than just being a trainer, it’s about being a life coach, a companion and a big brother.”
Entering year nine of the NPH Showcase Circuit, its important to offer even more value and raise the level of the learning environment for campers across Canada explains North Pole Hoops CEO Tariq Sbiet.
“David Tyndale embodies the same values and work ethic that we share at NPH and is the perfect person to help the next generation of student athletes understand what it takes to achieve their goals.”
As for what most excites the pro trainer for his new role, the answer was simple.
“Finding those diamonds in the rough across the country,” Tyndale said with a smile.
The NPH Showcase circuit begins in Toronto for players in the 2024 to 2027 class April 20-21st as all dates can be seen on through this link.
