Winston Brown

Founder, Head Coach, Board Member

Winston has been involved in girl’s basketball in Vancouver since 1993.  Relatively young and inexperienced, he relied heavily on the methods he had witnessed as an athlete.  Through passion and drive, he was able to develop into one of the most respected women’s coaches in BC.  As a young coach, he recognized that many quality athletes were missing out on the elite development opportunities that were granted to a fortunate few.  In 2003, he joined with a few coaches to form Triple Threat Basketball.  Through Triple Threat he saw not only an opportunity for young athletes to continue developing during their high school off season, but also (more significantly) an opportunity for young coaches to train elite athletes.  It’s this symbiotic relationship that makes any club program so beneficial.  While Triple Threat is proud of the players it has helped to develop, it’s equally honored to have given young coaches a challenging environment in which to hone their craft.
