The Alberta Sport Development Centre – Central (ASDC-C) is pleased to announce that the ASDC-Central Male Athlete of the Month for February 2018 is Kyle RixKyle Rix is a 16 year old Red Deer, AB resident, Grade 10 student at Hunting Hills High School and a competitive multi-sport athlete. Kyle currently competes with the Central Alberta Basketball Club, Central Alberta Kings Volleyball Club, and also plays on the Hunting Hills Lightning Senior Boys Basketball and Volleyball teams.  Further, Kyle runs track & field and plays on the tennis team for Hunting Hills. 

Kyle was athlete of the year at Eastview Middle School in both grade 7 and 8 and was also Hunting Hills Grade 9 Athlete of the year in 2017.  He won Bronze at the 2016 Alberta Summer Games with his team in basketball and was also named basketball MVP for Hunting Hills in 2017.

This is Kyle’s second year with the Alberta Sport Development Centre program.  Kyle has benefitted significantly from the mental skills training which has improved his ability to focus more effectively in challenging game situations.  Most of his ASDC physical training takes place in the off-season given his busy practice and competition schedule, but he enjoys the supportive, progressive training environment that ASDC provides.  

Kyle has been playing competitive basketball since he was nine years old and is very passionate about the sport.  He hopes to have the opportunity to continue to play basketball at the post-secondary and professional levels after high school.

Kyle’s strong work ethic, his undeniable athletic abilities and his training experiences with ASDC-Central, he will surely continue to grow, develop and succeed in his basketball/volleyball career! 

ASDC-Central thanks Tom Bast Sports for celebrating the ASDC-Central Athlete of the Month recipients by the provision of commemorative apparel for each recipient.
