The Raptors 905 have officially announced on Wednesday August 15th their finalized coaching staff, and Dream Chaserzzz founder/head trainer Justin Alliman will be serving as a mentor coach for the 2018-2019 season alongside two-time Olympian Tamara Tatham.
Raptors 905 Head Coach Jama Mahlalelah will be mentoring Alliman and Tatham, and they will continue to coach and develop Canadian talent. Working with the Raptors 905 will not only allow Alliman to apply his coaching skills with top class athletes, his coaching skillset will continue to grow as he learns under a mentorship consisting of collaboration, feedback and dialogue.
Alliman adds this experience to his already-impressive coaching resume; he was the player development coach for the National Basketball League of Canada team "Mississauga Power". He has worked with over one hundred world class athletes who have played in the WNBA, NBL, Canadian Senior National teams both Mens and Women's, NBA and NBA Summer League. He also currently works for the NBA as a Jr. NBA coach in Asia, where he has worked with over 60,000 athletes.
Alliman states on his new role: “I hope to be able to develop as many players as possible; helping them to become full-time NBA caliber players, while ultimately bringing home another championship for the team.” This new endeavor is another testament to the caliber and skill-level of the Dream Chaserzzz brand, and shows that Canadian talent development is in good hands.
