Dry land training was a success with several weeks of hard work at earl bales park. Running ski hills, stairs, and kettle balling in the park were just some of the challenges we had. Be sure to check out the youtube channel, the Facebook fan page or the twitter page for Toronto Terror to see what kind of work is needed to join the team!
Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard!
Menelik began coaching in 2013 at his alma mater Lawrence Park C.I.. He helped guide the junior team to a 9-3 record and became known for his intense focus on conditioning and fundamental play. Menelik moved into coaching at the rep level in the OBA coaching two teams simultaneously, one as a head coach and one as an assistant. Improving 2 divisions from the previous year’s coach with one team and earning a bronze medal at the division 1 level with the other.
As a player, Menelik always exceeded his own physicality and was known to play a very cerebral game. He was a captain of his high school teams all the way through and led his team to a finalist spot in the T.S.S.A.A in 1999. As a rep player Menelik played on the talented Scarborough Roadrunners team and earned a silver medal at the division 1 level, playing in AAU showcases and attending many camps in the states at renowned division one schools such as Michigan, Georgetown, and Robert Morris.
After high school, although having been recruited by some division 2 schools, Menelik choose to earn a degree in Psychology from York University here in Toronto. Although he didn’t play beyond high school he always kept that competitive drive from sport in the world of real estate sales where he is the creator and president of Triple L Realty Inc., Brokerage.
In 2014, Menelik decided to create the Toronto Terror Basketball Association, a nonprofit, out of a desire to share the knowledge that he picked up from his own basketball experience and to help continue to give the youth of Toronto an opportunity to play at a high level.
