Who We Are
My name is Michael Acheampong. I am a coach and program director of Flight basketball academy here in Victoria, British Columbia. I started my collegiate career at Humber College; Humber is well known for its prestigious varsity programs. I played three successful years for the Hawks (2008-2011). I accomplished something rarely seen in college sports: winning OCAA Provincial championships in my three years at Humber. During the 2009-10 season, I led the Hawks to a CCAA Bronze medal. I have been named an OCAA all-star twice and was the 2011 OCAA championship most valuable player. I was inducted into the Humber College Hall of Fame a few years later. I transferred to pursue my collegiate playing career at the University of Victoria (2011-2013). I had two successful seasons where I was a starter on a top ten team in the nation both years. The team qualified for nationals both years and, in my last year, played in the conference final, where the team just fell short of gold. After my collegiate career, I tested the professional circuit by trying out for the G-league team Canton Charge, NBL of Canada, and going on a pro tour where I played games in China. I signed my first pro contract in 2017, playing in the NBL of Canada for the Windsor Express. I have been coaching and running individual and group training for a few years now with the primary goal of sharing my passion and growing the game of basketball on the island.
