Sanctioned Events

Programs we

Our Sanctioning Policy is available to non-affiliates of Basketball Nova Scotia. It’s aimed at establishing & enforcing proper & inclusive standards and ensuring basketball environments are safe for our vulnerable persons. We realized a gap in information sharing around basketball events coming into the province of Nova Scotia. Members of our basketball community were looking for guidance around the validity of camps, clinics and programs. This policy is aimed to alleviate that issue. We are committed to vetting Nova Scotia basketball programs with the ultimate goal of ensuring athletes are participating in safe, positive basketball environments.

Benefits to becoming a Sanctioned Event include:

  • BNS Insurance
  • Access to BNS promotions via social media, emails and our website
  • Access to BNS policies & proceudres including our disciplinary committee
  • Funding through the PSO funding streams 
  • and MORE!

We hope that our affiliates and members see value in our Sanctioned Events. We want the ability to grow our product offering and ensure basketball programs are safe and fun!
