“We’re a community. A family.”

Who would know better than Coach K, whose fingerprints have been all over the growth of basketball in Nova Scotia. From leading the Acadia Axemen to a U SPORTS (then CIAU) national title, to coaching the Canadian men’s national team, and of course 45+ years as head coach of the StFX X-Men. In his illustrious basketball career, Coach K helped pave the way for the game in Nova Scotia, throughout Canada, and beyond.

As we honour the past, we look to the future. Basketball continues to grow and evolve in a province that is small in numbers, but big in ambition. Through these changes, Nova Scotia Basketball continues to act as a family: learning from those that paved the way for us, like Coach K, and pushing forward to make our mark on the national basketball scene.

This is our Nova Scotia Basketball family.

Thank you to threesixfive Media Inc. for their work on bringing Coach K’s words and our vision of Nova Scotian Basketball to life in this video. This is only the tip of the iceberg of incredible basketball stories throughout our province, and we are committed to bringing you more as our basketball family grows.

Stay tuned…
