A Canada Basketball Partnership

Basketball Nova Scotia’s Junior and Senior Academy Programs are created in partnership with Canada Basketball as part of our Targeted Athlete Strategy (TAS). The Academies serve as an introduction into Canada Basketball’s Athlete Development Pathway. Through excellent coaching and programming, our goal is to provide athletes aged 10 – 17 with an opportunity to train and develop with us. Over the course of the weekend training sessions, athletes will work with targeted coaches that have had success at multiple levels and have shown dedication with our provincial program.

Our 2021 Junior & Senior Academy programs are not operating at this time.

Note that due to staffing changes at Basketball Nova Scotia, we do not have capacity to operate our usual Junior & Senior Academy programs in September 2021. Updates will be shared with past registrants, club presidents and on our social media channels, as available. You can also scroll to the bottom of the page to sign up for our Newsletter for the most up to date information.

Please keep scrolling for information on what our programs look like in a normal year and we hope to be back again soon!

Thank you in advance for your understanding.
