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.
