Questions can be sent to: email@example.com
What is the refund policy if the program is cancelled or changed due to COVID-19 protocols?
We commit to refund clubs for all games that did not take place.
Why isn’t there a U12 program?
We did explore this idea. Although, after careful thought and review with our league committee, it was decided that our U12 and below age groups are encouraged to participate in other sports throughout the summer. Basketball Nova Scotia’s Team Scotia program begins at U14, so we wanted to align this program with our regular summer programming.
