Jr. NBA

New Jr. NBA Session is now FULL.


Next session will be FALL 2017. Registration for it will open in September.

.

Jr. NBA Level 1 is available again for the spring

This is a program run in partnership with NBA Canada. We are 1 of only 50 Basketball Clubs across all of Canada who have this opportunity.

.

Program has been written by Youth Sport Specialists and covers the development of all Fundamental Movement Skills (running, jumping, throwing, catching) and Basketball Skills (footwork, dribbling, passing, shooting) that are appropriate for the age level.

.

The program is 12 sessions long and will run on Saturday mornings/afternoons.

The sessions will run at St. John Paul II CS, 75 Pebblecreek Drive, Kitchener

The sessions will run from 10:00 am - 12:00 noon.

The first session will be on Saturday, February 11, 2017.  ** NOTE CHANGE IN DATE**

.

The first hour will be the predetermined practice from NBA Canada. There will then be 30 minutes of fun "basketball' games and in the final 30 minutes parents will be invited onto the court to play and work with their children in an unstructured manner.

Spring sessions only run in the morning (10:00 - 12:00) unless there are more than 20 applications.

.

Registration for this program this year will be $160 and each child will receive a Spalding basketball and a Jr. NBA T-shirt and Insurance coverage through the OBA.

.

This is a limited program (NBA Canada's rule). At this time, only 20 players/session will be registered on a first-come, first served basis.
