This program is now being run through Canada Basketball. We are fortunate to be one of the clubs who have received permission to run it.
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.

KW YBA Jr. NBA - Rookie Division

500 Parkside Drive
If taking form & payment to Arena in person, know that:
We DO NOT have an office there. You will hand in your envelope to the Arena Service Counter and ask them to put it in the KW YBA mail slot. This counter is open:
5:00 pm - 9:00 pm on weekdays
9:00 am - 9:00 pm on weekends
The person working at the counter has no connection to the YBA and knows nothing about our programs.
Fee Assistance is also available for this program. Please see the Fee Assistance Applications listed under the "Registration" tab on this website.
We are looking for an interested volunteer who is willing to take on the leadership role in each session. You will become a certified FUNdamentals coach and learn how to run the sessions. This is a great step for anyone interested in coaching at higher levels. The YBA will cover the costs of this training.
We are also looking for 2 - 4 interested volunteers for each of the sessions who would like to help coach the players in these sessions. Interested parents do not need basketball experience but it would help.
You will be provided with step by step lesson plans for each of the practices.
You will have access to the Jr. NBA's Coaching website where new ideas for practices will be added throughout the year.
If you are interested, contact YBA Executive Administrator Mike Quigley at email@example.com.
