REFUNDS: Our COVID-19 Refund Policy is as follows:

  • Should the season be cancelled prior to a program’s first practice/session (before uniform and basketball distribution) BB will refund the registration fee for the program, less a $100 administrative fee.
  • Should the season be cancelled after the start of practices/games (after players have received their uniform and basketball) BB will calculate a pro-rated refund based on the number of weeks of the program missed, less a $100 administrative fee.
  • Should there be a pause in the season, where sessions have been cancelled but there is expectation that the season will resume, BB will wait until the end of the season (or the complete cancellation of the season) and then pro-rate refunds based on the number of weeks missed, less a $100 administrative fee.
  • Where refunds are calculated on a pro-rated basis, by default BB will not issue payment, but rather will issue a credit to the family’s LeagueApps account (to be used towards a future program). Refunds will be available upon request. Details on requesting a refund will be provided when notification of refund calculations are issued.

More about this program

The Jr. NBA Youth Basketball program (formerly Steve Nash Youth Basketball) is a national youth basketball initiative designed to develop fundamental skills, sportsmanship and a love for the game of basketball.

This grassroots program supports and empowers community-based recreational groups and facilities, schools and other institutions across Canada in an effort to positively influence youth through basketball. The goal of the program is to allow participants the opportunity to maximize their potential, while promoting the importance of youth basketball as a vehicle to build character, discipline and self-esteem.

The model for Jr. NBA Youth Basketball was established after extensive research of existing community basketball programs from across North America. It follows the guidelines of Sport For Life’s Long Term Athlete Development Model (LTAD), and develops basic movements skills and physical literacy.  The program also teaches “life skills” such as fair play, teamwork, commitment, and self confidence, while developing basketball specific skills, fostering friendships and promoting fair play.  It’s a fun-filled 90 minutes of movement, games and basketball.  Kids love it, and so do parents, as they quickly recognize that this is a quality program, and they see rapid growth and improvements in skills and focus.

Our Jr. NBA Program is Exceptional. Check out what parents say!

The 3v3 concept is great as it provides players more space to learn and create. This is especially great at the youth level!

John T., Dad

Great program.  Troy LOVED it.  We will be signing up for more.  Coach was fantastic.  Great management of the kids.

Jane Tumbin, Mom

Excellent program.  Jeff’s temperament, patience and control were much appreciated.  Thank you!

Paul Moore, Dad
To all parents who are considering having their kids discover and play basketball. For context, I have coached basketball before and I have seen many sports programs offered for kids. And we can all agree that not all programs are equal. But, I will say with full confidence that this Jr. NBA program as led by Head Coach Jeff is first class and 5 stars all the way. All the drills and skills have purpose, the kids are fully engaged, and Jeff being a retired teacher knows exactly how to communicate to the kids (and even us parents) 😏 but most of all, it’s a fun, welcoming, and well planned out basketball setting for all.  I highly recommend this program.

Steve Bown, Dad

Coach Jeff is phenomenal with the kids… my son thoroughly enjoyed the program, and learned the skills taught.  His passion and knowledge of the game makes him a very effective instructor.  I wasn’t just basketball… also taught them life skills.  Great rapport with the kids and parents.  Highly recommend the program.  Thanks Jeff.

Gino Camilletti, Dad

This is the 3rd session for both of my kids.  They loved coming every week and the skill improvement and progression has been amazing to watch.  Thank you coach Jeff.
