SNYB is designed to provide young athletes with fun, high-quality, and developmentally appropriate basketball training, programming, and coaching as part of a holistic approach to long-term athlete development.
The SNYB curriculum is flexible enough to adapt to the needs and resources of organizers while remaining aligned with the Sport Canada Long-Term Athlete Development [LTAD] Model, the standard for athlete training programs at all levels of Canadian sport.
The All Girls session is a fun packed learning environent where girls of all skill levels can feel comfortable.
