Development Program

The Development Program introduces basketball to boys and girls ages 6 to 9, and offers house leagues for players ages 10-11 who are new to the sport or want to play recreationally:

Children who have never played are welcome. The emphasis is on teaching fundamental basketball skills such as dribbling, shooting, layups, passing, receiving, defending, footwork, and agility.

The Development Program is held on Saturdays at schools in Barrhaven (or Nepean generally). Each session is 90 minutes long. The season runs from late September/early October until the end of March. Gym allocations may change from season to season.

Volunteers are essential. See Volunteer, including a link to the Coaching Volunteer Form for 2024-25.
