September 2, 2021 - Program Update
The first two sessions of the CB Academy will serve as an evaluation period for athlete consideration.
ABA will post the names of all athletes being invited to the program on the specific pages by the following timelines:
Athletes must be registered for tryouts and conflicts communicated to ABA by Wednesday, September 15th. ABA will not accept walk-up registrations.
Please notify the ABA office at firstname.lastname@example.org if there is a scheduled conflict that may prevent an athlete from attending the first week’s session. Athlete’s will not be considered for the second session if they have not notified the ABA office in advance.
New for 2021, ABA is pleased to announce our Canada Basketball Academy which will be held in Calgary and Edmonton. Athletes will be invited to register for program tryouts on September 19 via the ABA website for the Calgary and Edmonton locations.
There will be 18 athletes per age group and location, selected from the tryouts to participate in the Canada Basketball Academy.
Program session dates are posted below and in the final week all program participants will be invited to attend the Canada Basketball Western ID Session, registration details to follow.
The Canada Basketball (CB) Academy is aligned with the Team Alberta Provincial Program, Canada Basketball's Cadet & Junior National Team programs as well as with Canada Basketball’s player development curriculum. There will be two age groups, 18U (2004, 2005, 2006) and 15U (2007, 2008, 2009). These age groupings will coincide with the athlete identification process for the 2022 Canada Basketball 15U and 17U Boys and Girls National Championships and the 18U Canada Summer Games. The CB Academy will focus on athletes skill development, decision making, and playing in the four phases of the game: offense, defence, offensive and defensive transition.
The 2021 CB Academy will be the first step in ABA’s pathway to identify athletes for the 2022 Team Alberta Program. The pathway will include participation in the TAS Program, Western Canada ID Camp, TAB Open ID and Assessment Camps.
Program format will be dependent upon each region and will be based on athlete participation.
