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 2023 Canada Basketball 15U and 17U Boys and Girls National Championships. The CB Academy will focus on athletes skill development, decision making, and playing in the four phases of the game: offense, defense, offensive and defensive transition.
The 2022 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.
*All registered athletes are required to have an ABA membership
