CB Academy Tryouts Postponed

On September 15, the Government of Alberta declared a State of Public Emergency and announced new temporary public health measures to protect the health system and reduce the transmission of COVID-19.

In response to this, facility access has been suspended at this time. 

As a result, ABA will be postponing the Canada Basketball Academy tryouts to the following weekend of September 26, 2021.

Alberta Basketball will be reviewing the impact of new enacted measures from the Government of Alberta to prepare guidance for next steps forward. 

Please stay tuned, ABA will provide more information as it becomes available.

We look forward to getting back on the court again as soon as it is safe to do so.

 

Sincerely,

The ABA Staff

CB Academy Program Announcement

ABA is proud to announce the details of the Canada Basketball Academy for the Fall 2021.

Please see the information below:
 

Overview

New for 2021, ABA is pleased to announce our Canada Basketball Academy which will be held in Calgary, Edmonton and Lethbridge. Athletes will be invited to register for program tryouts on September 19 via the ABA website for the Calgary and Edmonton locations. Lethbridge athletes please use the additional portal to register.

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 Camp, registration details to follow.

 

Program Description

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 2021 CB Academy will be an introduction to ABA’s athlete identification pathway 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.

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.

Program format will be dependent upon each region and will be based on athlete participation.
