Kindergarten to Grade 1

No experience required! This entry-level program introduces children in kindergarten to grade 1 to basketball in a fun, active and healthy learning environment. In partnership with NBA Canada, the Jr. NBA Rookie Division program offers 10 weeks of fun drills and modified games created by NBA approved basketball experts. The goal through this program is to build a community of league organizers, parents, and coaches committed to minor basketball.

Weekly practices are 45 minutes in duration and run by volunteer instructors who have been trained through NBA Canada. Equipment and activities are modified to be age-appropriate…and fun! 

Note: This program is run at various elementary schools across Surrey and North Delta.

Volunteer Instructors Needed! 

Volunteer with us and make a difference in the life of a child. All of our Jr. NBA sessions are run by volunteers.  Child protection is also very important to us–all sessions have to have at least two volunteers in full compliance before the first session date. 

Thank you to all of the dedicated volunteers who make our programs possible. We are a charity dedicated to strengthening the foundations of community, and you are a special part of making that happen!
