Basketball provides development programs and also supports programs operated by community groups and/or organizations for children from kindergarten to U14. These programs are for children who want to learn to play basketball and to continue to enjoy playing basketball at a recreational level to players who want to develop and move on to the High Performance pathway.
Development programs follow the Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) pathway.
Pre-registration is required for all Basketball BC programs.
