*New* High Performance Basketball Program - Junior Boys
The Basketball PEI High Performance Program has been designed to develop basketball in PEI at a higher level. The goal of this program is to increase the amount of time kids spend developing the fundamental skills of basketball. Each participant will receive 50+ hours of high-level coaching from some of the best coaches PEI has to offer.
The Junior Boys program is aimed at males entering grades 5-9 (Under-13 & Under-15) in September 2018. In the Fall Development Program (Phase 1), each participant will receive 50+ hours of high-level coaching from some of the best coaches PEI has to offer. Following the Fall Development program, there will be an opportunity for those that took part to participate in a second phase of the program.
Participation in this program is a pre-requisite for participation in the 2019 Provincial Team Programs.
More information on the program (cost, times, and other program details) can be found on the Registration Form – Junior Boys 2018/2019.
Programs for Junior Girls (Under-13 & Under-15), Senior Boys (Under-17), and Senior Girls (Under-17) are in development. More information to come…
