Introducing the NLBA Academy Program

The Newfoundland and Labrador Basketball Association is excited to announce its new development plan for elite basketball athletes and coaches in the province. Launching with tryouts this September the NLBA will introduce the NLBA Academy Program. The Academy will consist of two pathways, the Elite Academy and Select Academy. The academies will replace the BOB program and give the best players in the province the opportunity to come together and train over 5 targeted week-ends during the year. The academies will be led on the male side by Blair White and on the female side by Geoff Moore and are open to all athletes between the ages of 13-17. Athletes will train under the lead trainers, provincial coaches and guest coaches. This will provide our best players with exposure to the best coaches in the province to train within the newly created NLBA curriculum.

The combined package will help drive basketball in the province to the highest possible level for our coaches and athletes. By moving the academies to a weekend format it will enable coaches and athletes from across the province to participate and help spread development opportunities outside the Avalon as well as providing valuable exposure to athletes outside the city that want to grow their game and represent their province.

Details regarding the NLBA Academy Program and registration information will be released next week.

Any questions please contact Doug Partridge @ or call @ 576-3425 Fax: 576-8787.

Chris Boucher "Grind Now, Shine Later"

NBA Canada has launched a 12 minute short film on June 18th on Chris Boucher. A player's path to the NBA is often years in the making, which makes Montreal-native Chris Boucher's story that much more incredible. From an undiscovered talent at age 19 to the first international player signed to a two-way contract with the reigning NBA Champions, Golden State Warriors, this underdog story reaches peaks as high as Sports Illustrated covers and challenges surmounted by gritty determination. These stories help define our national basketball program, and make NBA dreams for tomorrow's stars within tangible reach.
