What's New

2019-2020 Academy Tryouts

The Academy program represents an opportunity for the NLBA to put the best players in the province in front of some of best coaches. Moving to a weekend format allows athletes from across the province to access the training rather than having it restricted to just those athletes from the St. John's and Metro area. Participants will get high level skill and team instruction suitable to their skill level. The Select Academy will focus on fundamental skills and execution, more suited to those athletes who need work on individual development. In short, athletes will receive everything they need to succeed at an interprovincial level and the necessary development to provide the opportunity to play at higher levels.

Athletes ages 12 - 18
(Born in 2001 to 2007)

September 13th - 15th, 2019 Newfoundland and Labrador Sports Center
100 Crosbie Road, St. John's
Registration Fee: $50.00

For more details please download the Academy Tryout Brochure and registration form.

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.
