Steve Nash Youth Basketball is Canada's national youth basketball initiative designed to develop fundamental skills, sportsmanship and a love of the game for basketball.
The Northside Minor Basketball Association hopes to really kickstart that initiative this fall with its first inclusion of the Nash program.
This grassroots program will support and empower minor associations, schools and local service clubs across New Brunswick in an effort to positively influence youth through basketball.
The goal of the program is to allow participants the opportunity to maximize their potential, while promoting the importance of youth basketball as a vehicle to build character, discipline and self-esteem.
The model for Steve Nash Youth Basketball was established after extensive research of existing community basketball programs from across North America and follows the guidelines of Sport Canada's Long Term Athlete Development Model (LTAD).
The program is flexible in nature to allow local organizers to adapt the program and implement it in their community while following its principles and philosophies.
