basketball team


Higher Training Basketball Academy is excited to announce that we are hosting a team tryout.

This tryout will be for students in grades 6-8.


The goal of developing this basketball program is to provide an atmosphere for players to develop their skills and continue building their own basketball experiences. Ultimately, our goal is to teach athletes how to become winners within sport and in life.


League games & format:


During this pandemic, we are seeking tournaments that the team can participate in. We have elected to not participate in Ontario Basketball Association this year until there is further clarity related to COVID-19.


The general format for the season will be weekly individual skill development practices and a team practice every Sunday from 7:30 – 9pm. Practices will take place at the Burlington Fitness and Racquet Club. 1233 Dillon Road, Burlington, Ontario.


The Academy will be fielding two teams. One in grades 6 which is our Jr. development team and then our grade 7-8 team. The Jr. Development program is meant to prime athletes over the 3 years to set players up for success before heading into high school.


Team and individual practice:


Practices will be focused on:


Shooting, learning read and reaction drills, rebounding, dribbling, developing mental toughness, advanced dribbling, footwork, and developing conditioning. Ultimately our coaches encourage our athletes to always believe that they can achieve the results that the athlete desires.
