The Canterbury Basketball Rep Academy encapsulates the various facets of the junior development and representative program, which includes players from both Canterbury Basketball Association (Canterbury Metro) & North Canterbury Basketball Association (NCBA). The Canterbury Regional Basketball Foundation (CRBF) delivers the Canterbury Basketball Rep Academy on behalf of, and in conjunction with Canterbury Metro and NCBA to ensure that teams at National and Regional tournaments are the best prepared and coached to proudly represent a “Canterbury Combined” team at The National Championships, known as Waitaha.
The Canterbury Basketball Rep Academy is designed to give players the opportunity to become the best player they possibly can by providing them with the relevant skills, and technical and tactical knowledge to follow multiple pathways from club, junior national teams, college, NZNBL/WBC and international professional leagues.
The Canterbury Basketball Rep Academy understands the competing demands on an athlete and with this in mind, we work hard to integrate the school, club and representative program into a harmonised calendar so that decisions can be made that are in the best interest of the players. We apply a “player first” philosophy across all of the following levels of basketball
The first step for a player to begin their pathway is to be involved with the School and Club Competitions.
