This year was the best as it all ended with a National Championship for our province!!! It was such a cool feeling to win gold in front of our home crowd, with all my family and friends watching.
Our coaches pushed us all summer and made us believe we could win it all. I will never forget this Summer! Thanks to BNS for giving me this opportunity. I will always rep NS wherever I go with basketball.
Each player was a top player from their community working together with other top players from different areas sharing a common goal of team success. It was always enjoyable to see in-season opponents now be teammates and friends for a summer. I have formed many great relationships from coaching with BNS from with players and parents.
I always felt fully supported by BNS with every team I coached which helped make my experiences very enjoyable and stress free. Not only did BNS help me with coaching certification, they gave me opportunities with age groups from UU17 to help mold me into the coach I am today.
Whether it is playing or coaching for BNS, representing your province will be something you truly do not regret.
I feel that BNS offers a great opportunity to young basketball players and coaches in my home province! I believe that BNS Coaches and Staff members are very hard working, passionate, knowledgeable people, and continue to do their best to not only promote and help our young players, but the wonderful game of basketball as well!
I would recommend to any young player that if given the opportunity, they should try-out for one of the BNS teams. BNS offers the only chance for a young player to compete for their province in a National Championship event, as well as the chance to gain great exposure.
I am very proud of my association through the years with BNS, and believe that without the opportunities that were given to me by this Provincial body, I may not be where I am today! Thank you very much BNS for all that you have done for me over a number of years, and I wish you the very best moving forward!
There were lots of challenges along the way but through it all BNS continued to support our mission of capturing a national title which our U17 boys team did in August What an exciting and rewarding way to cap off our BNS experience!
