We are a basketball academy in Edmonton, Alberta specifically tailored to the basketball development of kids. We run programs designed for kids aged 5 to 13 years old.
Our ambition at Climb Basketball Academy is to use our acquired basketball knowledge and experience to teach foundational skills and movements in a fun and welcoming environment for boys and girls. We accomplish this goal through several teaching methodologies, including blending development with play. We place a premium on maximizing the amount of time children are actively participating in drills and activities to keep the kids engaged and allow them to learn through action.
We limit capacity of participants to prioritize a player-to-coach ratio that makes teaching functional and enhances the experience. For young kids, basketball can be a frustrating sport for when the hoops are too high and the basketballs are too big, so we hold some of our programs in gymnasiums where the hoop heights can be adjusted and we provide appropriately sized basketballs for use.
The priority of the academy is to help children improve their basketball competence, which in turn will increase their confidence and enjoyment as they move forward in the sport.
