The Northern Kings Junior Academy is our program for new and developing players aged 4 to 12, helping young ballers learn the FUNdamentals of the game in an active and friendly environment. 


Players ages 4-6 will focus on building confidence with 3 FUNdamentals of the game in our weekly “Pass, Catch, and Shoot” classes. Hammering home these fundamentals helps beginners focus on the 3 core skills needed for basketball and other sports while building a genuine love for the game.

Players ages 7-12 will participate in our “NK Jr Academy House League”. This program is a great starting point for beginners, helpful for developing talent, and a bonus for enthusiastic players.
