About SNYB

Updated Wednesday July 27, 2016 by Hamilton Basketball Association.


Steve Nash Youth Basketball (SNYB) is a national youth basketball program designed to develop fundamental skills, sportsmanship and a love for the game of basketball. This grassroots initiative supports and empowers community based recreational groups and facilities, schools and other institutions across Canada in an effort to positively influence youth through the great game of basketball.

The model for Steve Nash Youth Basketball was established after extensive research of existing community basketball programs from across North America. The curriculum follows the guidelines of Sport Canada’s Long Term Athlete Development Model (LTAD) and includes components that promote the importance of youth basketball as a vehicle to build life skills such as character, discipline, self esteem and sportsmanship. The program is flexible in nature to allow local organizers to adapt the program to their specific community needs while gaining valuable administrative support and materials to run a successful scheduled program.
