As information has been released, we have now received the Return To Play Guidelines from both Canada Basketball and more importantly Basketball Nova Scotia. If you would like to review this information, we have attached the documents to the right.
While this information is a positive sign, this is only the first step. The documents provide a guide as to what guidelines all basketball organizations will be required to follow for resuming basketball programs. Please understand that Tri City Vipers Basketball does run our programs through the Halifax Regional Centre for Education (HRCE) as well as many Universities and Colleges. Unfortunately, at the moment the schools have not been reopened and thus we are not able to resume programming until this happens.
As a guide, please review the Return to Play documents to the right to understand what basketball might look like when we return. We are working actively to develop plans so that when we resume we have followed the required provincial guidelines. What we are confident in saying is that playing basketball in the form we previously did will not be the case.
Basketball will most likely start off with a form of individual and small group training all while practicing physical and social distancing. Once we have a timeline to resume play, we will ensure that we provide our own Return To Play Guidelines to ensure the safety of all participants, parents, staff and related members.
Once we have more information, we will release this information and email all participants.
Tri City Vipers Basketball stands and supports our Black Community and for all those who support anti-racism. My goal is to ensure that every area of our organization and everyone who participates, works, volunteers or supports our programs adheres to these values and works to ensures everyone is safe from this systemic injustice.
But saying this is not enough. Action has to be taken to ensure that equality for all is an integral part of TCVB's impact in the local community.
To the Black Community - we see you, we will support you and will fight for equality for all. You matter and your lives matter.
We must do more and it is my goal to help fight this systemic inequality.

WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2020-21 SEASON FOR ALL LEVELS OF BASKETBALL. THE SUCCESSFUL CANDIDATES WILL BE REVIEWED BY THE EXECUTIVE. THE EXECUTIVE IF NECESSARY, WILL CONDUCT INTERVIEWS WITH CANDIDATES TO HELP CHOSE THE APPROPRIATE CANDIDATE FOR EACH TEAM.
ALL RETURNING COACHES MUST APPLY AS WELL
There is no specific date for closing of taking applications but teams will be filled and announced when there has been suitable selections made. If there are multiple coaches applying for head coach role for one age level, executive members will conduct interviews to determine successful coaching applicants.
Coaching any sport can be an extremely rewarding experience but it also can be one of the most challenging. It is important that all Viper coaches understand the expectations and commitments placed on them when they apply and agree to coach one of our teams.
Reminder that taking your NCCP course but not getting certified is the same as not taking it all. We highly recommend getting certification done as these will play into the selection process.
THE LINK TO THE APPLICATION FORM WILL BE IN THE TITLE ABOVE.
