Halifax Vipers Basketball Club offers a full range of youth development programs for boys and girls whether the interest is recreational, competitive or elite level.
- A relentless focus on skill development -
Exciting Style of Play
We are a player's program and believe in "positionless" basketball. Our style of play is best described as up-tempo and with great mental and physical intensity.
We teach our players how to be effective on offense from anywhere on the court. Instead of just running plays, players learn how to play the game. With our Positionless Motion Offense, our players learn to analyze and exploit any defensive strategy.
We play aggressive man-to-man defense. Zone defense is effective at a youth basketball level but terrible for the long-term development of players and teams. Our focus is on the futures of the athletes we coach. The most successful programs at the high school and college level play man-to-man defense as their primary defensive strategy.
We believe that strength in numbers is essential to reaching our goals by creating a family setting for all our members, both parents and players. By relying on each other to motivate and become the best individual we can be, mountains of obstacles become hills and hurdles become steps forward toward greatness. At Halifax Vipers Basketball Club, we don't believe in "I", and we don't believe in "can't" for "I" paves a path towards selfishness and "can't" is the fear of failure in the pursuit of success.
By working with players to develop their strength and skills the theory is simple: if each player on a team is strong, then together they will be able to overcome each other's weakness.
We also believe it's important that all senior and/or graduating players from Halifax Vipers Basketball Club are a part of a mentoring program that allows players to come back and share their experiences learned through the sport of basketball as well as help younger players by coaching them the latest skills.
