COMPETITIVE PROGRAM

The Tri City Vipers Basketball Club provides a Competitive Program for players interested in an increased level of competitive basketball. The Tri City Vipers program, with its dedicated volunteer coaches, helps develop the player’s basketball and athletic skills to allow them to compete at a higher level of basketball.

  • Tri City Vipers competitive teams compete against other competitive teams as a part of the Metro Basketball Association (MBAns). Teams will practice in local gyms and have games throughout the city.  Teams  will also take part in local and out of province tournaments. While all practices and games are scheduled in advance, there can be school board cancellations or game changes on occasion during the season.

  • At the Tri City Vipers U10 (ages 8-9) and U12 (ages 10-11) levels, the emphasis in on development and enjoying the sport of basketball. Coaches focus on developing fundamentals and athleticism while ensuring fair play and sportsmanship. Teams practice twice a week and will travel throughout the season. Games played against other competitive teams provide opportunities for the players to learn and grow their understanding of the sport. The practices and games create a “team” atmosphere where players and friendships develop and grow.

  • Our Tri City Vipers U14 (ages 12-13), U16 (ages 14-15) and U18 (ages 16-18) teams will practice 2-3 times per week in local gyms (Halifax, Dartmouth, Fairview, Clayton Park),  and will travel to tournaments throughout the season. Through a higher level of competition, players will learn, develop and grow with their team while increasing their basketball skills and knowledge. 

  • All competitive team Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches are NCCP trained and certified, providing players will knowledgeable and qualified coaches.

  • Tryouts for our competitive teams begin in August. The schedule is posted on our website at the beginning of August. Players will be notified by email of the tryout schedule, it will be posted on the Tri City Vipers Basketball Club's website. Please note that changes to the schedule can occur and players need to check the schedule regularly.

  • The Tri City Vipers Basketball Club is dependant on gym time supplied by our schools. Therefore, if a school is closed for holidays or a school event, we do not have access to that school. The main holiday closings would be Christmas and March Break along with holiday long weekends such as Thanksgiving, Easter, Family Day etc. On some occasions, short notice is given so the Tri City Vipers Basketball Club will make every effort possible to work with our coaches to re-schedule canceled practices.
