I'll give my two cents..

I believe the NBIAA and BNB need to work together for basketball. They are two separate entities, which would be frustrating in communities. Correct me if I am wrong, but to register for BNB, you must have all your info during the NBIAA season. BNB also doesn't want affiliation with the school, which I think just absorb.

Also, I am assuming some people may not know this, but the Governments cut basketball Canada's budget 500,000$ from last year. Right now the budget has been cut to 700,000 $. They have had to cut developing programs such as NEDA, and believe me more cuts are coming all around basketball in Canada. I do like the ideas of bringing in coaches, but right now, it comes down to volunteers, and coaches advancing their knowledge and starting kids in communities at young ages.


I also agree with a public forum approach, of course moderated, or in person. Whichever works, I mean discussion is discussion, people who are honestly concerned will make their voice heard publicly and privately, it will not effect them.

Their is a reason that they set 2020 to be a powerhouse, which I am hoping they will attain. For now it has to be a collective effort for people to step up within their communities, gain knowledge and share it.

I think BNB has less problem being affiliated with NBIAA then the other way around. I'm not certain of this, but I would assume it's for insurance reasons.

very good points . it seems to me and im sure others that if the resorces for basketball in canada are getting smaller then we need to rid our programs of duplication and having NBIAA and BNB working closer together would do that , same data base , players coaches officals , sponsership , volunteers, it just seems to make more sense to have them both working together .

While I think it would be nice if BNB and NBIAA could work together on certain issues more easily (and same could said for any of the sports bodies in the province I'm sure), I don't think you can have them as one entity.

BNB's priority is the development of basketball in the province. The NBIAA's priority is not basketball or even sport development it is management of interscholastic sports in the province under the direction of schools and administrators.

The priorities and underlying purposes of these two groups mean that while they could work together in certain areas they need to exist as seperate entities.

does BNB still put on basketball camps at the request of comunities and organizations , i know they have in the past, if they do then i think its up to us who are involved in the sport to see to it that there isnt an open week anywhere , in the summer i mean and try to clump a few camps together in surrounding comunities so that everyone that wants to atend can and if there is a few kids that want to travel to anothe comunity to attend all the better , it would help develope players and give new players a leg up in there first year . any thoughts on this ? of course a good volunteer base is needed to pull that off.

should be doable. if teams just start early enough might even get into summerfest. plus there are some good outdoor courts around the prov. nothing like ashfalt to toughen up a player. who knows might get some players a look with new skills
