The National Preparatory Association (NPA) is spearheaded by North Pole Hoops (NPH) in conjunction with 11 character prep programs across the country. Each program has a high quality make up which includes 10-20+ years in contributions to Canadian basketball, quality personnel and a proven track record.
The NPA is a transparent, inclusive league designed to provide structure within amateur Canadian basketball at an elite level, while building culture for the game across the country. The NPA will change Canadian basketball forever, providing student-athletes an opportunity to play high level hoops on home soil, with an emphasis on development on and off the floor.
Academic excellence is what the NPA strives for and the NPA will take pride in enforcing the academic standard, to ensure a high NCAA / CIS eligibility rate.
League games and tournaments will be played all over the country, providing student-athletes an opportunity to build long-lasting experiences and memories, while learning about Canada.
The NPA will take flight this fall beginning the inaugural season November 2016. The league will take place from November to February with an NCAA March Madness style National Championship in March. Win and advance.
With Canadian basketball continuing to elevate to new heights, a NATIONAL entity of this calibre is a necessity—a national basketball league operated with INTEGRITY where student-athletes are the top priority.
