Excel Basketball Academy


Excel Basketball Academy encourages youth development in our community (Calgary, Alberta) by providing opportunities to participate in basketball in a safe, fun and respectful environment, regardless of social or economic circumstances.

Excel Basketball Academy (EBA) began organically in 2014 by providing camp services to children and youth who wanted to improve their basketball skills and develop their character as individuals.

The Academy focuses on basketball fundamentals, which are key to player development and long term growth as a player, as well as developing players as leaders on their teams and in the community. We are proud to have established community partnerships to ensure that any child who wishes to participate has the ability to do so as our goal is to help build strong kids and communities through basketball and leadership.

Success Factors of EBA:
