BOND WOMEN'S BASKETBALL PROGRAM
Bond Academy Women’s Basketball program cultivates and mentors student-athletes within the Greater Toronto Area and beyond. We utilize a holistic approach to providing intense training for inspiring female athletes who have a desire to play basketball at the U Sports or NCAA level.
Our Academy demonstrates a strong commitment for continued progression by encouraging on-court skills development and providing exposure to post-secondary recruitment services that offer athletes an opportunity to display their talents. Our program is structured to challenge and motivate female athletes to demonstrate elite performance and enhance their skills to succeed in a college/university environment.
The Academy empowers mental strength and female leadership. It is our mandate to create a safe environment where skill and performance are at the highest level. With an experienced coaching staff who are well-informed of the intricacies of training female athletes, our program is specifically designed to develop female basketball players. The athletes will be exposed to elite leagues (i.e. OSBA) and participate in Canadian and US tournaments and showcases. Through our recruiting services, our partnerships with U Sports, OCAA and NCAA, our program has helped create opportunities for athletes to continue to play basketball at a post-secondary level.
