Frequently Asked Questions - Basketball
How do I enter the facility?
Junior Blues Steve Nash Youth Basketball classes are held at the Athletic Centre. All participants must enter through the main lobby of the facilities with a GREEN facility access pass. Please ensure that you leave enough time prior to the start of class to pick up your card on the first day. Remember that if you leave the premise for any reason and wish to re-enter thorough the main turnstiles you will need to show your green access pass.
What should my child wear and bring?
Children should wear shorts and a t-shirt/top. Warm up pants or a sweater are recommended as layers since the field house can be chilly. Running shoes and water bottle are required.
How much experience is needed?
Children at all levels are welcome. These programs focus on the fundamentals of passing, shooting and footwork to name a few.
Can classes be observed?
Yes, parents are welcome to stay and watch, space permitting. Please use caution in the field house as it is a busy environment and the track is heavily used. Remember, use of the Athletic Centre facilities and programs by adults is restricted to students and members. Parents are not permitted to work out unless they have purchased a membership or day pass.
Where can I leave my shoes, coats and other items?
We are unable to offer storage for shoes, coats and other items during your child’s program due to capacity issues in the field house. At this time we ask that parents please take all of their children’s belongings with them. If you would like to leave items at the AC please follow the signs to the main change rooms to find lockers. Thefts do occur, we recommend bringing a lock.
Basketball classes are held at the Athletic Centre. Check your receipt to ensure you know where the class is being held.
