The goal of the Junior Ravens Basketball Program is to provide junior basketball players with the opportunity to maximize their potential through age appropriate skill development for continuous improvement. The program will also give young players the chance to stay fit, develop friendships and have fun while learning techniques that will be the building blocks for more advanced learning in the future.

Program Structure

The Junior Ravens Basketball program has 2 sessions which take place in the FALL and WINTER. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer a spring program.

The 2022 WINTER PROGRAM includes:

  • Skill development sessions coached by our experienced Ravens coaches, varsity and representative players in order to foster a consistent environment for development and learning.
  • Skill development sessions will take place on Wednesday evenings where players will work on an age appropriate program to improve and reinforce skills in areas such as: ball handling, shooting, footwork, defense and team play. Game days will take place on Sunday afternoons.
  • All practices take place at Carleton University’s renowned Ravens’ Nest and Norm Fenn Gym, two of the finest basketball venues in Ottawa.
  • Each participant will receive a reversible jersey.
  • Players will be placed in groups of 10-15 people and will remain in their group for the duration of the program. 
  • Please note that parents are permitted to remain in the Ravens Nest on Sundays for game days. Unfortunately, due to COVID building capacities, parents will not be able to remain in our Norm Fenn Gymnasium on Wednesdays for practices. On Sundays in the Ravens Nest, only one parent/guardian will be permitted to remain in the gymnasium to watch their child(ren).
