Basketball Manitoba is proud to partner with Canada Basketball to offer
a fantastic youth basketball programming initiative to residents across
Manitoba!  The Steve Nash Youth Basketball Program (SNYB) is a national youth basketball program designed to develop fundamental
skills, sportsmanship and a love of the game for basketball. This
grassroots initiative supports and empowers community-based
recreational groups and facilities, schools and other institutions
across Canada in an effort to positively influence youth through
basketball. The goal of the program is to allow participants the
opportunity to maximize their potential, while promoting the importance
of youth basketball as a vehicle to build character, discipline,
self-esteem and sportsmanship.


The model for Steve Nash Youth Basketball was established after
extensive research of existing community basketball programs from
across North America and follows the guidelines of Sport Canada’s Long
Term Athlete Development Model (LTAD). The program is flexible in
nature to allow local organizers to adapt the program and implement it
in their community while following the principles and philosophies of
the program.
