"Awesome!! This is my Daughters first time attending the summer clinic and had an absolutely fantastic time. Alex is so wonderful teaching basketball skills in a fun and encouraging way. He is great at letting the kids know where they can improve and how to do so in an age appropriate manner. The days were very well planned out. No one leaves the Clinic without learning something from Alex! I would strongly recommend True North basketball  to anyone with children who wish to become better ball players; you will not regret it!!!"

"True North Basketball Academy ran a fantastic and fun basketball program for our grade 3 to grade 6 classes during our physical education classes over the past 3 weeks.  Our students were introduced to an enjoyable, innovative way to learn the fundamentals of basketball with the hope of enticing students to continue on their basketball journey.  Coach Alex was very approachable, kind, motivating, and professional from day one in our building.  He exudes a passion for sport and finds value in making learning the skills fun.  The students were left wanting more and our school community was grateful for this opportunity!
