The Academy

The Academy program is the cornerstone of CYDC.   Coordinated by John Hegwood and his coaching staff, Academy is designed for players to focus on the development of their individual basketball skills.  Players can expect high intensity training in multiple basketball scenarios.


  • The Academy emphasizes progressive skill development and mastery for boys and girls grades 3-12.
  • Academy sessions are conducted by CYDC coaches who provide progressive guidance and mentoring to the athletes.
  • CYDC uses station training in large gymnasiums to maximize the impact to the athlete and to provide a variety of skill development opportunities each session.
  • Academies are 90 minute sessions conducted Mondays through Fridays, September through June.
  • Academy sessions are usually scheduled at Master's Academy (4414 Crowchild Trail).
  • Academies are usually from 6:30pm-8:00pm or 8:00pm-9:30pm.
