CAPITAL COURTS GIRL’S ACADEMY
Capital Courts Training Centre has been instrumental in the training and development of many young female athletes in the Ottawa region and surrounding communities. To enable the continued progress and growth of this specific group of athletes, Capital Courts is taking the next step with the opening of Capital Courts Academy hosted at Cairine Wilson Secondary School in Orleans, Ontario.
Starting in August 2017, the Academy is set to provide student-athletes with a one-stop training environment on par with the top preparatory programs in North America. Twelve female athletes will have the opportunity to participate in a comprehensive high-level program that will support both academic and basketball goals. We have been welcomed into Ontario Scholastic Basketball Association and we believe that we have the right developmental resources to bolster what is already considered the top high school league in the country.
We will be rolling out an initiative to ensure there is maximum community involvement in the Academy. We plan on working closely with the Cairine Wilson student body, local clubs, provincial/national and international basketball organizations to bring a new level of excitement to the national capital region.
