North Pole Hoops is the leading private entity devoted entirely to the promotion, exposure and advancement of Canadian basketball in the world. For more than a decade, it has been at the forefront covering the explosion of the talent never before seen from Canada. Canada has more NBA players than any country outside of the United States. There are over 250 Canadian men and women playing in the NCAA and even more at various other levels of post secondary basketball south of the border. Canada’s Senior Women’s National team is currently ranked 4th in the world while the men’s program is looking to earn their first Olympic berth in over 20-years.
On top of the Raptors 2019 NBA Championship, the Raptors905 are former G League Champions and play out of Mississauga, Ontario while airing on Sauga 960. The Canadian Elite Basketball League is entering it’s third season and features rosters that are 70% Canadian and at the grassroots level, more kids are playing the game than any other sport.
