our story: Where it all started...

B-Ballerz Athletic Academy (BBAA) is designed to develop FUNdamental movement, sport and athletic skills using Canada Basketball’s Long Term Athlete Development Model (LTAD).

Co-owners, Erfan and Celine Nasajpour, met on the court and credit basketball for bringing them together through an incredible journey, to ultimately become excellent role models for their own children and the entire York Region community. 

“Basketball has paved the way for who we are as individuals, as a couple and as business owners. Basketball took us away from distractions and opened the doors to pursue our dreams! This is why we are so passionate about empowering kids through this sport and educating them about opportunities that will benefit their entire lives!”
