Excel Basketball Academy is a Surrey club basketball program originally co-founded by Emily Wright and Dan Nayebzadeh. We are a community based, player-focused basketball academy that strives to develop young athletes both on and off the court. We want to help the athletes achieve their ultimate dream of playing basketball at the highest level and reach their full potential. We believe by helping athletes develop a “growth mindset“ we can positively influence their ability to persevere in times of duress and push themselves outside of their comfort-zone. We believe in the TRUST model which stands for toughness, respectful, unselfish, selfless-service and team-focused attitude. Our goal is to influence the athletes positively by Cultivating Character through basketball.
