The Canadian basketball scene will have a new look for 2021. Over the last 10 years, Prep basketball has evolved and changed the landscape, playing an integral role in the overall growth of high school basketball. Both the National Junior Circuit (NJC) and National Senior Circuit (NSC) have successfully brought the country together using their successful circuit model and attracting 60+ teams from across the country.
In response to the increasing demand and appetite for elite-level competition and the desire to develop our talent in Canada, the NATIONAL SENIOR CIRCUIT PLATINUM (NSC Platinum) circuit will build on this success of their affiliated circuits and seek to include all the top Prep programs in Canada. The NSC PLATINUM has lofty ambitions and will be looking to include Prep programs from the U.S.A. as well.
2021 NSC PLATINUM Session dates:
January 8-10 – Ridley College (St. Catharine’s, ON)
February 19-21 – CTA (Ottawa, ON)
March 12-14 – TRC (Brantford, ON)
April 9-11 – TBD (GTA)
The NSC PLATINUM will be the premium circuit to showcase top Prep programs from across Canada and the U.S. It will be a platform where the best players can compete against their peers at an exceedingly high level. The games will be streamed with commentary and high-quality scouting and evaluation. It will host (3) preliminary weekends starting in January 2021 and will culminate with the NSC PLATINUM National Championship tournament in April 2021.
The NSC PLATINUM will be announcing programs over the coming weeks.

Drew Ebanks: NSC PLATINUM Commissioner – On Point Basketball
Leo Rautins: Former NBA 1st round draft pick, NBA Analyst

The NSC PLATINUM weekend events will become a staple and standard so that student-athletes can compete against elite competition and amass the exposure necessary to attract attention from top NCAA, U-Sports and CCAA programs.
“Drew and I are excited to champion the NSC PLATINUM circuit. Over the last couple of years we collaborated to launch the NJC and NSC and have successfully established them as the top Junior and Senior High School circuits in the country. The growth of basketball in Canada has been phenomenal and we are confident that the NSC PLATINUM will attract and showcase some of the best basketball talent in North America.”
