Providing a positive global impact — utilizing the sport of basketball as a vehicle to connect with, and empower communities around the world.

“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination.”

– Nelson Mandela

Canada is establishing itself as a global power in basketball, and North Pole Hoops is proud support the efforts of the entire basketball community from coast-to-coast, while contributing to a thriving culture through dynamic multi-media platforms, and highlighting the country’s finest talent.


Founded in 2011 by brothers Tariq and Elias Sbiet, North Pole Hoops has evolved into a leading resource for Canadian basketball prospects from coast-to-coast, based on a foundation of passion and persistence, while striving to always maintain the best interest of youth and the game.

North Pole Hoops’ birth was inspired by a lack of opportunity and exposure; Canadian basketball has always produced quality talent for over a half century, however our country was lacking the recognition it deserves for young talent to thrive at the highest levels of the game.

Today, Canada boasts the most talent in the NBA (outside of USA) at 24 players, with an inevitable incline for years to come.
