Halifax Basketball Inc is a family based business and any athlete that comes through our system will be treated as such. We get to know each individual athlete and this is the key to effectively searching for the right prep schools.

Intellectual mentality and education is the utmost importance here at Halifax Basketball Inc. When an athlete’s body is no longer able to perform at it’s highest level they MUST have a something to fall back on.  We require all athletes to focus on school work just as much as training.

Integrity and respect are attributes that require no basketball skill or talent, yet are attributes that can carry you further than talent and skill alone. Respecting family at home and coaches, teachers, peers and teamates on the court or at school is the company non-negotiable.

Nobility doesn't lie in surpassing the other man but in surpassing the previous self.  As a whole,  we are a step above the rest and we treat each other in such a way that ensures everyone involved knows it.  We realize that ones best success comes after their greatest disappointments and we develop success from those failures.

If an athlete is willing to sacrifice for their dream, this shows us that they have the ability to achieve true greatness on their own and we have the means to help them get there. If an athlete is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve their dream, we will work with them to make that dream a reality. Goals require commitment, dedication, and hard work. Here at HB Inc we realize that nobody is  perfect and we are all here to help each other learn and grow, and achieve greatness together.


Naofall 'Ming' Folahan

President / CEO

Originally from (Benin) Africa, Ming grew up with a wonderful family and a passion for basketball. At an early age, Ming was head and shoulders taller than all of his friends - much like he is today.

At 16, Ming was recruited by a prep school in the States where he was nominated 'McDonald's All American' in his senior year of high school. He would ultimately land himself a full scholarship to Wagner College, where he would play for the brother duo Bobby and Danny Hurley. Bobby, an accomplished NBA player turned professional coach and Danny has coached players who would go on to win NBA championships.

Known for his legacy as 'All-Time Leading Shot Blocker at Wagner, Ming also ranked second in the country for shot blocks in his senior year. To this day, Ming still holds the record for most shots blocked in a single game.

Working just as hard off the court, Ming graduated with a degree in International Business. After trying out for NBA teams including the Knicks, Spurs, and Nuggets, he signed a professional contract to play in the NBL (Canadian Basketball League). Since his move to Canada, Ming has met his wife, Stephanie, and together have had two children. Working in his community and raising his kids, Ming realised he had a passion as strong as basketball - being a father. By combining the elements of basketball and empowering the next generation, Ming and Stephanie created Halifax Basketball Inc..

The company is devoted to making quality basketball programs available to as many kids as possible. The dedicated father of two knows firsthand the challenges parents face with raising children in today's economy, and works around the clock to reach as many children as possible.
