Halifax Prep is the first ever Basketball Prep program in the city of Halifax based in Spryfield, Nova Scotia founded in 2017 by Naofall (Ming) and Stephanie Folahan. Halifax Prep students attend J.L. Ilsley High School grades 10-12. The students are regular J.L. Ilsley students and must abide to the rules and regulations of the high school. The school is a public school with great teachers and smaller class sizes than many HRM high schools. The school provides extra help for all grades, but Halifax Prep will provide tutoring as needed to ensure our goal of 85% GPA is achieved by all students. Mandatory study hall is scheduled four days per week.

Our goal is to turn the student athletes’ weaknesses into strengths, specifically with their studies, and give them the confidence they need to be successful in the classroom.

"After decades of segregation in Nova Scotian barbershops, in 1998 Tremayne Howe opened Up Close Cuts, Halifax Nova Scotia's 1st African Canadian owned barbershop but he welcomed people of all backgrounds & nationalities. Today Tremayne Howe has teamed up with Courtney Williams and we continue the tradition of high quality work." Fademasters will be the first Halifax Prep sponsor which we lead  our players getting the best fresh and clean cut. 

Our mission is for Halifax Prep to be one of the top basketball programs in the nation, while remaining affordable and not restricting recruited players from playing due to financial reasons. The ideal outcome is for all players to be recruited by top programs at the college/university level.

The players will live in Spryfield, Nova Scotia and be contributing members of the community. Volunteer work is a must! Any community event hosted by M7NG Company that does not interfere with your school or basketball schedule you will be required to attend and participate.  Halifax prep colors are black and white and  the team's nickname is the ‘Sevens”.

Our goal is to turn the student athletes  weaknesses into strengths, specifically with their studies, and gives student-athletes the confidence they need to be successful in the classroom.
