  • Prep Basketball Overview +

    The prep basketball program at Athol Murray College of Notre Dame provides student-athletes with elite level training, competition and exposure while maintaining the balance between academic achievement, athletic development, and spiritual development. The program was founded in 2015 and was added to the list of prestigious sports programs run out of Notre Dame. With a rich history in hockey, and a countless number of athletes moving on to play at the collegiate and professional level, Notre Dame decided it was time to give that same opportunity to basketball athletes.

  • Prep Basketball 2019-2020+

    The prep team at Notre Dame travels across Canada and the United States, playing an independent schedule of 25 to 30 games each year. Games will be split between prep tournaments and events, and match ups against college and junior college teams in the region. The goal is to give basketball athletes grades 9-12 (and the year directly following their grade 12) the opportunity to compete at the highest level, and the chance to gain exposure and potential post-secondary opportunities. While on campus, student-athletes are provided with the full boarding experience. Student-athletes are housed in dorms and participate in the daily routine of classes and training. All of our athletes have unmatched access to the gym, weight room, athletic trainers/therapists, and all other training and recovery facilities on campus. The prep basketball program at Notre Dame is a great way for young athletes who are committed to being the best version of themselves to reach their ultimate goals and dreams.

Head Coach - Zach Mihalicz

Coach Mihalicz grew up in Parker, Colorado and graduated from Legend High School. He went on to accept a scholarship to play for the Cougars Men's Basketball team at the University of Regina. This was an opportunity for Mihalicz to come "home" as he was born in Regina and frequently visited Saskatchewan as a child. He played a season and a half with the Cougars before a career-ending knee injury in 2015. He remained with the team in a student management position for the following season, before going on to head coach the senior boys' team at Campbell Collegiate High School. He led Campbell to their first city championship win in 5 years and earned a berth to the provincial championships. Mihalicz also coaches with Basketball Saskatchewan, and head coached the U16 travel provincial team in the summer of 2018. Mihalicz accepted the Head Prep Basketball coaching position at Notre Dame in the summer of 2018 and is excited to continue building the basketball programs. He also looks forward to facilitating opportunities for student-athletes to play at the next level. Go Hounds!
