We believe with the integral leaders and enriching environments, young people possess the potential to become exemplary human beings who can thrive personally and contribute to the lives of their families, teams, schools, communities and the planet. Given this belief, we use the game of basketball as a fun, safe, and challenging platform to help young people develop their values, knowledge and skills toward the betterment of self, others and the world.
Our coaching team take a holistic approach to learning and basketball development. Our coaches hold teaching and coaching experience in primary, secondary and post-secondary education. Some of our coaches also have experience playing and coaching in the collegiate (NCAA/CIS) and professional leagues (NBA/FIBA). Our leagues and camps are designed to help players develop both their character and basketball skills – to become full circle (or 360 degree) leaders on and off the court!
We take an integrative and research based approach to learning and basketball development in which our professional and experienced coaches draw upon the following 5 pillars of learning:
Learning to know
Learning to do
Learning to be
Learning to live, work & play with others
Learning to impact team, family, society & environment
We also believe every young person (regardless of their financial status) in the community deserves an opportunity to play team sports and learn life-skills. As such, our basketball programs are available to support any player not having sufficient funds to participate through our MDT scholarship program and community resources.
360 Playing Beyond The Game Creed
The duration of a well played game is only a few minutes, while the journey for it may take many years of hard work and excellent character. Remember the real value of sport is not in winning or performing in the limelight of applause but by the virtues learned, practiced and lived within and beyond the athletic realm. The applause soon fades away, the statistics forgotten, the trophy is left behind, but the character, friendships and legacy you build are yours forever.
