Philosophy and Goals
The Scarborough Basketball Association (SBA) is a registered non-profit organization, run and coached by unpaid volunteers.
We believe in putting athletes first and winning second.
Over the past 10+ years of existence, we have placed Scarborough on the basketball map in Ontario, by producing great basketball players and organizing completive tournaments.
Our Coaches are dedicated to the development of our player’s skill level as outlined in the series of publications (LTAD – Long Term Athlete Development) from Canada Basketball. This is accomplished through the use of our ‘Team Development Policy’ and improving their own knowledge of basketball by obtaining NCCP levels.
We have invested in programs such as the ‘Elite Camp’ to improve on the fundamental skills of basketball for each athlete.
SBA is continuing to give back to the community by the improvement of their gyms. In partnership with the Toronto District School Board and the Toronto Catholic Separate School Board, we have help fund the purchases of scoreboards, protective mats and refinishing of gym floors of quality gyms in David and Mary Thomson CI and Pope John Paul II CSS schools.
Not only do our athletes benefit from the use of these gyms, but, so do the students that attend these schools.
