Philosophy and Goals
The Scarborough Basketball Association (SBA) is a registered non-profit organization that is run, and coached, by unpaid volunteers.
We believe in putting athletes first and winning second.
Since 1996, 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 players’ 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 by encouraging our coaches to continually improve 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 continues to give back to the community via the assisted improvement of school gyms. In partnership with the Toronto District School Board and the Toronto Catholic Separate School Board, we have helped fund the purchases of scoreboards, protective mats, and the refinishing of gym floors at both David and Mary Thomson CI and Pope John Paul II CSS. Not only do our athletes benefit from the use of these gyms, but so do the students that attend these schools.
