The League

The Boys HL program welcomes boys from ages 8 to 18. The goals of the program are to encourage skills development, teamwork, good sportsmanship and fun. The philosophy of boys house league is equal playing time for all players.

Over 800 boys competed across five age groups in the prior season. The teams were ably coached by our volunteers, demonstrating good teamwork and competitive fun. We would like to thank all coaches, league conveners, and site conveners. For the 2020-2021 season we will offer boys house league programs in the following categories:

The Kelly Silverstein Award

Tragically, Kelly Silverstein (“Kelly”) passed away in November 2006 only a few days after being diagnosed with leukemia.

During his time at the NTBA, Kelly was a staunch and active North Toronto Basketball Association supporter, Dad of two boys in house league, house league coach for numerous years and friend of many parents/kids in our program. He epitomized what our coaches should stand for: fun, teamwork, enthusiasm, commitment, a good teacher and a healthy level of competitiveness.

At the end of each season, a plaque is awarded to one male athlete from each house league division (Atom, Bantam, Midget and Juvenile) to the player that best captures the spirit of what Kelly was about.

House League Refereeing Opportunities

In Oct 2020, a communication will be sent to older House League (HL) players regarding HL Refereeing.

Our Referee convenor will be in charge of selecting an evening in early/mid Oct 2020 when all interested players will have the opportunity to register and have a short training session.

This will apply for all players born in 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006.
