NTBA Community Update (June 2020)

North Toronto Basketball Association (NTBA) Families & Friends,

We trust you & your family/friends are well and safe.

Consistent with COVID-19 guidance – including from the Ontario Basketball Association (https://basketball.on.ca/ontario-basketball-covid-19-update/) – all remaining NTBA 2019/2020 programs (ie Rep) have been cancelled.

This said, we continue to plan for the 2020/2021 season.

House League.  The 2020/2021 Boys (http://ntbasketball.com/boys-house-league/about/) & Girls (http://ntbasketball.com/girls-house-league/about/) HL season runs from Oct 2020 to Feb 2021.  Registration for the 2020/2021 season opened Thu Apr 2 for Returning players (and Fri Apr 24 for New players (space is limited)).

Rep.  Plans for our 2020/2021 Rep season (http://ntbasketball.com/rep-program/rep-team-coach-contact-details/) will be announced at a later date.

We thank our 2019/2020 sponsors.  Our lead sponsor this season is once again Elite Basketball Camps.  Elite Camps – established 1999 – runs basketball programs across the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and provides quality instruction by experienced coaches for male and female athletes ages 5 to 16.  For info on their latest programs please check out www.elitecamps.com.  David Dunkelman (http://www.realestatewithdavid.com/), Sister Sports (https://www.sistersports.com/) and entripy.com (https://www.entripy.com/)  have also returned as sponsors.

The NTBA is a non-profit organization that relies on coaches and organizers who contribute their time on a voluntary basis.  We are grateful to our sponsors who assist us in defraying the escalating costs of sustaining and building a high quality basketball program.  We encourage members of the North Toronto Community to patronize our sponsors and consider the sponsorship opportunities offered by the NTBA.  Please visit the sponsorship page on our web site (http://ntbasketball.com/sponsors/) for more information.

Finally – as a volunteer-led community-based not-for-profit organization – we are interested in adding new members to our “working” Board.  Board members have specific responsibilities, meet four times a year and spend many hours inside and outside of the gym in support of our program.  Some basketball knowledge is required as well as organization and people skills – plus a commitment to the NTBA and our community.  If you think you have what it takes, please reach out to a Board member to discuss further.

Thank you – go Huskies!
