NTBA Community Update (Jul 2019)

North Toronto Basketball Association (NTBA) Families & Friends,

The 2018/2019 NTBA season is complete .. and we are getting ready for the **2019/2020** season!

House League.  Registration for the **2019/2020** Boys (http://ntbasketball.com/boys-house-league/about/) & Girls (http://ntbasketball.com/girls-house-league/about/) HL season  – which runs from Oct 2019 to Feb 2020 – opened Thu Apr 4 for Returning players and Fri Apr 26 for New players (space permitting).  As of late-Jun .. almost 900 players have registered!  Space is limited (some divisions are at/near capacity) – please register if you have not already done so.

Rep.  2018/2019 Rep team information is visible in the Rep section  (http://ntbasketball.com/rep-program/rep-team-coach-contact-details/) of our website.  Ontario Cup play is now complete – several teams achieved medals – congratulations to all!  **2019/2020** Rep team tryouts are scheduled for the weekends of Sep7&8 and Sep14&15 at HoopDome.  Please check the Rep section of our website in Aug for specific team tryout times.

We thank our 2018/2019 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.  Westdale Properties (http://www.westdaleproperties.com/), David Dunkelman (http://www.realestatewithdavid.com/), entripy.com (https://www.entripy.com/) and Sister Sports (sistersports.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!
