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.
