In the morning, kids gather in a circle for the coach to give them words of motivation. The kids are then seperated into their skill levels. The counselors help the kids in training such as dribbling, passing and shooting.

In the afternoon, kids play a game of basketball with their respective groups. Counselors, who loves the sport itself, also set up a variety of other games such as dodge ball and capture the flag. SBA created this program to help the kids build a relationship with their peers and to motivate them to work harder on their passion.

Scarborough Basketball Association focuses on building different skills for their campers such as team work, responsibility, communication and sportsmanship. In this camp, kids build character, develop friendships and have a lot of fun. SBA sees that to start at a young age is an opportunity for the kids to discover what they love and help achieve their dream of becoming just their favourite basketball player.
