PROFILE: Scarborough Basketball Association (Jean Vanier)

The Scarborough Basketball Association (SBA) is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1996. Their aim is to teach the joy of basketball and the importance of disciplined work ethic to many children living in Scarborough.

This summer branch of the Scarborough Basketball Association is located at Jean Vanier CSS at 959 Midland Avenue. They teach basketball to children ages 5 to 12 years old.

The day starts off with warm-ups and scrimmage for the kids. Eventually, they train the kids through basketball drills and play modified camp games to further improve their skills. Every week, they also try to go on a excursion to a water park. The camp is jam-packed with various activities for the kids to enjoy the summer.

The environment at SBA is a positive and energetic one. Moreover, the coaches are always supportive and patient as the children are eager to learn new skills. The staff truly have a passion for helping the kids become better athletes! The organization inspires and guide kids throughout Scarborough who want to play professionally or are casual players. As they continue to teach many future athletes, it is a wonderful program for a young child wanting to learn the fundamentals of basketball.
