Friday Nite Basketball2018-06-15T11:54:49+00:00

A not-for-profit, faith-based program run by Athletes in Action Canada, committed to the ongoing development of local basketball programs across the country.

OUR PURPOSE

To pursue excellence in basketball and to develop the fundamental skills of basketball.
To pursue our More Than A Game philosophy by encouraging personal growth and character development (based on a biblical worldview) which are advantageous in the ‘court’ of life.
To encourage active participation in a fun, positive, and safe environment.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

The fundamentals of basketball are learned through small-sided games which emphasize the fun and competitive sides that basketball offer. These small-sides games (1-on-1, 2-on-2, 3-on-3, etc.) allow players to touch, handle, and shoot the basketball 10 times more! Having this much contact with a basketball each night allows for a greater skill development and individual growth. We aim to create a fun and safe environment focused on challenging kids to continue to pursue excellence on and off the court.
