Dear North Toronto Basketball Families & Friends,
Welcome to the 2014/2015 season!
House League games have started, many Rep teams have already played games – our 25th season is underway.
The NTBA Board continues to strive to offer a high-quality basketball program while controlling often-increasing costs. The Board is pleased that Jason Sealy again leads our Player and Coach Development Program (see Announcement: NTBA High Performance Coach). We hope that this program can build upon our organization’s past success and take us to the next level.
We are also excited to announce that Elite Basketball Camps has again joined the NTBA Community as a sponsor for the 2014/2015 season. 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. Watch for Elite Camps to visit our gyms later this year to share more information and/or see www.elitecamps.com.
We are also pleased to announce that David Dunkelman (www.RealEstateWithDavid.com) has joined us as a sponsor for this season. David coached for six years in our program while his two daughters played and we are delighted that David has returned to the NTBA community.
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 (Become a Sponsor) for more information.
Finally – as a volunteer-led community-based 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 – as well as 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 – have a great season !
President – North Toronto Basketball Association
