What is Community Club Basketball?

The WMBA’s main program offered is its Community Club Basketball League (a.k.a. Club Basketball).  The Fall / Winter and Spring league is open to boys and girls ages 9-18 (10 girls).  There are no ‘tryouts’ for club basketball as we make as many teams in the area based on the number of players who register.

We offer both a Fall / Winter league which runs October through March and a Spring League from April to June.  The Club league holds its games weekends (traditionally teams ages 12 and under play Saturdays and ages 13+ run Sundays) along with one practice during the weeknights.

The WMBA is a city-wide league, so teams will be competing against other teams from around the city.  We attempt to keep games in a central location fair to all teams in the program.  Age divisions are set roughly every 1 to 2 years.  We are always looking for people to get involved at the league level as either a coach or an administrator.

The Steve Nash Youth Basketball Program (SNYB) is a national youth basketball program designed to develop fundamental skills, sportsmanship and a love of the game for basketball. This grassroots initiative supports and empowers community-based recreational groups across Canada in an effort to positively influence youth through basketball.  The goal of the program is to allow participants the opportunity to maximize their potential, while promoting the importance of youth basketball as a vehicle to build character, discipline, self-esteem and sportsmanship.   The model for Steve Nash Youth Basketball was established after extensive research of existing community basketball programs from across North America and follows the guidelines of Sport Canada’s Long Term Athlete Development Model (LTAD).

The WMBA is a city-wide league, so teams will be competing against other teams from around the city.  We attempt to keep games in a central location fair to all teams in the program.  Age divisions are set roughly every 1 to 2 years.  We are always looking for people to get involved at the league level as either a coach or an administrator.
