About the HBA
The HBA is a volunteer-run house league basketball program for girls and boys ages 5 to 18. We are a developmental basketball program and Rep players are not permitted to play in the HBA. Our coaches use training materials from the Steve Nash Youth Basketball Program and Basketball Canada.
We have hundreds of local children playing every weekend from Thanksgiving until March Break.
Practices are held, with the exception of our Junior Boys Division, Monday - Friday evenings with games being played on Saturdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Our Junior Boys Division holds practices and games on Sundays between 11 a.m and 1 p.m.
