WHO WE ARE
Wolves Basketball has been a significant part of the YM-YWHA’s community since the organization was established in 1910. One of the Y’s fundamental and longest running sports programs, Wolves Basketball has over 600 participants each year, from diverse backgrounds, aged 6 to 18 years. The goal of the program is not only to grow the athletes of today, but the leaders of tomorrow. We believe that to be great athletes, one must represent your team on and off the court. Wolves Basketball runs development programming, elementary leagues, winter house league, day camps, clinics and spring leagues, to garner interest in basketball at a young age. We follow the principles of playing to win, playing fair, respecting opponents, teammates, officials and spectators, as well as, accepting defeat with dignity.
COMMUNITY & EDUCATION
Providing a space for hands-on learning and opportunity is one our primary goals, while respect and dignity is our focus. Being part of the Wolves is a profound learning experience. Athletes build pride and confidence. They adopt a healthy lifestyle and gain exposure to a wider community, all while pushing their limits as they work towards a common goal. A bi-weekly study hall and a #wedogood mission is built into the experience.
SPONSOR A WOLF
Wolves Basketball is a major force in the Intercity League. Last season our teams won 3 Montreal Basketball League Championships, the Showdown Series Championship and 6 tournaments. Our players also have the opportunity to play in other provinces as well as in the USA. With the recent victory of the NBA Toronto Raptors, the Canadian basketball landscape is changing. There are more opportunities than ever for our youth to get involved and participate in basketball. Now is the time to grow.
The backbone of our program is supported by our participants and their families who fund the program. But your contribution can make all the difference. With your help we can update equipment, enter tournaments, provide tutors in our study hall, add a strength and conditioning component to our program, and hire qualified, experienced coaches. Most importantly, it would allow us to maintain reasonable program fees to benefit low-income families. With your support and generosity, we can expand our work to reach more people and strengthen our community for many generations to come.
Wolves Basketball is a family and our facility is home to many of our youth. We have coaches that mentor, encourage and teach life lessons to our players. We need the assistance of community-oriented individuals like you to continue growing our program.
