Centre Court - P198:

The Centre Court Club is an opportunity for “friends of basketball” to support program expansion throughout the province, coach development and the enhancement of the Elite Program.

In order to develop the sport at a national level, we need to be able to develop the sport at its base, the provincial level.

This project:

  • aims to help develop players through the consistent use of coaching philosophies within a program that services the coach’s development
  • aids in decreasing costs for athletes/participants/coaches to participate in Basketball BC programs
