    THE SCARBOROUGH BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE LAUNCH OF THE TORONTO BLUES ELITE SUMMER TRAVEL PROGRAM

    Years of hard work and dedication has established the SBA as one of the premiere basketball organizations in Ontario and now we are excited to introduce our Toronto Blues Elite Boys Summer Travel Program which will set the bar above all others.

    Our goal is to provide elite level boys basketball players between the U10-U12 age groups in the GTA with unparalleled athletic development training and skills training, while exposing them to the highest level of competition in North America. More importantly, it's more than about basketball! We will develop our athletes' skill level while at the same time developing our athletes outside of the game of basketball by providing our athletes with support needed to acquire positive life-long habits, develop exceptional character, and excel academically in the classroom. Our ultimate goal is that by doing this ALL our athletes will be in a position to obtain academic and/or athletic scholarships to universities/colleges that compete in NCAA, NAIA and CIS. All of our participants will be leaders on and off the court

    Toronto Blues will define what it means to be successful at the next level!


    Athletes selected will receive elite-level training by the team’s coaching staff and our officials, which will include:
    • Academic and Character Development sessions
    • Athletic Development Training to improve strength, movement, endurance and speed.
    • Comprehensive Basketball-specific skill development training
    • High-level competition to some of the top basketball tournaments in North America
