Our Program

Welcome to the South Delta Basketball Association – a community youth basketball program designed to develop fundamental skills, sportsmanship and a love of the game for basketball.

Fall Program - Grade 4/5 co-ed 
In this age group we build on the fundamentals established during the 2/3 skills development program (players are more than encouraged to join even if they have not attended the 2/3 skill development). The focus is still teaching the players the fundamental basics, skills required and now we begin playing games.

We continue to focus on sportsmanship, learn the rules required to play a game and how to work as a team! We focus on inclusion throughout and players will work in all positions to gain a stronger understanding of the great game of basketball.

We build throughout the year upon game play and conclude the season with playoffs.
