Youth Basketball

Purpose of Tillsonburg Youth Basketball

The primary goal of Tillsonburg Youth Basketball is to keep kids active while having fun.  Children enrolled in the program will learn the basics in:

While enrolled each child will be provided a team shirt and appropriately sized basketball.


This program is fueled by hard work from volunteers in the Tillsonburg and area community.  The coordinators of the 2023 Tillsonburg Youth Basketball program are Lance Mackenzie, Jesse Goossens and Victoria Sergeant.


We are always looking for additional volunteers to help coach as our program is unable to run without them!  We encourage parents to get involved by helping coach a team.  Our general approach is to have multiple coaches for each team to provide flexibility with regards to attendance.  Multiple coaches also helps when demonstrating basketball skills.  

If you are interest in becoming a volunteer we do require a police check to be in compliance with the Ontario Basketball Associations insurance policy.

3. Skills Training - teaching children basic athletic maneuvers and basketball skills

4. Scrimmage - with the overall goal of having fun and keeping active the kids will learn the rules of basketball as well as how to work as a team.
