"One of the most exciting moments for our basketball players this year was the opportunity to play on the court at the ACC, before a Raptors game. For many of our players, this was the first time they had visited the ACC, and their first time attending an NBA game. Showing off their skills on the court, and then staying to watch the Raptors was a truly special experience for our players.

The trip to the ACC speaks to the impact of our sports programs. The basketball program is about much more than learning basketball skills; we strive to inspire youth in the community to be the best they can be, both on and off the court. A visit to the ACC not only gave our youth a chance to see some of their basketball heroes in action, and to play on the same court as professional athletes, it also provided an opportunity for youth from Regent Park to see a new part of Toronto, and get a taste of life outside their neighbourhood."
