Hornets Basketball

Basketball e-flyer.jpg

The motivation that led to the creation of Sun Youth in 1954 was to allow disadvantaged youths residing in the St. Louis district in Montreal, to play sports. Today, almost all the young people who attend the organization play sports, either within one of our sports teams, summer camp or day camp.

Our Sports and Recreation Program offers Football and Basketball at the amateur level. All our teams operate under the name of the Sun Youth Hornets. The uniforms are identified by a logo of a hornet, symbolizing the bite to team spirit and love of the sport. The equipment is supplied, with the exception of shoes. Membership fees vary according to the activities and family income.

In addition to the games of the regular season, youth participate in training camps and tournaments at local and national levels and sometimes international. Our athletes aged 13 to 18 years old may also use the supervised weight room.

All activities take place after school hours and during weekends, as academic success is more important than simply having fun.

The 2016-2017 Season

The regular season of basketball is now over, but the playoffs has started for our Hornets!

The playoffs started this weekend for our Hornets who dominated during the quarterfinals. On Friday, our juvenile boys ignited Lucien-Pagé’s gym with their 84-76 win against Pagé. On Saturday, our midgets have fiercely protected the nest from Brookwood and won 82-77. Moreover, they won the audience’s attention with their high game level. Sunday, our bantam boys knocked out Brookwood 49-46 in a heated game. Unfortunately, our mini black suffered a crushing loss of 50-25 on Saturday to the Longueuil Tornadoes. Congratulation to our bantam, midget and juvenile teams who will be participating in the semi-finals this weekend. Catch all the March madness action and come cheer them in great numbers! #GoHornets!
