Sun Youth basketball follows Canada Basketball’s safety standards, in our playing environment and care of athletes.

Anyone who has experienced or witnessed abuse, harassment or discrimination is invited to contact Canadian Sport Helpline.
MORE THAN SPORTS
Our athletes’ well-being is important on-court and off. We encourage healthy lifestyles through sport, nutrition and education. For our organization, academic success is as important as athletic success. Children who want to be part of our basketball, football or hockey teams must do well in school.
Sphere Basketball, created in 2009, allows young players passionate about basketball to develop their individual technical skills during the summer. Several Sun Youth athletes participate in the camp each year. A donation will allow a Sun Youth kid in need to participate in the camp for free.
The best basketball teams from Quebec, Ontario and the United States compete in this annual elite event. 200+ players aged 16 to 21 will participate; 600+ fans in attendance over 4 days; thousands of viewers on social media live streams.
Sun Youth wishes to thank every team taking part in the tournament. With so many top teams, scouts and volunteers, the Holiday Classic never disappoints!
