Mega Hoops Finishes the School Year Mega Hot
Over 6,000 students in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area took part in Ontario Basketball’s flagship community program, Mega Hoops, during the 2017-18 school year.
Surpassing the goal of 6,000 participants, Ontario Basketball ran the physical literacy program for a total of 6,202 students between Junior Kindergarten and Grade 8 at a total of 21 elementary schools to teach fundamental movement and basic basketball skills. Mega Hoops not only focuses on students, but also supports teachers with easy-to-use curriculum in addition to providing trained Mega Hoops clinicians to deliver programming through gym classes or special events.
Mega Hoops is age- and stage-appropriate with activities and instruction in line with Sport for Life’s Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) Model principles. The program is designed to engage students and pique interest in basketball in a fun and inclusive environment for three LTAD age groups: Active Start (ages 0–6), FUNdamentals (ages 6–9), and Learn to Train (ages 9–12).
Through interactive games, dynamic warm-ups, and basic basketball drills, students learn to move with competence and confidence, giving them the tools they need to be active for life.
