OBA proud recipients of Jumpstart Sport Relief Fund

Ontario Basketball is thrilled to announce that we have been among those selected to receive funding from the Jumpstart Sport Relief Fund!

This incredible initiative from Canadian Tire Jumpstart is helping over 650+ organizations across the nation to preserve play and give Canadian kids resources for sports.

“While COVID-19 has interrupted our season and made it difficult to get back to the courts, the Jumpstart Sport Relief fund will help kids continue in their basketball development,” said executive director Jason Jansson. “We’re honoured to be selected, and the basketball community in Ontario will benefit greatly.”

The OBA will use the funds to develop COVID-proof program tools that enable kids to be engaged and active while staying safe under all current health protocols. It will also be invested in resources that will help kids get back in gyms wherever possible.

We want to encourage all those in the OBA community, and those in sports across the country, to continue to develop and embrace this year as another challenge on a lifelong journey of sport.
