Hello HBA players, coaches, families and fans!

We are now in the home stretch of this school year – counting down the days until summer freedom! Bike rides, beaches and bonfires await us just around the corner!

Tomorrow is the Raptors’ Championship Parade in Toronto, celebrating their first NBA title win! What an amazing time to be a Raptors’ fan and to be Canadian! It’s incredible how cheering on this team has brought Canada together over the love of basketball.

Our own basketball season registration is OPEN and we don’t want you to miss out on our early bird rates! They are still in effect until August 1st. If you have had any issues with the online registration, our apologies and we suggest you try registering again.

Please remember, the earlier you register, the better the chances of getting the practice area that suits you best.

We are busy getting ready for our upcoming season and can’t wait to see you this fall!

As always, thank you for your support!

Dan Edwards and the HBA Executive
