1) Naismith Basketball could not operate without our wonderful volunteers. Everyone working with and for this Organization is a Volunteer, and we know that without them, getting back to the sport we love couldn’t happen! If you are interested in volunteering your time as a coach, assistant coach or a team manager, please contact our coach liaison with your interest.
2) Naismith Basketball requires ALL coaches, assistant coaches, trainers and managers working with our youth teams to submit a current Vulnerable Sector Police Check each year before practices begin. A completed police check will be required before equipment and uniforms can be distributed to coaches.
For your personalized letter that is required to accompany the form below, please contact coach liaison for your personal letter.

4) Rowans Law***
On January 1, 2022, Rowan’s Law - Concussion Safety (Phase 2) will come into effect in the province of Ontario. Phase 2 requires all sport organizations to establish removal-from-sport and return-to-sport protocols for concussion management.
Ontario Basketball’s Concussion Policy, approved and published in July 2019, already outlines these protocols. Additionally, in light of the January 1, 2022 deadline, OBA has recently polished the removal-from-sport and return-to-sport processes and documentation required in this section of the policy. We would like to draw your attention to the newly added resources below, which are also linked at the end of the Concussion Policy online:
