Overview of our basketball program

Since its foundation over 50 years ago, the AGBU Montreal sports program has been centered around the sport of basketball. Our goal is to offer all our members an enjoyable experience, whether they are playing on a competitive or recreational level. Here's an overview of our program :

We offer basketball for nearly all ages

What began as one senior team is now a collection of 10 teams and over 100 players! Nowadays, boys and girls can join our program starting from the age of 6 years old. Here are our 2018-2019 teams, spanning the ages of 6 to 65:

  • Mini category : U10 girls and boys, U13 boys, U16 boys
  • Junior category : U21 girls, U21 boys
  • Senior category : 2 teams of Sr Men, Veteran Men

We offer an excellent development program for children

All boys and girls under the age of 16 enter our development program. This program is intended for both beginners and experienced players. It is meant to teach children the game of basketball in a fun and safe environment and by a highly competent coach with years of experience in basketball training. Our coach is FIBA certified, a level of expertise and qualification that is truly rare even at the most prestigious and expensive basketball clubs in Quebec. The program focuses on building individual skills while teaching team play. Take home message : your child will learn the game, the right way, by the right coach and have fun in the process.

We offer basketball on both competitive and recreational levels

Several AGBU teams play in competitive leagues throughout the city. Conversely many of our members are casual players looking for a weekly scrimmage. Whatever the case, as a community-based organization, our program offers an opportunity for both the competitive and recreational player.

We offer basketball in a community based setting

Community remains central to everything we do at AGBU Montreal Sports. We will continue to provide a safe, friendly and welcoming environment, as this is the foundation upon which any community-centered sports program should operate!

We offer basketball nearly all year long

During our season, which begins in September and ends in May, our members play in their respective age categories and teams. During the summer, we have a weekly co-ed league open to all men and women ages 17+
