WHO WE ARE

OUR HISTORY

2011 marked the genesis of the Vancouver Sports Club and the team’s vision to contribute to the development of grass roots basketball in the Vancouver Mainland and the Fraser Valley areas of British Columbia.  The plan was to unite a passionate and accomplished group of like minded coaches who understand the value in investing time and knowledge in young players during their developmental stages. By 2012 Vancouver Sports club was running on all cylinders with a committed and experienced coaching staff, locations in various areas of the city and a powerful mandate to teach core basketball values that benefit the city’s youth on and off of the basketball court. In 2014 the Vancouver Sports Club and local basketball program “All Ball” joined forces to offer a more comprehensive and progressive basketball development program for players who carry a strong desire to play the game at their highest level possible.

Here at VSC we provide an extended family to assist young people in becoming valuable contributors to their communities. VSC’s offers basketball training and development for youth beginning at the most formative stages of their learning and development through unparalleled access to exceptional experienced coaching and mentorship.

In addition to having extensive coaching experience, many of our coaches are young parents and educators who have competed and/or coached at the highest levels in the sport.
