In a continued effort to connect the UBC Okanagan Heat varsity basketball teams to the Okanagan basketball community, the Heat varsity coaches are pleased to announce the tryout information for the 2019 Junior Heat Boys Basketball Club.


2019 Boys' Tryout Information

Note: Junior Heat club basketball coaches will do their best to keep the cost down for families. If selected for a club team, the registration fee will include team gear, two practices per week from April to June, gym rentals, and coaches honorarium.

We will also host special skill sessions that all club players are welcome to attend. Each team will play in 3 to 5 tournaments in BC and Alberta from April to June (Penticton, Kamloops, and Kelowna will be three close proximity tournaments we plan to participate in during the 2019 season). Costs for these tournaments will be calculated and shared among the team members attending specific events.

We also do our best to support multi-sport athletes and try our best to accommodate busy schedules
