It is the mission of the Kelowna College Basketball Society to create a sustainable men’s and women’s basketball program at Okanagan College in cooperation with Okanagan College and supported by the community. In doing so we will provide an opportunity for more young men and women to excel at a sport they love while pursuing further education. Within this basketball program, it is our intention to educate and empower our players with confidence, commitment and integrity, so they can live a productive, successful life. Our program will emphasize respect for teammates, peers and community by instilling a code of ethics built on honesty, integrity, responsibility and teamwork. It is our intention to create an environment where every player in our program can reach their full potential, develop their talents and skills in their game and more importantly in life.
Who We Are
We are a group of basketball enthusiasts with a long history of coaching, fundraising for and promoting the game of basketball in the Okanagan. We believe that there is a huge void in our basketball community. In response, we have formed the Kelowna College Basketball Society for the express purpose of reestablishing a men’s and women’s basketball program at Okanagan College. For more than a year we have worked with the College to create an agreement with the newly formed society. The society will be solely responsible for all expenses related to the basketball program. Our society will work to develop long-term relationships throughout our community to establish fundraising opportunities for a stable program. We are community minded, community driven and passionate about basketball and kids and their future. We are motivated to motivate our youth.
Our vision as a program is much more than just playing basketball, we are developing a culture, a work hard attitude, an atmosphere that will give each player the opportunity to thrive. We want to create strong lasting relationships within our teams, within our college, and within our communities.
