The School Basketball Academy was created by Mike Lee after his career at the University College of the Fraser Valley where he had a storied career winning 2 gold medals in the National CCAA Championships and one as an assistant coach. He was a pioneer in the Club Program history in British Columbia, as the School was one of the first private club programs in BC.
The early years saw the players in the program working on their skills in the off season and then going on to help their high school teams in the fall. In Mike's last year full-time in the program, all the boys in the program went on to play in college or university teams. Mike always thought " players need to develop in the off season by repetition of skill development and competing against other good players in the region".
Abbotsford Basketball Club (ABC) began when the club began playing more games against other club programs in BC and the United States. Over the years, ABC has played up to between 40 and 50 games a summer developing players from around the Upper Fraser Valley.
ABC has tasked a new direction by working with the City of Abbotsford in bringing basketball to boys and girls in Grade 2 through 9. The hope is to develop players that love the game and want to become the best they can be as they dream dreams of playing for their school teams and beyond.
The goal of ABC is to continue to broaden the program through the years and develop teams at the U12 through U17 that play competition throughout British Columbia, Canada and the United States over the summer months while developing skills during the fall, winter and spring sessions.
The Abbotsford Basketball Club provides players in Grade 1 through 12 an opportunity to experience basketball games with players of their own age in a controlled competitive setting.
We are hoping to teach kids about the fundamentals of the game of basketball and to teach them the character traits it takes to be a great player and a good teammate.
