BMO NBA All-Star KidsFest a success

The BMO NBA All-Star KidsFest is now over and it was a big success! Last Fall, the YMCA partnered with NBA Canada to give YMCA members and the general public a chance to get up close and personal with the NBA through these exciting events, held at 13 YMCAs across the country with thousands of children and youth participating.

Each event featured a festival-like atmosphere with interactive NBA games and stations. An NBA Legend was also on hand in each city and special Jr. NBA Clinics were held for kids aged 8-13. We also welcomed NBA mascots and dancers from teams like the Toronto Raptors and Oklahoma Thunder to bring the authentic NBA experience to the Y. 

We’ve built a mutually successful partnership with the NBA and look forward to what the future will bring.
