About Basketball Leagues at Average Joe Sports Club
Basketball Leagues in Burlington, Oakville, Mississauga and Hamilton organized by Average Joe Sports Club is one of the more popular sports amongst our Members. Founded in Canada by James Naismith, basketball is one of the fastest growing sports in this country. There are a lot of youth leagues around; however, upon searching, we found that it was quite difficult to find a Burlington basketball league or Oakville basketball league for adults. We decided to create a 3-on-3 league concept since we enjoyed playing in various 3-on-3 basketball tournaments during the summers around Southwestern Ontario. To our knowledge, it is still the only 3-on-3 basketball league in the area. We essentially took the fun of playing pick up ball outside or at the local YMCA and brought it into an organized league in a nice gym with hard wood floors.
When possible, we offer multiple levels of play for our basketball leagues. These basketball leagues include recreational, intermediate and competitive. These levels help us to ensure that there is an Average Joe Sports Club basketball league for everyone - regardless of their playing ability. No matter which league you play in, we encourage sportsmanship and fair play.
For the Burlington, Hamilton and Oakville regions, our 3-on-3 basketball leagues are offered year-round, split into 4 seasons (winter, spring, summer and fall). People can register as either a team or as an individual (where they are put on a team).
Because of the success and good feedback of the 3-on-3 basketball leagues, we started running one day Saturday 3-on-3 basketball tournaments in the spring of 2008. We now run one tournament in the fall (October/November) and one in the winter/spring (sometime between February and April). These have been successful in combining teams from our weekly leagues with some out-of-town teams that drive in just for the tournament. We look forward to continue organizing and offering our basketball tournaments and basketball leagues in Burlington, Oakville, Mississauga and Hamilton.
