Our camps and leagues were founded on the principles of providing high quality instruction in a friendly and inclusive atmosphere for a wide range of skill levels. Participants are separated into groups based on age and skill level. Our coaches are trained to adapt their teaching styles based on the age and skill level of their players along with altering activities to suit the needs of the group. Aspire for higher DOES NOT believe in a 1 size fits all model and all levels are welcome at A4H

All camps take place in an indoor closed facility that the public does not have access to (doors locked from 9:30am – 3:30pm). Please make prior arrangements with staff members if you would like to pick up your child before camp ends as the facility will be locked. All activities will take place in the gymnasium or Cafeteria. Youth campers will go for washroom breaks in pairs (buddy system) and are accompanied by a coach. We follow Ontario standards for child care ratios. Staff to athlete ratios are as follows: 1:10 for athletes 9 and up and 1:5 for athletes 8 and under. All staff members are certified in CPR/First Aid and undergo a criminal records check.

At A4H, we have a proven and safe system in place for the sign-out of campers. No camper leaves the premises without a parent or guardian signing them out. Parents are required to show official identification every day upon pickup of their children and have to be on the list of authorized personnel.

Primarily, children will be separated based on age. Following the first day of camp they will be separated based on skill level. If we feel your child is not in the proper program we will move him/her as we see fit, just speak to one of our staff members on site.

At A4H we believe in improving individual skill development and application as well as basketball IQ among young athletes. At our league we equip athletes with skills to play all positions and play smart. Learning these skills early allows athletes to be more effective as they grow and further develop their skills (regardless of height, speed, or athlete ability). Each week we include 45-minute team skill development sessions and 45-minute refereed game-play.
Each league is 9-weeks long and runs every Saturday. We offer 2 separate sessions: Fall League (September-December), Winter League (January-April).
We have development leagues for kids from Grade 2-8.

All coaches complete an extensive A4H Basketball coach training program which includes enrollment in the National Coaching Certification Program Level 1 (NCCP) (many coaches have level 3 certifications). All coaches have CPR/First Aid and have completed criminal reference checks.

Programs take place at St. Roch Secondary School.
