The Big Brothers Big Sisters programming is a particular highlight as OBA clinicians deliver eight-week programs to community youth, providing fun, engaging basketball drills and skills along with life lessons. Another highlight in 2015-2016 was working closely with the NBA to facilitate the participation of over 700 youth in NBA All-Star Weekend community programming at the Enercare Centre – with 300 of those youth coming from community partner organizations.
