2019-20 Season Info

We offer more basketball exposure than any other Competitive Club Team for this age group, similar to a Junior Academy Team. Gold Medal is affiliated with London Basketball Academy

Our season runs from Sept-April. 

We also plan to extend our season with a Spring/Summer team, for those interested, from May-July(1-2 spring practices a week, 2 tournaments)

We practice 2-3 days per week with additional optional practices and open gyms for players who would like extra practice time to work on certain aspects of their game or receive some one on one extra coaching.
