VanCity Basketball Academy was started as a youth club for players of all abilities. Whether your goal is to make your Grade 8 team or to play in the NBA, we want to help support and guide each athlete to reach their potential. VanCity believes in hard work, discipline, team work and fair-play. We strive to create a fun and educational environment for kids of all ages. We want each athlete to feel part of the VanCity Basketball family while they play in our club as well as when they leave and continue on to whatever life may bring them in basketball.
What Parents Say About Us:
Both of my son’s have been involved in Vancity Basketball Academy for both VBL & club teams. We keep coming back for more each season. My boys are learning while having fun, growing as athletes under amazing coaches & feel well supported. The model that Jamie has developed includes all the important factors of team sport to our family- fun, skill development, self esteem, team development, compassion & commitment, to mention a few.”

Our son is currently playing university basketball. Vancity is one of the reasons he was was able to take his game to the next level. This sport requires hard work, determination, team work, confidence and skill. Jamie and all the coaches at Vancity are dedicated to providing this type of environment where players can aspire to play ball at the next level or just play great basketball. They truly care about kids and are also committed to making sure no kid should miss out on any of their programs through their “Ernie Oei scholarships”. As a parent, this speaks volumes to the heart of the organization.”
