– Bell NBA All-Star Challenge Presented by AIRMILES Invites Canada’s Top Competitors on All-Expenses Paid Trip to Compete at NBA All-Star 2016 –

– BMO All-Star Kidsfest at the YMCA Includes Jr. NBA Clinics, NBA Cares Activities, and More –

TORONTO, Nov. 12, 2015 – The NBA today announced a nationwide All-Star 2016 program that will bring the excitement of All-Star to 14 Canadian cities in 10 provinces from November through February.
Anchored by the BMO Financial Group (BMO) NBA All-Star Kidsfest at the YMCA and the Bell NBA All-Star Challenge presented by AIRMILES, the events will take place in Calgary, Charlottetown, Edmonton, Fredericton, Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Regina, Sherbrooke, St. John’s, Toronto, Vancouver, Windsor and Winnipeg. NBA Global Ambassador and Hall of Famer Dikembe Mutombo and former NBA players Muggsy Bogues and Ron Harper, among others, will interact with fans across the country as they participate in All-Star-themed events and basketball activities, including appearances by NBA mascots and NBA team dancers.

“We couldn’t be more excited to bring NBA All-Star 2016 programming to 14 cities across the country,” said NBA Canada Vice President and Managing Director Dan MacKenzie. “As part of our largest grassroots initiative in Canada to date, these events will allow us to grow the game in the birthplace of basketball while also providing top young talent with the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend NBA All-Star. We thank our partners BMO, Bell, AIRMILES, Samsung and the YMCA for helping us make these events possible.”

Each event will tip off with the BMO NBA All-Star Kidsfest at the YMCA, an interactive family-friendly event featuring Jr. NBA clinics and NBA Cares activities such as dance classes led by NBA dancers, and a youth art program that invites the community to design a canvas that will be displayed during NBA All-Star 2016 in February. The YMCA is the community partner of Kidsfest, where young sports enthusiasts will also have the chance to try their hand at news making through the popular BMO Junior Reporter Contest.

The Bell NBA All-Star Challenge presented by AIRMILES, which builds on Bell’s commitment to growing basketball across the country and developing homegrown talent, invites basketball enthusiasts ages 14 and older to realize their All-Star dreams and show off their talent. A cross-country initiative to identify and showcase the country’s next generation of rising stars, the Challenge will invite Canada’s top three-point 2 shooters, skills challenge competitors and dunkers on an all-expenses paid trip to compete for a national title at NBA All-Star 2016 in Toronto. The regional challenges will be held at local universities and tie into each school’s basketball games.

In addition, ambassadors from Samsung Canada will be onsite at each event to provide fans and participants with the ability to personalize their own videos from the events with footage from NBA All-Star 2015.

NBA All-Star 2016 will celebrate the 125th anniversary of the birth of basketball. Toronto also hosted the first game in NBA history on Nov. 1, 1946 at Maple Leaf Gardens. NBA All-Star 2016 in Toronto is the first NBA All-Star to be held outside of the United States.

Come in and tour the Saddletowne YMCA

Are you thinking of joining a fitness facility?  Taking
a tour is an important part of your decision making process and as most of us
know what we are looking for, what better way to know that you are getting what
you want and need than taking a tour.  This allows you to see exactly what
equipment there is and how much is available to members, how big the facility
is and how clean it is.  These all important factors when deciding where
to spend your hard earned dollars.

We recommend that if you are coming in for a tour, that you
try to come in at the time you would be regularly using the facility, this way
you are getting a realistic look at how busy it will be when you are planning
on working out.

 

Tours are available any time during our operating day, so
stop by our Member Services desk and see what this state of the art facility in
your community has to offer.
