What our kids say

Being a part of ABA meant a lot to me. It was always a safe place for me where I really felt like I belonged. The program helped me reconnect with my culture and understand my identity, while also allowing me to do what I love, which is play basketball. It wasn’t just the basketball aspect that was great but getting to connect and create friendships with all the ABA students and teachers made the space a place where I really felt loved and included.


Being in the Aboriginal basketball academy has helped me to reconnect with my culture and given me a great understanding of our identity. I would also say that it is also great to build a strong bond with all the Aboriginal basketball players in the academy.
