About Burloak Basketball

Burloak Basketball is the first club in the GTA to reimagine the structure in which youth basketball is administered. While the sport is fun in and of itself, we believe that the way basketball is consumed has changed, but club basketball has not yet changed with it.  At Burloak Basketball, we want to highlight the experiences that all of our players have while they play throughout the year. In this new age, this begins with technology.  Instead of players telling their parents about something that happened on the court, we want them to be able to show them. 

This starts at the very top. We believe that our strong foundation Will allow our coaches to focus on coaching, our players to focus on playing, and our parents to focus on watching their children play the game they love!

– Chris Denley, Founder of Burloak Basketball.
